Prince Albert is becoming a hotbed for big, physical defenders in recent years, and Allan is a part of the future for that group. He is a safety valve type of player who provides a mobile and physical presence in the neutral zone and as the last man back. He maintains an athletic posture and shows excellent strength through his stride, in both straight lines and crossovers. When he’s playing at his best he does an excellent job of mucking up the flow of the oppositions game. He’s got a strong physical edge to his game, and can be aggressive in angling opponents in the neutral zone prior to zone entries and denying routes to the net. There are very few weaknesses in his defensive game. He is sound in his positioning and an excellent shot blocker. He can, however, be a bit slow in adjusting to bad bounces, and you can see the wheels turning while he figures out where he should move or who he should cover. While his defensive game is robust and advanced, he is much more limited in transition and the offensive zone. He is not devoid of awareness or ability, however, it is clearly not the focus of his game. He isn’t a liability with possession, but there is nothing advanced in his up-ice scanning, and his puck movement is pretty pedestrian. He possesses very little creativity, and he looks to move the puck as quickly as possible, as opposed to using his feet to create time, space, and new passing lanes. He holds the offensive blue line well, but he doesn’t probe deep too often. He’s an opportunistic shooter who doesn’t go looking to make a play inside the offensive zone unless the right lane is there. Very few deceptive elements to how he sets passes, shots and dekes. As a fairly one-dimensional player at this point, Allan’s ceiling is certainly limited, but he has a lot of value as his defensive game should translate very well to the pro level.
