August 18: Ex-OKC Barons forward Andrew Lord scored the first goal for his new team SC Riessersee in their preseason game against Tölzer Löwen. 3-2 win. Well done, Andrew! He also picked up a 2-minute slashing penalty and an assist. That must feel fantastic after sitting out last season due to a concussion. Does this count as a Gordie Howe hat trick in the German leagues? (Thanks to Eric Rodgers (@AHLBarons) for locating this buried tidbit of news!)
