The Scouting Report
In 2014, the Allen Americans transitioned from the Central Hockey League to the ECHL, and the impact was felt immediately: Allen blazed through its all-new competition to win the league’s trophy, the Kelly Cup, in the franchise’s first season as the San Jose Sharks’ ECHL affiliate. This season, the team’s success shows no signs of slowing, as the squad recently completed a four-game road trip—one of the longest of the 2014–15 season—with three wins, putting them at 4–2 for the year. Without any breakout players to dominate the league tables, the Americans rely on a balanced attack to play smart, solid hockey. That’s a good strategy that will hopefully prevent any rash mistakes, such as skating onto the thin patch of ice at the center of the rink.
Legions of red, white, and blue-swathed fans fill the Allen Event Center to watch the Americans deliver board-shaking checks and high-octane slap shots on the ice below. A minor-league affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, the Allen Americans skate their way around competition of the ECHL.
A relatively young franchise—they first competed in the 2009–10 season—the Americans immediately established themselves as a playoff contender, advancing to the championship series in 2010. Finally, in 2013, the Americans won the elusive Ray Miron’s President Cup. They followed that championship with another in 2014 before skating out of the CHL and into the Western Conference of the ECHL—where they won the Kelly Cup in their very first season.
