After a year with his hometown Lethbridge, Alberta's Hurricanes, Allan Egeland began a successful three- year association with the Tacoma Rockets in which he was twice named an All-Star. The Tampa Bay Lightning selected Egeland in the third round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, and by the 1994-95 season he had turned pro with their IHL affiliate in Atlanta.
With the Atlanta Knights Egeland scored eight goals and 24 points in 60 games. During his second year with the Knights, he elevated his game, registering 22 goals and 22 assists and impressing the big club enough to earn a five-game stay with the Lightning.
The next season, 1996-97, Egeland got into four more contests with the 'Bolts and produced at almost a point-a-game in the minors. The following year, the same trend continued, Egeland was producing well in the minors, earned an eight-game call up with the Lightning but was unable to register a point in the NHL.
Egeland signed with the Calgary Flames as a free agent but was unable to crack their NHL roster, spending his season in the IHL and AHL instead. The Flames dealt Egeland to the Los Angeles Kings on February 18, 2000, but again Egeland was unable to return to the NHL level.
Egeland spent ten games with the IHL's Cleveland Lumberjacks in the 2000-01, but the bulk of his year he played in the East Coast Hockey League, suiting up for the Pensacola Ice Pilots where he scored 60 points in 59 games. The 2000-01 season Egeland remained in the ECHL, taking his services to the Cincinnati Cyclones.
