The Edmonton Oilers re-assigned forwards Philippe Cornet, Ryan Martindale and Toni Rajala to the Barons in anticipation that Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Teemu Hartikainen and other players will join the Oilers once the NHL lockout officially ends later this week.

Cornet played in eight games earlier this season with the Barons. With Stockton, Cornet, an AHL All-Star last season, scored 24 points and is plus-8 with the Thunder. In 135 career games with the Barons, Cornet has scored 60 points.

Martindale has registered three assists in seven games with the Barons. A third round draft choice by Edmonton in 2010, Martindale has scored 22 points in 62 games with OKC and Stockton.

Rajala has registered one goal and one assist in five games with the Barons. Rajala, named an ECHL All-Star, leads Stockton in scoring with 38 points, including 18 goals.

The new-look Barons host a three-game series this weekend at the Cox Convention Center. Oklahoma City hosts Charlotte Friday and Saturday and host the Texas Stars Sunday afternoon.
