And The Thunder Rolls... Players Assigned Today

The Oklahoma City Barons have announced that Philippe Cornet and Toni Rajala have been sent down to the Stockton Thunder this morning.

While I'm not rat all surprised Rajala was sent down (He's just turned pro and Stockton would be a great experience for him), I am very surprised they sent Cornet to the ECHL.

Cornet had a great season last year with the OKC Barons. He scored 24 goals. He's played the last two seasons with the Barons and was even an AHL All Star last year. There has to be more to this story. But whatever it is, the Stockton Thunder just gained a heck of a player.

The Barons also lent defenceman Tiegan Zahn to the Thunder as well.

  1. I know some are surprised but to be honest there is still something missing in Cornet game. I have felt like that for awhile now. His goals were impressive but he faltered down the road and when really the pressure was on, Cornet did not produce in the playoffs like we saw in earlier season.

    I dont see him moving forward with the OKC barons other then a call up or fill in on the 3rd or 4th line when or if lockout ends. Poor guy, cause compared to regular hockey players not in the NHL, Cornet is really good.
