Good Bloodlines!

5'11", 170 lb. Fargo Force (USHL) forward Garrett Allen has committed to the University of Denver for the fall of '11.

Allen, a 3/7/92 birthdate from the Milwaukee suburb of Delafield, Wisc., played for the Milwaukee Junior Admirals midget minor squad in '07-08, then moved on to Team Illinois last year, and Fargo this season.

In 38 games to date, Allen has a 15-13-28 line, which is not bad for a first-year player in the USHL.  He's a speedster who can make plays and finish, and is also a strong penalty killer.  He's always been a little thin and physically undeveloped, but he'll have another season in the USHL to fill out before arriving in Denver.

In addition to Denver, the schools recruiting him were UNH, Wisconsin, and UNO.

Allen has good athletic bloodlines.  One of his cousins is Scott Polaski, a forward at Colorado College from '01-'05.  His aunt is former speedskater Bonnie Blair, who appeared in four Olympics, winning five gold medals.
