The Edmonton Oilers assigned forward Philippe Cornet to the Barons, general Manager Bill Scott announced on Thursday.
Cornet was assigned to Stockton at the beginning of the season. With the Thunder, Cornet collected 18 points, including 11 goals, to rank in the top 10 in scoring in the ECHL. Cornet also was plus-8.
A fifth round draft choice by Edmonton in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Cornet has played the previous two seasons with the Barons. In 127 games with the Barons, Cornet has 60 points. An American Hockey League All-Star last season, Cornet led the Barons in goals (24).
The Barons opened a seven-game homestand Wednesday night with a 6-4 win over the Texas Stars. They play a two-game series against South division leader Charlotte Saturday and Sunday in North Carolina.
