 The Oklahoma City Barons today announced their promotional schedule for the 2012-13 hockey season.

The season opener October 19 is the first of 12 nights that a Barons fan will drive away with a new car. The Barons are giving away a car at each Saturday night home game, plus the home opener on October 19. In addition to the car giveaway on the team’s first game, Mercy Health Systems is sponsoring a t-shirt giveaway to promote Cancer Awareness. Everyone in attendance receives a t-shirt.
