Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jeff Allan
Jeff Allan was selected 95th overall in the 1977 NHL Entry Draft by the Cleveland Barons. His junior career, which saw stops in Cornwall, Peterborough and Hull would foreshadow his professional career which would keep Allan on the move from team to team.

In his first year as a professional in 1977-78, Allan would play for five different teams in five different leagues. Though injuries and franchises folding around him threatened to derail his NHL dream, Allan continued to persevere. Eventually, Allan ended up with Cleveland's IHL affiliate in Toledo, where he played a big role in the club's Turner Cup championship.

Allan entered the off-season with high hopes that the following year he would stick with Cleveland of the NHL, but those hopes were dashed with news that the Barons had folded and merged with the Minnesota North Stars. Because of a knee injury, the Minnesota front office asked Allan to attend training camp without a contract, but when Allan refused and asked for a trade, the North Stars were unwilling to accommodate, leaving the defenseman in limbo.

In 1979, Allan retired from professional hockey, began working to attain his electrical technologist degree and started a new career at Ontario Hydro.
