OKC defenseman Alex Plante was assessed a five-minute major, game-misconduct for boarding on the play. Beck, injured behind the Barons goal, was unconscious for a couple of minutes. Before he left the ice, Beck was talking and moving his extremities.
“He was cut pretty bad above the eye and was bleeding quite a bit,” said OKC goaltender Yann Danis. “I think he was out for a bit. But he was awake when they left. He was moving fine. He was aware of what was going on.”
Plante stood nearby and watched medical personnel attend to Beck before leaving for the locker room.
FEDUN'S FIRST CAREER GOAL
Barons rookie defenseman Taylor Fedun scored his first professional goal late in the second period on a shot from just inside the blue line that glanced off the right pipe.
“It's only 13 games into the season. But since I didn't play last year it seems like such a long time since I've put the puck in the net,” Fedun said. “It was a really good feeling to see our guys' arms go up in front of the net.”
