Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Seattle Kraken (NHL), announced today that the team has traded for forward Gavin Gould, from the Greenville Swamp Rabbits.

“We needed a change to get some offensive chemistry going,” noted Allen Americans General Manager and Head Coach Steve Martinson. “Gavin (Gould) had a solid college career and can provide some offensive spark.”
