"While prospects like Morgan Frost and Carter Hart have been getting much of the attention this season in the CHL, Wade Allison has had a great year in the NCAA with Western Michigan University.
Allison, drafted by the Flyers in the second-round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, has 15 goals and 15 assists in 22 games. His 30 points was good enough for sixth in the NCAA and he is just five points out of the top spot.
However, Allison will not get a chance to win an NCAA scoring title this year. The 6'2, 205-pound winger left the Broncos January 13th game with an undisclosed lower-body injury. Today Western Michigan announced that the injury will keep Allison out for the rest of the season.
Allison was just announced as a nominee for the Hobey Baker Award earlier this week, which is given out to the best player in college hockey. There was some talk that the Flyers might sign the 20-year-old to an entry-level contract this offseason, so it will be interesting to see if this injury changes those plans.
Due to a lower body injury, Wade Allison will be out of for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.
