By Josh Evans, OKC Barons

Oklahoma City Barons forward Mark Arcobello was named to the Western Conference American Hockey League All Star Team, the league’s front office announced today.

Arcobello, a 5-9, 165-pounder from Milford, Conn. has appeared in 36 games with the Barons this season, scoring 32 points (10-22-32). Arcobello is one of seven players that have played in each of the three seasons the Barons have played in the AHL. In 135 games with Oklahoma City over those three seasons, he has 97 points (38-59-97). As a pro, he has played in 168 games between Oklahoma City and the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL and scored 118 points (45-73-118).

Arcobello is no stranger to All Star Games. As a member of the Stockton Thunder, he recorded a hat trick and was named Most Valuable Player of the 2011 ECHL All Star Game in Bakersfield, Calif.

Prior to turning pro, Arcobello played four seasons at Yale. With the Bulldogs, he amassed 116 points (49-67-116) over those four seasons.

The 2013 Dunkin’ Donuts AHL All Star Classic is January 28 in Providence, Rhode Island at 6 p.m. (ct). The game will be aired on NESN and other local cable networks across the country, including FoxSports Southwest.

The Barons are in the midst of a five-game homestand. This weekend the Barons skate in back-to-back games against the San Antonio Rampage. Faceoff for both games is 7 p.m.

Friday night means $1 hot dogs and $2 draft beers from 6 – 8 p.m. Saturday, the Barons are giving away another car in the Drive Away Every Saturday promotion. One lucky fan wins a Dodge Ram Truck from John Vance Motors and the Barons.

A variety of ticket packages are available to meet every individual or group need. Packages ranging from 7-game and 11-game packs to Full Season Seats are available. Call the Barons’ front office at 405-232-4625 for information on group outings, Season Seats and other ticket packages.
