Just tallying up some stats I've been recording during #OKCBarons home games. Klefbom has a 65% Fenwick ratio and a 40% OZ start at evens. Klefbom is just ahead of Taylor Fedun, who has a 64% Fenwick ratio with a 38% offensive zone start.

It's early, but some concern over Pitlick. He's 1-2-3 in 6 GP. Those two assists came tonight on Omark goals, which were all solo Omark efforts. His 1 goal is a SH goal. He's being given 1st line ES, 1st PP, and 1st PK minutes. Willis has a blog entry on the Cult of Hockey where he has Nelson quoted that he's feeding Pitlick PK time in an effort to develop his PK game and make him a useful player in a bottom-6 capacity in the show. This is an absolutely crucial season for him. He's being given the at bats, now he show some kind of ability to produce.
Pitlick's offensive tools are limited, he should be getting groomed to be a bottom 6 guy that can PK and is told to bang bodies ala Cal Clutterbuck.

Agreed, unless Dubnyk strings together 3-4 good games in a row I'd give him a chance.
