OILERS SIGN EXPERIENCED FORWARD DARREN MCCORMICK
Tulsa adds scoring punch with SPHL goals leader Darren McCormick
TULSA, OK — The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Anaheim Ducks, announced Wednesday the singing of forward Darren McCormick
McCormick, 28, joins the Oilers from Rapid City, where the forward posted an assist in four games.
“McCormick brings a strong skill set to the lineup,” head coach Rob Murray said of his newest forward. ”He has a lot of skill, and the man advantage is his bread and butter, so we’re hoping he can bring some life to a struggling power play.”
The 5’11 175 lbs. forward has 137 points (83G, 54A) in 160 SPHL games. The shifty forward also collected seven points (4G, 3A) in 12 games with Briancon in France’s top league.
McCormick joins former Pensacola SPHL champions Jordan Ernst, Duggie Lagrone and Eddie Matsushima on the roster. McCormick led the entire SPHL with 20 goals in the 2020-21 season.
The Buffalo, NY native played collegiately at SUNY-Courtland, potting 93 points (43G, 50A) in 75 GP with the Blaze.
