Allen celebrates it’s first family: The Ludwigs
The Allen Americans have signed Trevor Ludwig to a ceremonial one day contract so he can retire as a member of the Allen Americans during a ceremony honoring the Ludwig family.  Trevor Ludwig, who played the majority of his professional career with the Americans and winning three championships in Allen, signed the one-day deal earlier  so he could officially retire as a member of the club where he had his greatest success.   Ludwig had brief stops in both Missouri (Kansas City) and Orlando. Trevor will join twin brother Tyler, and father Craig, for a special ceremony.
The Ludwigs, Craig, Tyler and Trevor were all an important part of the early success of the Allen Americans organization. Craig Ludwig, who won two Stanley Cup titles over his long and successful career, raised a cup in Montreal in 1986 and in Dallas in 1999. He was a minority owner of the Americans during the 2012-2013 season, that saw Allen win its first Presidents’ Cup Championship, defeating the Wichita Thunder in seven games. Trevor Ludwig, son of Craig and twin brother of Tyler, joined the Americans during the 2011-2012 season. Trevor was a tough stay-at-home defenseman who played the game much like his father, blocking shots and clearing out the front of the net won three championships with Allen, starting with two Central Hockey League titles in 2013 and 2014 and then a Kelly Cup Championship in 2015.
