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.

14 Games In, OKC Barons On-Ice Stats

14 Games In, OKC Barons On-Ice Stats

In today’s world of advanced stats in hockey, there’s not a lot to be had in the American Hockey League. I’m working to change that. Here’s a look at the Oklahoma City Barons on-ice stats through 14 games. Keeping with the sample size from before (we’ll up it eventually as the season progresses), I only included players that have played five or more games so far.

Check out the chart after the jump!

Workin’ For The Weekend: Planes To Iowa “Pictures Of You”

Workin’ For The Weekend: Planes To Iowa “Pictures Of You”

Sometime soon I hope to take a trip to a cabin, preferably in a countryside not too far from here where a fire crackles nightly, and long walks through wooded areas seem like heaven on earth. I’ll probably bring my warm Coleman boots, my Cannon DSLR (which I still have no idea what I’m doing with), my North Face hat and gloves, my high-tech-super-fancy base layer, and most importantly my earbuds.

Between my ears my synapses will be thumping to one of the greatest mood albums of the 1980’s, The Cure’s Disintegration.

It’s awfully dark album to be so good, but it teeters on the verge of accessibility enough that it feels comfortable and recognizable. I’ve always enjoyed The Cure, not necessarily for their artistic, dour value, but because they made some really nice, and surprisingly beautiful music.

Luke Gazdic Recalled To Edmonton

Luke Gazdic Recalled To Edmonton

With his fourteen allotted days for a conditioning stint nearing a close, Luke Gazdic has been recalled by the Edmonton Oilers.

After playing this morning in the annual school day game in OKC where Gazdic scored a second period goal to tie the game, he will make his way back to the NHL squad where he will likely resume his role of Mr. Grititude. I sort of say that jokingly, but there is no denying why the Oilers like him so much (and likely why fans hate him), and it centers on his intangibles outside of putting the puck in the net or keeping opposing forwards at bay.

Oklahoma City Loses To San Antonio Again (And With Children Present)

Oklahoma City Loses To San Antonio Again (And With Children Present)

After a two-goal loss on Sunday to the San Antonio Rampage, the Oklahoma City Barons hosted a them in return for a 10:35am puck drop on Tuesday morning. As I mentioned in the pregame comments, this is a game each year that sort of separates the men from the boys in terms of preparedness. Veterans seemingly don’t struggle, but youthful prospects do, and perhaps it nudges the latter group to re-configure their night-before rituals. Regardless, it is always a feisty game, in front of the children no less.
