Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Seattle Kraken (NHL), announced today that forward Spencer Asuchak has signed a PTO with the Charlotte Checkers (AHL).
Asuchak could make his Charlotte debut Tuesday night when the Charlotte Checkers host Springfield at 6:05 pm CST.
Spencer Asuchak is coming off a five-point game on Sunday afternoon in Tulsa, with a goal and four helpers in the Americans 8-0 win over the Oilers.
“It’s great for Spencer,” said Americans Head Coach and GM Steve Martinson. “With all the players up and down due to Covid, it gives a guy like Asuchak, who is having a good season an opportunity.”
