Training Camp Begins, Wild Assign Six Players, Allen Players Still at AHL Camps, Allen Success Unparalleled

After a long summer being reminded of the worst season in Allen Americans history the page officially turns today as the team takes the ice to begin the 2019-20 season. Allen is scheduled to take the ice at 11:00 am in the community rink and remember practice is open to the public.

 

– You will definitely need a program with so many new players on the ice. Here is the status of the roster as of this morning. Steve Martinson has 19 players under contract:

Forwards
Spencer Asuchak
Jacob Doty
Gabriel Gagne
Alex Guptill
Mike Hedden
Regan Nagy
Shawn O’Donnell
Brett Pollock
Jason Salvaggio
Braylon Shmyr
Jordan Topping

Defensemen
Josh Atkinson
Kayle Doetzel
Les Lancaster
Turner Ottenbreit
Ben Owen
Matt Register

Goalies
Jake Paterson
Evan Weninger

 

– From what I can determine this morning there are five players on the list above still at AHL training camps. The rest are either back in Allen or on their way back. Here are the five still at AHL camps:

Iowa Wild
Josh Atkinson
Les Lancaster
Matt Register

Ontario Reign
Jake Doty

Toronto Marlies
Ragan Nagy

 

– Iowa has assigned six of their contracted players to the Americans:

Forwards
Olivier Archambault
Tyler Sheehy

Defensemen
Alex Breton
Stepan Falkovsky
Jack Sadek

Goalie
Dereck Baribeau

 

– The final component of the training camp roster is up to five players that have been invited to tryout. I don’t have the names but coach Martinson did share with me that three of the tryout players are from the DFW area. I will have the names tomorrow.

 

– With the addition of the six Wild contracted players to the Allen roster the total number of AHL games played by the entire group (25 players) is now at 1140.

 

 

DID YOU KNOW: The 2019-20 season will be the 11th for the Allen franchise. While Allen missed the playoffs last season the success over the last 10 seasons is unparalleled. Here are the results:

4 – championships
1 – loss in the finals
1 – third round loss
1 – second round loss
2 – first round losses
1 – out of playoffs
