Americans announce affiliation with Ottawa

ALLEN, Texas - The Allen Americans announced that they have reached an affiliation agreement with the National Hockey League's Ottawa Senators and the American Hockey League's Belleville Senators.

"The Americans' franchise carries a rich tradition of success," said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "We're looking forward to contributing to it in a positive manner when we begin placing prospects in Allen in 2022-23."

"Chad Costello and his staff's tutelage will help our prospects prepare for the next level," said Senators assistant general manager and Belleville Senators' general manager Ryan Bowness. "Player development is one of our most important priorities. We're confident that placing prospects in Allen will be an asset to progression."

Originally founded in 2009 as a member of the Central Hockey League, the Americans have served as the ECHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, Minnesota Wild and Seattle Kraken since entering the league in 2014. Upon joining the ECHL, the Americans have claimed two Kelly Cups (2015, 2016) as league champions and have reached the postseason in six of the seven seasons in which they have competed.
