Americans Vs Brahmas Postponed Tonight
ALLEN, Texas- The Allen Americans, in conjunction with the Texas Brahmas and the Central Hockey League, have announced that tonight's game between the two clubs will be rescheduled due to weather.
The game, originally scheduled to take place at 7:30 PM tonight at the Allen Event Center, will be rescheduled for a later date.
All major school districts in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are closed again today with the major snowfall in the area overnight into this morning.
"Our principal concern is the overall safety of the players and fans of both teams, as well as the safety of our staff," Americans President Matt Canavan said. "While rescheduling a game is certainly not something we enjoy having to do, both organizations felt like it was the right thing to do in this case."
The Americans will honor any ticket from the rescheduled game on the make-up date. If fans cannot make it to the rescheduled game, the option will be available to exchange tickets for any remaining 2010-11 regular season home game.
"The weather this week in many areas of the country has certainly created some obstacles and made travel difficult on several teams," said Duane Lewis, CHL Commissioner. "But the safety of our fans, players and staffs is paramount and it is in everyone's best interest to postpone this game."
The Americans will skate Saturday night at NYTEX Sports Centre against the Texas Brahmas, with puck drop slated for 7:30 PM.
The Americans will return home to the Allen Event Center Tuesday, February 8th for a home date with the Tulsa Oilers. Tickets are available on www.allenamericans.com, at the Allen Event Center Box Office, or by calling 972-912-1000.
