Barons Lose To Marlies, Lose Fifth Straight

Barons Lose To Marlies, Lose Fifth Straight

The Oklahoma City Barons, and their wispy lineup, came to Toronto for a day-game somewhat ready to battle the Marlies. Historically speaking, Ricoh Coliseum is brutal for OKC, and the day would start rather comely, but end in an eerily familiar demise.

The Barons would lose their fifth straight, giving away two straight goals in the third, to be overtaken by the Toronto Marlies 3-2.

Barons Call Upon Beasts To Play In The East

Barons Call Upon Beasts To Play In The East

That headline was hammy, and framed around both a silly name for hockey team (which I love) in the ECHL (Brampton Beast) as well as the upcoming road destination of the Barons (Toronto). Hammy or not (I prefer beef), the OKC Barons have slid bass ackwards into a problematic situation. Injuries forced the team to barely have enough healthy forwards on Sunday night, and the injury status of defender, Martin Gernat, is now labeled “season ending”. Yet the Barons solider on.

As reported via this site yesterday, the OKC Barons have signed Jackson Houck (now official) to an ATO. They’ve also called upon the services of three players from the Brampton Beast of the ECHL – David Ling, Brett Lyon, and Jason Pitton.

Ryan Hamilton Clears Waivers, Jackson Houck “Allegedly” Headed To OKC

Ryan Hamilton Clears Waivers, Jackson Houck “Allegedly” Headed To OKC

Two important cogs in the Barons machine over the next couple of weeks will likely be Ryan Hamilton and Jackson Houck. Hamilton, having played minutes recently with the Oilers, will head back to OKC while Andrew Miller tarries a bit longer in Oil Country. Likewise, Jackson Houck, an Oilers draftee two years ago, is allegedly signing an ATO to play with the Barons.

Barons Lose Thrice, Injuries To Blame

Barons Lose Thrice, Injuries To Blame

It’s Monday. That phrase, in and of itself, will bring you to your knees. The bellows of the weekend seem like a faint whisper in the distance, and you can tell by the size of my Starbucks flat white this morning that the start of the work week is throttling my every sense.

I’ve queued up my favorite tracks by Tralmpled by Turtles, I’ve blown my nose twice (thanks elm trees, you scabs), and I’ve begun to reminisce about the weekend that was Barons hockey at the incomparable Cox Center.

The back-end of a seven game homestand is supposed to be fun, fan-fueled, and foxy. Instead it was feeble, fragile, and just plain frowzy. Three games in three days is tough, but is usually manageable at home (your own bed, your own shower, your own food, your own XBOX). Yet the Oklahoma City Barons have been bit by the injury bug, nay they’ve been doctored on using those grabby tweezers in the game ‘Operation’. Yet Jujhar Khaira has actually injured his real elbow, and not his “funny bone”, and poor Akim Alium only wishes he had butterflies in his stomach and not a concussion-like situation.

Jujhar Khaira Out For Remainder of Season, Mele Signed

Jujhar Khaira Out For Remainder of Season, Mele Signed

Photo by Steven Christy. Any new elbows I can buy with these quarters? Jujhar Khaira was banged up on a random play in the corners of the ice about two weeks ago to the day. That injury has apparently been elevated from day-to-day to season-ending….

Andrew Miller Recalled, Plays First Pro Game With Oilers

Andrew Miller Recalled, Plays First Pro Game With Oilers

Andrew Miller, the bastion of goodness for the Oklahoma City Barons at times, was recalled by the Edmonton Oilers after a downright sluggish performance against the Milwaukee Admirals. 56 points in 53 minor league games for Miller is quite the achievement for a guy that graduated from Yale in 2013, and has played just a scratch over 100 pro games. Nonetheless, he’s been good, and Oilers GM Craigh MacTavish has always been fond of this kid.

Last night, wearing an Oilers uniform, he had a couple of good chances, and the team seemingly dominated the Columbus Blue Jackets in the third period (until they didn’t). Despite a shootout loss, Andrew Miller was able to play 10:05, take four shots, and not look entirely awful.
