Getting Comfy With Your Oklahoma City Barons In 2012-13


While the NHL owners and players try to find 1.74 billion dollars to get the season started on time, now’s as good a time as any to quickly run through some info on Edmonton’s AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City.

The AHL released their schedule for the 2012-13 season a few days ago, and you can view the OKC Barons’ calendar by clicking here. The Barons are slated to play a back-to-back opener in Lake Erie starting on the 12th of October. Their home-opener will be one week later on the 19th against San Antonio.

The Barons play Calgary’s affiliate in Abbotsford on November 9th and 10th.  It’s only a twelve hour drive from Edmonton.  Grab a cooler and some gas money. If you’re inclined to catch a flight to see the Barons in OKC, they play Abbotsford at the Cox Convention Center on April 19th and 20th.

Maybe a game or two will find the way to Rexall Place.

It could happen.

Like to catch all the Barons games on the web?  It’s possible.  The AHL offers a feature that’s similar to the NHL’s GameCenter (where you can view all of the Barons home and away games via the AHL website) called AHL Live.

Should the NHL season be delayed (or cancelled altogether), you can expect to see an increase in AHL coverage at Oil On Whyte.  Originally, I thought that this package cost $600 to view, and that was wrong. Turns out you can download any AHL game from 2011-12 for just under $600. I’m not quite sure why you’d want to do that, but the option is available. I’m hoping the 2012-13 live version is available for roughly half that amount (and maybe less. Hint, hint).

In the meantime, we’re still looking for a couple billion dollars to get this NHL rocket ship off the ground.
