With the release of Alex Lavoie from his PTO, and Barons coach Todd Nelson mentioning more new additions in the next 24 hours, it seems that Kellen and Connor Jones are headed to Oklahoma City. The twins, whom recently completed seasons with Quinnipiac where they were huge parts of one of the most successful collegiate programs in the states, will join the already announced prospects on the Oilers farm.
Playing on the same line with CHN’s Rookie of the Year, Sam Anas, the twins had a combined 80 points in 40 games played. Their four year combined totals are nearly 260 points, and thus one of the most successful duos in recent collegiate hockey memory.
The ongoing sentiment is that Kellen, whom was drafted by the Oilers in 2010, garnishes a ton of success from playing alongside his undrafted brother, Connor. For the Oilers to sign a duo like this is relatively smart. No word on contract, but it appears they’ve signed with the Oilers, but being re-assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons. They are en route as we speak.
Again the lineup in OKC shifts quite a bit, and Todd Nelson has a chance to welcome offensive players with some promise. Things are exciting! Jump on the bandwagon.
