Oklahoma tornadoes: AHL, hockey group to donate ticket revenue from next OKC Barons home game to relief fund

The American Hockey League and Professional Hockey Players' Association announced all ticket revenue from Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Wednesday night will be removed from the league revenue sharing program and instead be donated to the United Way's OK Strong Disaster Relief fund.

The Barons are giving away free tickets to Game 3 Wednesday night to any fan who makes a donation to the OK Strong Disaster Relief fund.

Residents of the hardest hit areas can attend any of the three home games at no charge. Those displaced by the storm simply need to show identification with proof of residency.

For the duration of the playoffs, the Barons will wear a helmet sticker in the shape of the state of Oklahoma with the words HOME in the middle of the state.

Every penny collected for the OK Strong Disaster Relief fund stays in Oklahoma to assist with long-term medical, emotional and education needs of victims of the tornadoes.
