Edmonton Oilers Send Five To Oklahoma City

Edmonton Oilers Send Five To Oklahoma City

With Oklahoma City Barons AHL training camp beginning today, and its NHL counter-part inching ever so close to the beginning of the season, the Edmonton Oilers have cut five players from their current roster. Those players will report to OKC as soon as possible.

The list is unsurprising in some regards, save perhaps Martin Gernat, and it features players that will ice predominantly minor league minutes for the remainder of the season. This is good news if you’re an Oklahoma City Barons fan because your roster takes a more shapely form. If you’re an Oilers fan perhaps you are discouraged by a few things. Just an FYI, you can indeed be a fan of both teams. Just don’t hurt yourself in your endeavor.

Barons Camp, Season 5, Starts Today

Barons Camp, Season 5, Starts Today

Pitch your tent. Unroll you pack. Head to the mess hall. Camp is here! Today the Oklahoma City Barons kick-off the 2014-15 season with training camp in Bricktown starting at 10:00am. The roster is thin, more likely in the rotation by tomorrow and Wednesday, but the excitement isn’t lessened knowing that ECHL/CHL/AHL players make up the majority of the on-ice fellas. This, after all, is the “guts” of your roster. The players most likely to back-fill when needed, and if history repeats itself those players will be huge in the Coach Nelson well-oiled machine come mid-January.

More than anything it is nice to have pro hockey back for another season, and the encouraging face of one Todd Nelson and crew. But along with the familiar comes a dose of the new, both in the coaching rotation and the on-ice performers. Tony Borgford has made the shift from a lengthy career doing work with the Thrashers/Jets organization, and will be highly visible for most of training camp. No Bill Scott watching high in the Cox Center this season, instead the coaching staff will be called upon to judge the right-standing of the players. This is a bit of a new twist to a familiar tale, one of great success in four previous seasons. I think things will be fine especially when you know your coaching staff can get the job done, as they say.

Ty Rimmer Assigned To The Oklahoma City Barons

Ty Rimmer Assigned To The Oklahoma City Barons

Ty Rimmer was certainly tested last night against the Winnipeg Jets, but it certainly wasn’t often. The goaltender has been assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons.

He stayed longer than expected (which has happened before), and will now join Tyler Bunz and Franks Tuohimaa when Barons training camp begins on Monday (team likely to report by Sat/Sun). And the assignment is interesting for a couple of reasons, but mainly because Rimmer continues to be just a bit of a mystery.

If I Could Design The Barons Fifth Anniversary Patch…

If I Could Design The Barons Fifth Anniversary Patch…

The 2014-15 AHL season begins very soon, and with it comes a bit of nostalgia for fans in Oklahoma City. When the puck drops in October it will be the fifth season of top-tier minor league hockey for the OKC Barons, and with it a sense of an awesome accomplishment in such a short time.

To honor the occasion, I’ve designed my own Fifth Anniversary patch. No word yet if the team has created their own, but above you can see what I would do if I was designing one.
