Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Peter Allen
A promising career gone awry marked Allen's early years in pro hockey. He played four years at Yale University, but only Boston expressed any interest in him and only then via the Supplemental Draft, in 1991.

After graduating from Yale two years later, Allen began a tour of duty that took him to many cities and countries, mostly outside the NHL. His contract with Boston elapsed and he was a free agent signing first by Pittsburgh and later by San Jose, in 1997, He spent all of 1994-95 with Canada's National team and finished the year winning a bronze medal for his country at the World Championships under coach Tom Renney.

The next year he spent mostly in the IHL, though the Penguins called him up for eight games. Four more years of the minors convinced him to re-join the national team, and he again played at the Worlds, in 2000, where Canada placed fourth.
