Sports: NHL Showcase

Oklahoma City is plenty proud of its resident hockey team, the OKC Barons, but there won’t be any hard feelings when the Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars pack the Barons’ house for a special preseason match at the Cox Convention Center, 1 Myriad Gardens. The NHL Showcase brings the teams together on Oklahoma City ice at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27. The Barons have been the AHL affiliate team of Edmonton since the franchise moved from Canada to OKC in 2010. As a kind of development team, the Barons have groomed players for the Oilers, which means this preseason game could feature more than a few familiar faces under all that safety gear. Season ticket holders already hold a pass to the special exhibition. For the rest of us, showcase tickets are $24-$39, available at www.okcbarons.com. Watch when the Barons open its home season of play the weekend of Oct. 4-5.
