I finally made it down to the Cox Center to see some Barons hockey. All week,the team has been holding it’s “try-outs” and camp. Thursday night, the Blue vs White scrimmage game was held. Most of the players, who the fans saw last night will be your new Oklahoma City Barons hockey team. The roster will not be official or complete til more than likely by next Wed. The parent team to the Barons,the Edmonton Oilers, will have their last pre-season game on Sunday. After that game will be when final cuts will be made and the Oilers roster completed before the season starts for them on the 7th. Those cut players are more than likely going to be sent to Oklahoma City for the Barons to whip into shape.
The Blue team pulled off the 6-4 victory in a pretty active game played in front of roughly 2,000 fans. Dave Bonk,of the Allen Americans of the CHL,scored two of those goals for team Blue.
