Gerry Fleming, via the Oilers Now radio show, announced today that Darnell Nurse will join the Oklahoma City Barons in Utica tomorrow afternoon for the second round of the Calder Cup Playoffs.

On the heels of an OHL playoff loss at the hands of Connor McDavid and his Erie Otters, Nurse will squeeze into the top six defenders in the next week with the Oklahoma City Barons (he spent time with OKC at the end of last season as well). Where exactly will he fit in the lineup? “I’ll talk to Darnell this afternoon. We will go from there,” is all that coach Gerry Fleming would give us.

“Darnell is a great player, and we are very excited to have him. He probably wished his OHL season ended a bit differently, but we are still grateful to have him,” said Fleming.
