Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Allan Tuer
Defenseman Allan Tuer played for nine different teams in a professional career that spanned as many years. Tuer, who played his Junior in Regina with the Pats was a late draft pick of the Los Angeles Kings and after apprenticing in their minor league system for two years made his NHL debut in 1985.

Tuer, and extremely tough, physical blue line presence played 45 games for the Kings and registered just one point in that time.

When his contract expired he signed a deal with the Edmonton Oilers, but never got a chance to play for them. His first season was spent entirely in the minors on the eve of his second campaign in the Oiler organization he was claimed by the Minnesota North Stars in the waiver draft.

The North Stars gave Tuer a short look with the big club that year. In 6 games he brought tough physical play and also scored his only NHL goal.

That off-season Tuer inked a free agent deal with the Hartford Whalers. He played just six games with them over the next two campaigns. They would be the last games Tuer would play in the big leagues.

The final three seasons of his career were spent in minor pro. After playing for San Diego, New Haven,
Cincinnati and Cleveland, Allan Tuer retired from the game.
