The former Montreal Canadiens goaltender, Jake Allen, surprised everyone on Sportsnet, and a big announcement involving him has just been made official.

Indeed, now that his season is over with the New Jersey Devils' elimination, the 33-year-old veteran made his first appearance yesterday on the set of "Hockey Night in Canada" during the playoffs. Wow!



Like PK Subban, who joined the analyst panel during the playoffs while still an active player, another former CH player is making his mark on television.


Moreover, what's really pleasing about this unexpected news involving Allen is that there are only good comments on social media. Even journalist Arpon Basu was very positive about the work done by the goaltender, claiming that a career as an analyst would be almost assured.

"When his playing days are over, he will have a long and prolific career doing this, if he wants. One of the most eloquent players I've covered in talking about the game and someone who knows the game inside out." – Arpon Basu

As Basu pointed out, Allen has all the attributes necessary to succeed in the media once his playing career is over. Let's hope to see him continue this path successfully.
