Players to watch
OKC: Reddox and Omark have been the only two producing for the Barons. Hartikainen has been trying, but hasn't been able to put any points on the board.
HAM: Defensemen Yannick Weber(7) leads the Bulldogs with 9 points(5G, 4A) in 5 games. Center Ben Maxwell(19) is second with 8 points(3G, 5A).

After having a game on Friday night, leaving at 4 AM yesterday, catching a couple flights, and then getting stuck in traffic in Toronto, you could tell the Barons were tired. Hopefully with a little more rest, the Barons are able to get back in the groove today. The Barons get a couple nights off after today's game before they take on the Wolves on Wednesday. The game will be shown on CBC in Canada and on the NHL Network in the US. Puck drop is at 1PM EDT/Noon CDT. The game will also be broadcast on 96.1 KXY if you're unable to be by a television, or aren't able to get NHL Network or CBC (like me). If you're in the OKC area, there will be a watch party at the Buffalo Wild Wings at I-40 and Sooner Rd, which is where I will be. As always, you can follow myself(@AHLBarons) and Scott(@OilFieldHockey) as we tweet during the game.
