Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Seattle Kraken (NHL), announced today that defenseman Nolan Kneen, has been signed to a Professional Tryout Contract by the Charlotte Checkers (AHL).

Nolan Kneen is in his second season of professional hockey with the Americans. In 15 games this year Kneen has nine points (3 goals and 6 assists). He is eighth on the team in scoring.

The 5-foot-11 and 185-pound blueliner played in 25 games last season for the Americans before suffering a season-ending injury.
