For OKC Barons fans there are a couple of new Barons blogs that you will want to keep tabs on this coming season.

The first is an offshoot of Neal Livingston’s I’ll thought, You listen, called Tend the Farm, and as always, Neal offers his wonderfully salient thoughts on the Barons team, the players, and a smattering of all things hockey related to OKC.

The second new blog, Oklahoma City Barons News is based at 1340 the Game and is written by a very familiar face and name, Eric Rodgers. Welcome back to the blogosphere Eric, and we look forward to your game recaps and Barons news! He has jumped into the pool already with blogs about who we might see play in OKC if there is an NHL lockout and comments on the newly released schedule.

Both Neal and Eric have written for The Copper and Blue in the past and Eric worked for the OKC Barons team late last season for a short time. Having a group of blogs writing and commenting on OKC Barons news will provide much needed coverage, updates and commentary on the Edmonton Oilers farm team here in OKC. In addition to Neal’s and Eric’s blogs, I will continue to provide OKC Barons news and commentary here, in addition to my other hockey related writings.

Stay tuned for my comments and photos of OKC Barons training camp and other updates on the team as we slowly wind our way into the hockey season.
