The Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League added two players to the roster Monday, defenseman Ryan Lowery and forward Cameron Abney from its Double-A affiliate, the Stockton Thunder.
Both players have split time this season between Oklahoma City and Stockton. Lowery has 14 points in 48 games this season; Abney, a 6-foot-5, 205-pounder, will bring another physical presence to the Barons' lineup. Abney has five points and 141 penalty minutes in 52 games.
Lowery will give the Barons a little security on the defensive end with Taylor Chorney suffering an undisclosed injury during Sunday's 4-1 loss to Grand Rapids in the Cox Center.
Oklahoma City (41-18-9) has a two-game road trip this weekend, beginning 7 p.m. Friday at Milwaukee (33-27-5). The Barons visit Grand Rapids (30-26-10) at 6 p.m. Saturday.
