In preparation for Training Camp let’s take a look at some of the team statistics based on the current roster of 29 players shown below. With an average age of 22.72 years, the OKC Barons are the 7th youngest team in the AHL. They are the 9th tallest team, and the 17th heaviest team in the AHL. The team is young, fairly tall and they would do well to add some weight and muscle on these young prospects this season. As far as experience, the team has a couple of veterans in the group, and the games played experience shows well for the group. Not bad for a very young team. The Nationalities of the team line up with expectations with the bulk of the players originating in Canada followed by the US, Finland, Sweden, Latvia and Slovakia.
