Oklahoma City Barons fans have two chances to meet their favorite player when the Barons host Grand Rapids this weekend.

During both games Friday and Saturday night, Barons fans have the opportunity to purchase pucks signed by the players. At a minimum, each fan that takes part in the raffle walks away with a puck signed by their favorite player. Some pucks have been signed with a pen colored differently than the others. Those that get that color have the opportunity to meet that player in a Meet and Greet following the game Saturday night.

Each puck costs $5 to purchase. There is no minimum to the number of pucks that can be purchased. Proceeds from the puck raffle benefit the Barons Buddies program with Special Olympics Oklahoma.

In addition to the opportunity to meet players during the puck raffle, fans can meet five Barons players for a 30-minute autograph session following the game outside of the team store, The Edge. The five players participating in the 30-minute autograph session will not be involved in the Meet & Greet following the game. The five players scheduled to appear in the 30-minute autograph session are: Antti Tyrvainen, Andrew Hotham, Niko Hovinen, Nathan Deck and Alex Plante.

Players are scheduled to appear, but may not due to injury, call up or other obligation.

The Barons return to action this weekend with two home games against the Grand Rapids Griffins. Friday is Concession Specials night with $1 hot dogs and $2 draft beers. Saturday is another Drive Away Every Saturday. One lucky fan will drive away in a Ford Taurus from John Vance Auto. Faceoff for both games is 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center. Both games can be heard on the Barons flagship station, 96.1 KXY.
