Happy Birthday to #5, Mr. Bryan Allen. The Florida Panthers former defenseman joined the Canes crew last February and squeezed in 19 games before the season ended. The Kingston, ON native had 5 helpers, 19 PIM, and was (+4) with the Canes in 2010-11. He claimed 4 goals, 13 assists, and 82 PIM collectively last season.
Originally, he was drafted by Vancouver in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft (1st Round, 4th Overall). The 31-year-old checks in at 6’5” and 225 pounds. He won silver with Team Canada in the 1999 World Juniors.
