Barons Begin Preseason Play Tonight In Cedar Park

Welcome back to American League Hockey games, Oklahoma City Barons fans! What better way to welcome the new season by playing the defending champs, the sturdy Texas Stars. Indeed, the preseason games have arrived, and the Barons will play two games in two nights at two different destinations. First up, a trip to Cedar Park, Texas.

With a 31 man roster there is a chance that everyone on the camp invite list gets to play. No cuts have been announced by the Barons, thus we probably get two very different rosters on the two nights of play.

For Texas there are a lot of familiar faces to be seen as well as some new ones. Recently assigned players include Curtis McKenzie and Brendan Ranford.

The game starts at 7pm tonight, and can be heard via 96.1 KXXY locally or via the iHeart radio app.

Here is the available players for the Oklahoma City Barons

The Edmonton Oilers announced today that goaltender Laurent Brossoit and David Musil have both been assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons. This is good news for the Barons as they amp up their lineup in anticipation of back-to-back preseason games in Texas.

Defensively speaking David Musil looks very similar to the player we watched in the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs last season. Strong, poised, and increasingly head strong – Musil has put together a pretty good calendar year, and the Oilers thought so as well. I’m not sure I’d slot him above Gernat or Oesterle, but he certainly is improving quickly. Good things.

Laurent Brossoit is shaping up to be a nice goaltender. Bunz has the feet. Rimmer and Tuohimaa the gloves and dynamics. Then there’s Brossoit who is probably a combination of the others. The competition between those three should be fierce, but you get the overwhelming feeling that the placement decision has already been made.

Oklahoma City Barons camp now has 31 listed as active on their roster.

More cuts to come, keep your eyes peeled.
