Center Mark Arcobello, the Barons' all-time leading scorer who played the past three seasons in Oklahoma City, was “recalled” by Edmonton on Saturday 24 hours after he was “reassigned” to its AHL affiliate.

The third leading scorer on the Oilers with 12 points, Arcobello was told by Edmonton management to “get a home,” an indication the 25-year-old NHL rookie will stick with the Oilers all season.

“Everyone here is really proud,” said Barons coach Todd Nelson. “He's a great story. Everyone knows how big he is (5-foot-8), but he always finishes his checks and plays the game the right way.”


The Barons have made 55 player transactions the first six weeks of the season. The Edmonton Oilers' Triple-A affiliate had 95 transactions in its inaugural season in Oklahoma City. The past two seasons the Barons have had 118 and 96 roster moves. Eleven players have appeared for both the Barons and Oilers this season.


The Barons begin a four-game road trip Tuesday afternoon in San Antonio, followed by a two-game trip to Lake Erie (Cleveland) Thursday and Friday. OKC plays in San Antonio again on Nov. 29 before returning home to host the Rampage Nov. 30 at the Cox Convention Center.
