Oilers Get Wide AHL ExposureSeptember 24, 2010 - Central Hockey League (CHL) Tulsa Oilers
Eight players who are expected to be at the Oilers training camp, which opens October 4th, will be attending AHL camps as well.
"Even though we have an affiliation with Lake Erie (AHL) and Colorado (NHL) our players are free to attend any camp, unless they are under contract to Colorado or Lake Erie," Oilers coach Bruce Ramsay explained. "The interest we're seeing in the guys we have coming to camp says a lot about the type of players we are going to have here with the Oilers."
There are four AHL teams that will be taking a look at eight players the Oilers have signed for training camp. The Lake Erie Monsters have invited forward Jason Weeks; the Grand Rapids Griffins will observe forward Gary Steffes; the Chicago Wolves have invited forward Chad Costello; and the Oklahoma City Barons will give tryouts to forwards Chris Cloud, Dan Riedel, Matt Robertson and defensemen Brennan Barker and Sean Erickson.
The Oilers had the second highest point total increase in the CHL last season under Ramsay, who was in his first season with the Oilers. They will have 33 home games at the BOK Center in the 2010-11 season, starting on Friday October 15th against the Wichita.
Season tickets for 2010-11 with plans for as low as $26 a month are now available by calling the Oilers office at 918-632-PUCK (7825).
