Oilers recall Martin Marincin and Roman Horak from AHL's Barons

EDMONTON - Defenceman Martin Marincin and forward Roman Horak were recalled by the Edmonton Oilers from their minor-league affiliate on Thursday.

Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes.

The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey League's Oklahoma City Barons this season.

Horak will be making his first appearance with the Oilers.

The 22-year-old was traded to Edmonton from the Calgary Flames on Nov. 8, alongside goaltending prospect Laurent Brossoit in exchange for forward Ladislav Smid and minor-league goalie Olivier Roy.

Horak has five goals and 13 assists with a minus-5 rating over 82 NHL games with Calgary. He has five goals, six assists and a minus-2 rating with Oklahoma City this season.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
