Swept in Utah: The Allen Americans were swept over the weekend in Utah. The losing streak has reached three games. The Americans played their best game of the series on Sunday afternoon losing 4-3 despite being outshot 38-24. The Americans put on great pressure late in the third period but were unable to get the tying goal past Utah Goalie Trent Miner. Forward Jackson Leppard cut the Utah lead to one goal at 4-3 with his second goal of the game at the 14:09 mark of the period, but that is as close as it got.  Chad Butcher had the other Allen goal his third of the season.

New Goalie Still Looking for his First Start: With Antoine Bibeau up in the NHL with Seattle, and Francis Marotte still in San Diego (AHL), the Americans claimed goaltender Chase Perry off waivers from Florida last week. The St Paul, Minnesota native was the backup netminder all weekend in three losses to Utah. Perry is a former draft pick of the Detroit Red Wings, going 136th over in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He played the majority of last season in the SPHL with the Pensacola Ice Flyers.

Americans Yield Another Shorty: Utah forward Matthew Boucher scored a shorthanded goal for the second game in a row. Boucher had a penalty shot goal shorthanded on Saturday night and followed that up with another shorty on Sunday. Allen has given up a league-leading 14 shorthanded goals in 34 games.

Troock Gets the Big Apple: Americans forward Branden Troock reached a personal milestone on Sunday afternoon picking up two assists. The first of the afternoon was his 100th professional assists.

Asuchak and Kneen in Charlotte: Americans forward Spencer Asuchak remains in the American Hockey League with Charlotte. In four games with the Checkers this season, he has no points with one shot on goal. Nolan Kneen has played in six games for the Checkers and has four points (1 goal and 3 assists).
