By Josh Evans, OKC Barons

The Edmonton Oilers, parent club of the Oklahoma City Barons, assigned center Chris VandeVelde to Oklahoma City, Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today.

Vandevelde, a 6-2, 210-pounder from Moorhead, Minn., was recalled by Edmonton on February 8 and played in the Oilers contest against Detroit on February 9. He played over 11 minutes in that game and served two penalty minutes. Vandevelde, the Oilers 4th round selection (97th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, has played in 173 games for the Barons, scoring 49 points (21-28-49). His 173 games is the most in Barons franchise history. 

The Barons return to action next weekend with a pair of games against the Texas Stars at the Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park, Texas. Faceoff Friday is 7:30 p.m., while faceoff Saturday is 7 p.m. Both games can be heard on the Barons flagship station, 96.1 KXY.
