The Allen Americans of the Central Hockey League, in conjunction with the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey league, announced on Wednesday an affiliation agreement for the 2012-13 season

“The Allen Americans are a model franchise in the CHL,” said Jim Mill. “They have a great building and a strong ownership group that includes former NHLers Steve Duchesne, Mike Modano, Craig Ludwig and Ed Belfour. With our proximity to Allen, it makes perfect sense for us to have a few players develop within their organization.”
