OKC Barons' Andrew Miller scores first professional goal

by Michael Baldwin Published: October 15, 2013

“Richard was great tonight,” said Barons coach Todd Nelson. “The glove save he made in the second period was tremendous. He gives us a chance to win every night. ... I'm sure he's making people think.”

The Oilers hope No. 1 goaltender Devan Dubnyk (5.43 GAA, .829 save percentage) will end an early season slump. If Bachman is promoted. the Oilers might keep three goalies for a brief time, including 33-year-old Jason LaBarbera (3.22 GAA, .871 save percentage) who signed a $1 million deal.


Center Mark Arcobello, the Barons all-time leading scorer, is taking advantage of his opportunity with Edmonton. Arcobello recorded his sixth assist in the Oilers' 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Through seven games, Arcobello is tied for the Oilers' team scoring lead (six points) with Taylor Hall and David Perron. ... The Barons have signed center Joel Broda to a PTO (professional tryout offer). Broda, 23, who played last season with the Houston Aeros, opened the season with Bakersfield, Edmonton's Double-A affiliate in the ECHL. ... The Barons still haven't selected a captain. The assistant captains Tuesday night were Anthon Lander, Derek Nesbitt and Ben Eager.
