Get your broom ready: The Allen Americans completed the three-game sweep of the Newfoundland Growlers on Sunday afternoon with a 4-2 victory over the team from Canada. Four different players scored for the Americans, who won their third in a row. Tyler Poulsen, Jackson Leppard Kris Myllari and Chad Costello for the Americans. Rookie netminder Luke Peressini picked up the win, his first professional win stopping 35 shots-on-goal. The Americans went 1-for-5 on the power play, while Newfoundland went 0-for2.

Back-to-Back Rookie Wins: For the first time in team history, the Allen Americans had rookie netminders get their first pro win on back-to-back nights. Rookie Chase Perry stopped 35-of-36 shots on Saturday night to get the win, and Luke Peressini stopped 35 shots on Sunday in a 4-2 win. Peressini also assisted on the Americans empty-net goal by Chad Costello for his first professional point. Chase Perry was released on Tuesday.

Owen gets a chance up front: Americans defenseman Ben Owen, moved to forward last Sunday afternoon due to a depleted Allen lineup. Owen took his first two professional faceoffs going 1-for-2. Owen, an Allen resident noted, “I was nervous in the circle but excited to win my first faceoff.”

Troock Misses Game on Sunday: Americans forward Branden Troock suffered a lower-body injury on Saturday night that kept him out of the Americans lineup on Sunday. He is listed as game-to-game.

Americans trade for Defenseman: The Allen Americans acquired defenseman Jake Kearley on Monday afternoon from the Florida Everblades for future considerations. The 26-year-old defenseman who grew up near Toronto played in 24 games for the Everblades this season and had two points and 54 penalty minutes.
