After practicing Tuesday morning at the Cox Convention Center, Oklahoma City Barons coach Todd Nelson and the team spent the afternoon building the framework for a home at Epperly Heights in Del City as part of the team's annual Habitat for Humanity project.

“It's an opportunity for us as an organization to give back to the community,” Nelson said. “I enjoy it because it's an opportunity for us as a team to do something for a great cause away from the rink. We pound some nails in and put up some walls.”

This is the fourth consecutive year the Barons have helped build a house. Office staff members worked on the project Tuesday morning. Players and coaches worked during the afternoon. The team will return in approximately six weeks to paint the house.

“Our guys really enjoy it,” said Barons general manager Bill Scott. “For us it's also a good team building experience. It's amazing how organized that organization is. They make it easy for us. It's like color by number. It's incredible what they do. What a great cause.”
