We are proud of our winning tradition and want you to come #LiveInTheRed with us as dedicated fans and sponsors.

2013 Championship

CHL Presidents’ Cup

Starting with the 2013 Central Hockey League Presidents’ Cup Championship, the first ever title for Allen, the Americans would be involved in a dramatic double-overtime game 7 victory over the Wichita Thunder. With Wichita up 2-0 in the third period, the Allen Americans scored two goals in the final half of the frame. Jarret Lukin opened the scoring, at the halfway point of the period, to cut the lead to 2-1. The game would remain that way until two and a half minutes left in regulation, when defenseman Trevor Hendrikx blasted a slap shot from the outside that found the back of the net to tie the game at 2-2. The Americans didn’t wait long in the extra session to end the game, as Todd Robinson fired a shot from along the right-wing boards just over two minutes into overtime that beat Wichita goalie Torrie Jung. That historic shot gave the Allen Americans their first title with a 3-2 win. American-born forward Brian McMillin was named the CHL Playoffs MVP.

2014 Championship

CHL Presidents’ Cup

The Allen Americans would be the last man standing again in 2014, the final season for the now defunct Central Hockey League. Allen faced the Denver Cutthroats for the first time ever in the finals, as the two would square off in the Presidents’ Cup Championship. After losing game one to Denver on the road, the Americans would win four straight games, two of which came in overtime, to claim their second straight Presidents’ Cup Championship. Game 2 hero Jamie Schaafsma scored two goals, including the game winner in OT, and was named the playoffs MVP.

2015 Championship

ECHL Kelly Cup

The 2014-2015 season saw the Allen Americans and six other teams from the Central Hockey League join the ECHL. Allen had another great roster assembled that included the league’s scoring champ, Chad Costello. The excitement started in the Western Conference Finals in 2015, where the team trailed the Ontario Reign 2-1 in the series, and were down 2-1 in game 5 before mounting their amazing comeback. Allen outscored Ontario 5-0 in the third period, with two of the five goals coming off the stick of Spencer Asuchak, for a 6-2 Allen victory. The Americans took Games 6 & 7 back in Allen to advance to their third straight finals appearance.

The Americans and South Carolina Stingrays met for the first time ever and split the first two games of the Kelly Cup Finals in Allen. After losing Game 1, Gary Steffes would step up as the hero in Game 2 with two goals. Allen fell in Game 3 on home ice and headed to South Carolina for the next three. Allen won back to back games at the North Charleston Coliseum, with Vincent Arseneau scoring the double overtime winner in Game 4 to even the series, followed by Greger Hanson’s overtime winner in Game 5 to give Allen the 3-2 series lead. South Carolina would take Game 6 at home before the series shifted back to Allen for Game 7. The Americans jumped on the Stingrays early and often in that final game, cruising to a 6-1 victory and claiming their first Kelly Cup Championship and third title in a row. Greger Hanson was named playoffs MVP, finishing third overall in the postseason scoring race with 29 points.

2016 Championship

ECHL Kelly Cup

The Allen Americans made it four straight trips to the league finals in 2016. It was the first ever playoff matchup against the Wheeling Nailers. Much like the year before, the Americans would split the first two games on home ice, winning Game 1 and dropping Game 2. The series was physical as it shifted to West Virginia for three in a row.

The Nailers would grab their only lead in the series with a 3-2 win in Game 3. From that point on, the Americans took control of the series. Allen won three straight games, two in Wheeling, and the final victory coming at Allen Event Center in Game 6. The Americans beat the Nailers 4-2 in the series clincher to claim their second straight Kelly Cup, and fourth championship in a row. Chad Costello won his first ever Playoffs MVP, leading the league in postseason scoring with 36 points.
