Big men will bol­ster de­fense

Tulsa World - - Work&money -

With the ad­di­tion of rook­ies Ter­rance Amorosa, Chris For­ney and Scott Mold­en­hauer — all of whom were ac­quired in a trade with the San Diego Gulls — Mur­ray said the Oil­ers will be much im­proved on de­fense from last year.

“I think our D core is look­ing re­ally good,” Mur­ray said. “The three guys we got from San Diego are all big and mo­bile. They shoot the puck a ton. We were lack­ing depth on de­fense last year and as of to­day we got that.

“As of right now, we have eight play­ers here that could make good play­ers for us. I am re­ally op­ti­mistic and ex­cited about this group.”
