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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
