Las Vegas, Nevada – The Allen Americans and Indy Fuel completed a deal today from last season that sent Jake Marchment and a player to be named later to the Fuel in exchange for Tyler Barnes, who was reassigned to Allen from Rockford (AHL).
The Americans have parted ways with Harrison Ruopp, who was announced today as that player to be named later. Ruopp played 46 games with Allen last season and had 81 penalty minutes. He also played in three games last season with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL).
This transaction completes all deals from last season. Earlier this week the Americans traded forward Dyson Stevenson to Wichita Thunder. Late last season Allen dealt defenseman Randy Cure and a player to be named later to Wichita for future considerations. Binghamton then reassigned forward Alex Krushelnyski to Allen.
The Americans open the regular season on Friday, October 13th in Rapid City. Allen opens at home on Saturday, October 21st against Orlando. Season tickets are on sale NOW at www.allenamericans.com or call (972)912-1000 for more information.
