The St. Louis Blues have entered into a one-year affiliation agreement with the ECHL’s Tulsa Oilers.
The agreement will begin with the 2017-18 season.
“We are proud to extend our footprint to Tulsa and partner with the Oilers for the 2017-18 season,” Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said. “The Oilers are a strong organization from top to bottom and will provide a great opportunity for our young prospects to continue to develop their game.”
“It is truly an honor for us to affiliate with such a class organization like the St. Louis Blues,” Oilers general manager Taylor Hall said in a press release. “Our fan base will be thrilled as we have many Blues fans here in Tulsa.”
The Oilers play their home games at BOK Center and will begin their fourth season in the ECHL in October. Last season, Tulsa finished with a 27-37-6 record (62 points), which ranked fifth in the ECHL’s Central Division.
