Looking for Jake Allen

Published January 4, 2022 at 10:07

Yesterday afternoon, my colleague Christian Matte sent me the Montreal Canadiens roster online at NHL.com.

On this one, all the names are there, except for Jake Allen. The ones on covid protocol and the injured are all there, but Jake Allen is not on that list.


* Anton Forsberg also does not appear on the Ottawa Senators roster via the NHL website.

That said, looking at all the other teams, Allen doesn't figure there either. But then, where is he? Has the organization trade him and we're waiting for the new executive director to be hired to announce it? No, it doesn't make sense. If he got traded, the announcement would be made.

Note that Jake Allen appears on CapFriendly.com, a site that is always up-to-date and aware of changes in each of the teams.

As a blogger, we love to dig around and find this kind of stuff, but in this case, the observation is the following, after a discussion with a source: it's a mistake from the NHL since on the list that journalists receive from the league, Allen is still with the Canadiens, but on the COVID list.
