The Edmonton Oilers assigned defenseman Martin Marincin to the Oklahoma City Barons, Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today.

Marincin, a 6-4, 187-pounder from Kosice, Slovakia is the Oilers 2nd round draft choice (46th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He split time this season between the Prince George Cougars and Regina Pats. In 58 games between the two clubs, he recorded 40 points (11-29-40). He picked up two goals in the Pats’ first-round loss to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Prior to playing in North America, Marincin played two seasons with the Slovakian Under 20 team. In 81 games over two seasons, he recorded 32 points (13-19-32) and served 121 penalty minutes.

This the second consecutive season he has been assigned to Oklahoma City. Last season, he appeared in one game with the Barons. Marincin is eligible to play immediately in the Barons lineup.

The Barons return home to take on the Hamilton Bulldogs, AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, Tuesday. The weekend concludes with home games Friday and Saturday. Friday, the Barons tangle with the Peoria Rivermen, AHL affiliate of the St. Louis Blues. Saturday, the Chicago Wolves, AHL affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks, visit Oklahoma City. All three games start at 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center. All three games can be heard on the Barons flagship station, 96.1 KXY.
