Erick Lizon, brought in by the Oklahoma City Barons to strike fear into the hearts of AHL teams from Texas, has yet to engage in a fight. But he still manages to do his thang without ever removing his gloves. In his pre-game comments last night, Barons Coach Todd Nelson, discussed the role of Lizon with the current Barons:
His presence changes the dynamic. Having him skate in warmups and occasionally stand up on the bench is enough.
Okay then. Last night, he got a little angsty and gave us a glorious chicken wing unlike the Cox Center has seen since the mid-90’s. It’s hard to tell (because the AHL Live quality and camera work isn’t fabulous), but as he skates to the penalty box he gives a quick arm flap. I love it and hate it all at the same time. Hat tip to you, Sir Lizon.
