Allan Released by Hurricanes

Scott-Allan-socThe Lethbridge Hurricanes Hockey Club announced Thursday that the team has re-assigned 19-year-old defenseman Scott Allan to the West Kelowna Warriors of the British Columbia Hockey League.

The Thornton, Colorado product was acquired at the 2014-2015 Western Hockey League trade deadline from the Seattle Thunderbirds. Allan appeared in 31 games with the Hurricanes last year collecting one assist along with 33 penalty minutes.

Hurricanes General Manager, Peter Anholt said it was a tough decision to let Allan go, “we would like to thank Scotty for his commitment and dedication, especially in the second part of last year. It was a difficult decision and we wish him all the best in the future.”

With the move, the Hurricanes now have a total of 25 players on their roster including two goaltenders, eight defenseman and 15 forwards as they head into Friday’s season opener.

The Hurricanes host the rival Medicine Hat Tigers on Friday at the ENMAX Centre in the Dairy Queen Home Opener. There will be a tailgate party beginning at 5:00pm with a by donation Bar-B-Que providing burgers and water courtesy of Mr. Mikes SteakhouseCasual – all proceeds of the BBQ will go to the United Way.

Individual game tickets and flex packs for the 2015-2016 season are now available by calling (403) 329-SEAT. Tickets for the Home Opener are also available at any Dairy Queen location in Lethbridge.
