Americans Get a Point in a Shootout Loss

October 20, 2018 - ECHL (ECHL) - Allen Americans News Release

Wichita, Kansas - The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, lost in a shootout to the Wichita Thunder by a score of 6-5 on Friday night at the Intrust Bank Arena.

Americans rookie forward Braylon Shmyr had a big night, scoring his first career hat trick and adding an assist in the loss. Allen rookie defenseman Alex Breton scored his first career goal and added two assists.

"It's always tough when you lose one of these games," said Braylon Shmyr. "We battled hard to tie up the game up and secure a point. We wanted that extra point. But getting three out of four against a good team in their building on two consecutive weekends is not bad. Now we have to take care of business at home tomorrow night."

Dante Salituro also had a good night with two goals for the Americans. Allen went 0 for 5 on the power play, while Wichita finished 0 for 3. Seven different players got on the score sheet for Allen.

Dallas/Fort Worth native Colin Jacobs had the only goal in the shootout for Wichita. The Thunder won the battle of shots on goal 47 to 43.
