The Edmonton Oilers assigned forwards Toni Rajala and Cameron Abney to the Oklahoma City Barons, general Manager Bill Scott officially announced on Tuesday.
Rajala currently leads Stockton in scoring with 23 points, including 11 goals. His goal, assist and point totals are tops in the ECHL among first-year players. His 11 goals ties him for the league lead and 23 points is fourth.
Abney has split time this season between Stockton and Oklahoma City. With the Barons, he has appeared in three games and served seven penalty minutes. Last season, the Oilers 3rd round draft choice (81st overall) in the 2009 NHL Draft split time between Stockton and Oklahoma City. In 46 games last season, he recorded five points while serving 156 penalty minutes.
The Barons begin a seven-game stretch away from home Wednesday in Cedar Park, Texas against the Texas Stars.
