“My sister just moved back to Canada from Australia,” Fedun said. “This is the first opportunity she's had to watch me play here. At the end of the night it would have been nice to have had the two (standings) points for the team, but it's hard not to be happy when you chip in offensively.”


Goaltender Niko Hovinen hasn't posted eye-popping stats since he joined the Barons, but he's been tagged with only one regulation loss in seven starts. Hovinen recorded 34 saves Friday night in a game OKC was outshot 37-15.
