The Edmonton Oilers assigned seven players to the Oklahoma City Barons, General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today. Included were forwards Andrew Miller and Ryan Martindale; defensemen Martin Marincin, Oscar Klefbom and Brad Hunt, as well as goaltender Ty Rimmer.  Richard Bachman was placed on waivers for the purpose of assignment to OKC.

Martindale and Marincin were key components in the Barons run to the Western Conference Finals. Miller played on Yale’s national championship team last season and was a teammate of Mark Arcobello. Klefbom (1st round/19th 
overall in 2011 NHL Draft) is an Oilers draft pick. Hunt and Bachman were signed by the Oilers in the off season.  Rimmer was invited to the Oilers camp after playing three full seasons in the Western Hockey League.
