Losing Streak Hits Seven With Shootout Loss, Game Recap, Martinson’S Comments, Comparing This Season To Last, Blowing Leads At Home And More | Allen Americans Hockey Club

– I was asked yesterday to compare the stats from this season to the same time last season. Remember last season the Americans barely made the playoffs. These stats compare this season and last season after 14 games played.

Record: 3-9-0-2 this season compared to 7-4-2-1 last season.
Goals for: Allen has scored 40 goals thus far, last season they had 47 after 14 games.
Goals against: The Americans have allowed 58 goals this season, compared to 40 last season.
Power play %: This season it is 14.9%, last season it was 15.7%.
Penalty kill %: This season it is 84.3%, last season 89.6%.

The goals for and against really stand out. The 2018-19 roster was billed as a very high scoring team but have scored seven fewer goals (40-47) than last season. The defensive woes are very apparent as the Americans have allowed 18 more goals (58-40) this season than last season. If you put goals for and against stats together you can see why the team is in last place. Last season the goal differential was +7 while this season it is -18.

– Braylon Shmyr missed five Allen games while in Springfield (AHL) but still leads the Americans in scoring. Here are the top five:

14 points (7G, 7A) – Braylon Shmyr
13 points (5G, 8A) – Spencer Asuchak
12 points (2G, 10A) – Alex Breton
11 points (7G, 4A) – Zach Pochiro
11 points (5G, 6A) – Dante Salituro

– If you have ever wanted to win a jersey at one of the auctions and were always outbid as the price got too expensive you might want to check out the current jersey auction taking place through the website Live Source. There are a lot of the veterans day specialty jerseys and a few of the pink specialty jerseys up for auction. This auction will end on Tuesday (November 13) at 9:00 pm. You can get more details and download the app here: http://www.livesourceapp.com/[3]

As of this morning there were 21 jerseys with no minimum bid ($250) and another nine with only the $250 minimum bid so many of these should go at relatively inexpensive prices.

– Tomorrow I will post the second of our “Where Are They Now” series and it will be the opportunity to catch up with goalie Chris Whitley. Chris led the first year Allen Americans (2009-10) to the CHL championship finals.
