TULSA, OK - The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League's St. Louis Blues, announced Wednesday the trading of forward Alex Kromm to the Toledo Walleye in exchange for future considerations.
Kromm, 27, enters the year coming off a career-best season, registering career highs in goals (8), assists (12), points (24), PIM (90), games played (62) and plus-minus (12).
The 5'11, 185 lbs. forward finished second in PIM earned in an Oilers' sweater last season, and he appeared in six postseason games for the team before suffering an injury.

The Penticton, BC native played collegiately at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, compiling 48 points (19G, 29A) in 111 games for the Pointers. Kromm capped off his college career with a Division 3 National Championship in his senior season.
