Shocker: Darryl "Booter" Bootland Leaving Allen for ECHL

Two time CHL Champion Moves To ECHL

Had a conversation with Booter Bootland this afternoon and he confirmed he has come to terms with a team in the ECHL and will be leaving Allen. A sad day for sure for Allen fans as he will be missed not only for all he has done on the ice but what he has done off the ice. Booter will leave as one of the most popular players in franchise history.

Booter asked me to share the following with all of his fans in Allen.

"I want to thank all Allen American's fans, the last two years were amazing! Sarah, Trace, Havyn and I are sad to leave. You treated us as family from day one. I would like to thank Matt Canavan and the rest of the staff as I learned a lot off the ice working in the front office. I also want to thank all of the on ice crew for all they have done. Thanks again to everyone in Allen, you will never be forgotten and will always be in our hearts."

The beard, the mouth, the fan favorite, & two championships


  1. That is a shock! Doesn't help the depressed mood any, does it?!

  2. Barry, I think the troops are confused as Allen announced his signing in Allen on July 2nd? What went wrong?

  3. And now, Tetrault to Rapid??? Me thinks something is rotten in Denmark!
