December 3, 2012
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. ... The American Hockey League announced today that Oklahoma City Barons right wing Jordan Eberle has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Month for November.
Eberle led all AHL skaters during the month with 10 goals, 21 points and a plus-13 rating in 13 contests, including seven multiple-point games. The Barons were 6-1-1-1 during November when Eberle found the scoresheet.
Eberle scored twice, including the game-winner, in Oklahoma City’s 4-3 victory over Houston on Nov. 2, and followed that up with two goals and an assist in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Aeros on Nov. 3. He tied a Barons franchise record with four assists, including three in the final 3:16 of regulation, as Oklahoma City rallied for a point in a 6-5 overtime loss to Toronto on Nov. 13. Eberle then had 10 points in a four-game span beginning Nov. 17, including back-to-back two-goal efforts at Charlotte on Nov. 24-25.
Eberle, 22, ranks second in the AHL in scoring with 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) in 20 games for the Barons this season. A first-round draft choice (22nd overall) by Edmonton in 2008, Eberle recorded 34 goals and 42 assists for 76 points in 78 games for the Oilers in 2011-12, and has totaled 119 points (52 goals, 67 assists) in 147 career NHL games. The native of Regina, Sask., made his professional debut with the AHL’s Springfield Falcons in 2009 and shows 21 goals and 29 assists for 50 points in 40 career AHL games with Springfield and Oklahoma City.
In recognition of his achievement, Eberle will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Barons home game.
