St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the Blues have agreed to a one-year affiliation extension with the ECHL’s Tulsa Oilers.
“We are excited to extend our affiliation with Tulsa,” said Armstrong. “We developed a great working relationship last season and the affiliation has proven to be beneficial for both organizations.”
“Having been affiliated with the Blues over the years in both Alaska and Tulsa, I have become very familiar and comfortable with the management team in St. Louis,” said Oilers Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Rob Murray. The partnership got off to a great start last season, as the players we received from St. Louis were key to our success. We’re excited to continue into next season, especially as the Blues begin their AHL affiliation in San Antonio.”
Tulsa, which plays out of the ECHL’s Mountain Division, finished last season with a 31-29-12 regular season record. The Oilers will begin their 11th season of play at the BOK Center on Oct. 13, 2018.
