Chicago Blackhawks (@NHLBlackhawks) September 16, 2021

The Blackhawks selected Allan with the final pick of the first round (32nd overall) which was part of the massive trade that sent Adam Boqvist to the Columbus Blue Jackets and brought Seth Jones to Chicago. Allan was part of Team Canada’s gold medal win during the 2021 U18 World Juniors, tallying a goal and in assist in seven games.

His 2020-21 hockey season was spent with the Prince Albert Raiders in the WHL, where Allan played in 16 regular-season games with one goal and one assist. It was a pandemic-shortened season, though. In ‘19-20, Allan played in 58 games for the Raiders with two goals and six assists.

Allan will be one of 24 Blackhawks prospects who head to Minnesota this weekend for the 2021 Tom Kurvers Prospect Showcase. Here is the full lineup, per the Blackhawks website:

Forwards (14)

Andrei Altybarmakian, Evan Barratt. D.J. Busdeker, Colton Dach, Carson Gicewicz, Mike Hardman, Kale Howarth, Jalen Luypen, Dmitri Osipov, Jakub Pour, Lukas Reichel, Josiah Slavin, Michal Teply, Chad Yetman

Defensemen (7)

Allan, Louis Crevier, Ethan del Mastro, Jakub Galvas, Michael Krutil, Isaak Phillips, Alec Regula

Goalies (3)

Tom Aubrun, Cale Morris, Arvid Soderblom

All games from the tournament will be streamed on the Minnesota Wild’s YouTube channel.
