Tend The Farm ~ From the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma comes Tend The Farm, where the little seedlings called Barons one day hope to blossom into full time Oilers -- one season at a time. Oh, and, farming the Oilers ain't easy.

OKC Barons 2014-15 Estimated Time-On-Ice

OKC Barons 2014-15 Estimated Time-On-Ice

With advanced stats a rare find in the minor leagues of American pro hockey, I’ve been working to add what I can to that realm. One of the most interesting stats is Time-On-Ice, in an effort to better see how many prospects are being used during their time in the American Hockey League. The Oklahoma City Barons saw quite a few promising prospects in their five years of playing before moving to Bakersfield, California, and it’s always fun to see how and where a lot of these guys were played.

A lot of the work on estimating TOI was started by Iain Fyffe and I’m happy to continue it. There’s a lot of great insight into the Barons 2014-15 on-ice stats from Lowetide, so be sure to check that out as well. Here, I’ll provide the actual Estimated TOI numbers for the Barons from last season.

The New AHL Schedule Format, and Things To Consider

The New AHL Schedule Format, and Things To Consider

You’ve most likely heard or seen about it by now, but just in case you haven’t, the rumors became truth in regards to the unbalanced schedule in the American Hockey League next season. Yes, I know I’m a week behind, but hey, I just got married. That’s a good excuse, right?

So anyway, we now know that the five California-based teams (Bakersfield, San Diego, San Jose, Stockton, Ontario) will play 68 games next season, while the remaining 25 AHL teams will play 76 games. We already knew that the California-based teams will be in the same division as the Texas-based teams, making it even a little bit more odd in that teams in the same division will be playing a different standard of games.

An Open Letter To The Arizona Coyotes, From OKC

An Open Letter To The Arizona Coyotes, From OKC

Hello Arizona Coyotes! My name is Eric Rodgers, and I wanted to reach out to your organization, in the event that the city council meeting with the City of Glendale happens to result in them kicking your team – their one and only main tenant – out of their arena. As much of a silly idea that they would do this, I want you and your team to know that there is another city that is full of hockey fans that would welcome your team with open arms, and that is right here in Oklahoma City.

Located just 14 hours east of your current building, Oklahoma City is a bright and vibrant city that, wouldn’t you know it, is now open to receiving a new hockey team. You see, our previous professional hockey team just left us for the west coast and we’re kind of sad at the fact that we won’t have any professional hockey this coming season. But that’s where you come in!
