September 21, 2018 - 10:24 am

ALLEN (KRLD) - The love of hockey is alive and well in the city of Allen...and we're not talking about the Dallas Stars.

The Allen Americans are the city's minor league hockey team...about to start their season. For the last 10 years, the Americans have made friends out of their fans...and that welcoming vibe makes the Allen Events Center a weekly destination during hockey season.

"The people that are coming to our games are deciding if they are going to a movie tonight, bowling, a movie, or are we going to an American's game," media director Tommy Daniels says. 

Daniels also calls the American's games. He says the team has become a fixture in Allen, sharing their voices at important city meetings, and always keeping games fun with different theme nights.

The team has Star Wars, Harry Potter, and DC Comics night on the books for the upcoming season. 

Daniels says the Allen Americans have converted people across Collin County into hockey lovers. Their preseason kicks off next month.
