Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans of the ECHL announced this evening they have acquired Goalie Aaron Dell, from the Utah Grizzlies.
Dell was the Americans starting goaltender in their championship run in the 2012-2013 season. The native of Airdrie, Alberta spent last year with the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL. He played in 29 games with a record of 19-7-3 and 2.14 goals against average.
“It’s great to have Aaron Dell back in Allen,” said Americans Head Coach and General Manager Steve Martinson. “He was a big part of us winning a championship two seasons ago. He had outstanding year last year with Utah and good training camp showing with San Jose and Worcester this year. We feel very fortunate to get him back to join us in the ECHL.”
Dell was named the CHL’s Most Outstanding Goalie in 2012-2013 while with the Americans. Last year he was named the Warrior Hockey Goalie of the Month for January 2014.
He is expected to join his new team in time for Sunday’s training camp session. The Americans will open the regular season on Friday, October 24th at home against the Tulsa Oilers. Tickets are on sale now at www.ticketmaster.com or call (972) 912-1000.
