OKC actually has a strong history with hockey dating back to 1965 with the Blazers. Cities like Red Deer and Saskatoon wouldn't be able to support both an AHL and a WHL team and in some cases don't have an arena big enough to support an AHL team.

Cox Convention Center in OKC: 13,399
ENMAX Centrium in Red Deer: 6,706
