The Hockey Hall of Fame and its members are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Honoured Member Keith Allen.
Following a playing career spent predominantly at the minor league level, Keith Allen would become playing coach of the Brandon Regals of the WHL in 1955. After a decade with the Regals, Allen was named the first coach of the expansion Philadelphia Flyers. He would spend two years behind the Flyers' bench before moving upstairs to become the club's general manager. In this role Allen would cement his legacy. He helped build the violent, controversial, but ultimately successful Broad Street Bullies, winners of back-to-back Stanley Cup titles in 1974 and 1975.
For his lifetime in hockey, Allen was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the Builder Category in 1992.
The Hockey Hall of Fame would like to extend sincere condolences to Mr. Allen's family.
