Combs arrived in Allen today to be reunited with his former Tulsa Oilers and Colorado Eagles linemate Chad Costello, who was signed by the Americans last week.
"They are one of the highest scoring combos in AA history," said Allen Americans Head Coach and General Manager Steve Martinson. "I'm expecting them to put on a scoring clinic while we have them together."
Jack Combs brings top line skill to an already talented Americans lineup. He put up 79 points in 50 games over two seasons with the Colorado Eagles, in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013.
