The Oilers have had several roster updates within the past week. Brandon Wong and Trevor Campbell were sent to Indy Fuel as part of a trade deal to acquire Josh Brittain. Josh will provide speed and size to the Oilers as he maneuvers his way through the ice as one of Tulsa’s forwards. Another newcomer, Riley Armstrong, landed in Tulsa as a result of a trade with the Reading Royals. He will amplify the team with both NHL and European hockey experience. The trade for Riley Armstrong gave the Royals’ future consideration. Brennan Serville, was re-assigned by the Manitoba Moose to Tulsa. The Moose are the AHL affiliate of the Tulsa Oilers. The Oilers are looking forward to the defensive abilities Serville has produced. Another roster change, Joe Sova was traded to Toledo in exchange for future considerations.
The Tulsa Oilers are hosting the Quad City Mallards for two of the three Valentine’s Day weekend games. This year the Oilers have seen the Quad City Mallards two times this season.

While we’re on the top of Quad City, you won’t want to miss the Tulsa Oilers take on the Mallards on Saturday night, February 13th. Two of our very own Oilers were selected to the ECHL Fantasy Teams by great fans, like you! One player and one goaltender from each were selected to wear these jerseys this year.

The Oilers are presently, live time, playing the Quad City Mallards. The Oilers took a huge 3-0 leave over the visiting team but then allowed two goals as Kevin Carr just could not beat them to the puck. The teams would sit 3-2 going into the final frame. The Oilers have been heavily oustshooting the Oilers the entire game–doubling their shots on goal.
