PELSS INELIGIBLE UNTIL JAN. 11
AHL officials announced Barons left winger Kristians Pelss will be ineligible until Oklahoma City plays Charlotte on Jan. 11. Pelss was suspended 21 games for a Dec. 1 slashing incident with Stockton in the ECHL, a suspension the AHL will uphold.
Barons backup goaltender Olivier Roy stopped 30 shots but dropped to 2-4. ... Fans are encouraged to bring a new or gently loved stuffed animal to Saturday's game. ... Peoria goaltender Jake Allen got a rare assist on the Rivermen's second goal. Allen started a breakout with a long pass that ended with a T.J. Hensick goal.
