On Tuesday September 1st, the Allen Americans announced the signing of Canadian defensemen Ben Carroll. Carroll will return to the Americans blue line after playing two games with them in 2019-20. In the two games he played, Carroll recorded two assists which he contributed for a total of two points. He also added on two penalty minutes.
Carroll, 25-years-old, is originally a native of Sherwood Park, Alberta. He played major junior hockey with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL. There, he spanned four seasons, amassing a total of 76 points.
Following this, the left-handed shooter agreed to attend the University of Alberta. In his four years with the Golden Bears hockey program, Carroll recorded six goals along with 38 assists for 44 points. It was after his tenure in U SPORTS that Carroll would make the jump pro, signing with Allen.
At this point in his young career, Carroll is a point per game guy who has great potential to strengthen the team’s defence. He joins Allen’s current defensive corps of Cody Corbett, Nolan Kneen, Cole Fraser and Les Lancaster.
