Toni Rajala signs with HC Ugra (KHL)

Today it was announced that HC Ugra Khanty-Mansiysk (KHL) has signed former OKC Barons and Oilers forward Toni Rajala to a 3-year contract.

Making Ice for the 2013-14 OKC Barons Season.

If you know me at all, you know that I love the nuts and bolts of hockey — everything about it, from how pucks are made, skate blade details, goaltender masks to equipment design. All of it fascinates me! And this week I was able to satisfy a missing piece to my hockey quest – I watched the process of making ice for a hockey rink. And what fun!
