In the pros: McMillin re-signs with CHL Allen Americans

The Allen Americans announced on Tuesday the team and former CC forward Brian McMillin agreed on a deal for the 2012-2013 season.

McMillin will be back for a third term with the Americans, playing in 32 games in 2010-2011, and 64 games in 2011-2012. He had his best year as a pro last season, scoring 16 goals with 27 assists for 43 points.

Prior to his time in Allen, the Roseau, Minn., native played a portion of two seasons in the ECHL for the Kalamazoo Wings and 2006-10 with Colorado College.

“I’m excited to be back,” said McMillin. “Allen seems like home to me now, playing here for a third year in a row. I was excited to hear about the positive changes this off-season with the former NHL players joining the team. I know this will have a positive influence on the boys in the room who looked up to these guys as kids.”

Craig Ludwig, along with Mike Modano, Ed Belfour and Richard Matvichuk, are part of the new ownership of the Allen Americans. Matvichuk will also assume the role of Assistant General Manager and coach the defensemen. They join the team of owner Doug Miller and President Matt Canavan.

McMillin has been very active in the community since joining the Americans, spending a lot of time visiting schools, as well as taking part in charity events in the area.

The Allen Americans will begin their fourthseason in the Central Hockey League this October. Season tickets are on sale now by calling the Americans office at 972-912-1000.
