With the National Hockey League's trade deadline looming on Monday, Feb. 27, and the Barons' NHL parent club, the Edmonton Oilers, in 14th place in the Western Conference, rosters of both the Barons and Oilers could undergo a makeover over the next two weeks.

The Oilers already pulled the trigger on a move that affected the Barons, with forward Ryan O'Marra going to the Anaheim Ducks organization for defenseman Bryan Rodney, who played his third game Sunday with the Barons.

The Oilers figure to be much more involved at the deadline than they were even last year, when the team acquired Colten Teubert and a draft pick for Dustin Penner and traded Barons defenseman Shawn Belle for Kevin Montgomery.

Both Teubert and Montgomery have spent the majority of their time since their trades with the Barons.

THREE STARS

1. Dov Grumet-Morris, San Antonio

Became just the third goaltender to shut out the Barons this season, stopping all 22 OKC shots.

2. Michal Repik, San Antonio

Repik scored the game's lone goal 7:20 into the first.

3. Yann Danis, Barons

The Barons goaltender turned away 23 of San Antonio's 24 shots, giving up the only goal on an undefended rebound early in the game.

PENALTY SHOTS

The loss was the Barons first by a 1-0 margin. They've won a pair of 1-0 games, both this season. ... Teubert and Hunter Tremblay were among the Barons' scratches for the game. For Tremblay, it was just the second game he'd missed all season. Tremblay also sat out Nov. 3 at Abbotsford. ... The Barons have allowed 29 or fewer shots in 22 of their last 23 games.

UP NEXT

The Barons wrap up a four-game homestand at 7 p.m. Wednesday against the Texas Stars at the Cox Center. Tickets are available at the Cox Center box office.
