Beginning with the 2010–11 season, the city of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma will be home to an American Hockey League (AHL) franchise and will serve as the top minor league affiliate of the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers. The team will play out of the 13,399 seat Cox Convention Center.

The team will be named through a fan contest. Fans can submit the name of their choice via the ownership group's website [1] and several local outlets.

The new team marks professional hockey's return to Oklahoma City following the demise of the Central Hockey League's Oklahoma City Blazers which played from 1992 until 2009. Bob Funk, who headed the Blazers' ownership group, is also at the helm of Prodigal Hockey, the group in charge of the new AHL franchise.

The current franchise has gone through several incarnations, the first of which was the Nova Scotia Oilers and the most recent having been the Edmonton Road Runners. On February 9, 2010, the AHL officially announced the approval of the franchise's transfer.[2]
