The Oklahoma City Barons have signed defenseman Dan Ringwald to a one-way AHL contract, General Manager Bill Scott announced today.

Ringwald, a native of Oakville, Ontario, is entering his third season as a pro.  After attending training camp with the Barons, he was assigned to the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL.  He earned his first call-up to Oklahoma City in November.

The 6-1, 185-pounder skated in 31 regular season games with the Barons last season, scoring one goal and adding six assists while also posting a +8 rating with nine penalty minutes. During Ringwald's time with the Thunder, he recorded eight points (1-7-8) in 12 games. 

Ringwald played a consistent role with the Barons during their 2012 Calder Cup playoff run.  Skating in all 14 Barons postseason games, Ringwald recorded four assists and posted a +2 rating.

Prior to turning pro, he played four seasons at the Rochester Institute of Technology where he scored 123 points (21-102-123) in 146 games and was named the NCAA Atlantic Hockey Association's Best Defenseman during his senior year. He played 61 games with the Thunder in his first professional season, recording 23 points (1-22-23).

Just 94 days remain until the Barons home opener on October 19. For a limited time, the Barons are offering an Opening Night Pack for only $30. The package includes four tickets to the Barons home opener, and four Barons t-shirts. Call 232-GOAL and ask for the Opening Night Special.
