Barons goaltender Olivier Roy, who recently won back-to-back road games against San Antonio, has been assigned to Stockton in the ECHL by the Edmonton Oilers.

Roy is 9-9-1 with a 2.77 goals against average and 90.2 saves percentage in 22 games with the Barons. A 21-year-old second-year pro, Roy also was 3-1-1 with a 1.23 GAA in an earlier stint with Stockton.

The Barons had an a third goaltender on the roster when Edmonton returned veteran Yann Danis to Oklahoma City after Oilers veteran Nikolai Khabibulin was activated off the injury list.

Oklahoma City’s other goaltender is Niko Hovinen, who the Oilers picked up off waivers earlier this season. Hovinen, age 24, is 4-4-2 with a 3.40 goals against average with the Barons.

The Barons return to action Tuesday night when they host Rochester at the Cox Convention Center at 7.
