The Tulsa Junior Oilers are pleased to announce that Defenseman Joey Tingler and Forward Taner Byrd have resigned for the 2015-2016 season.
Joey came to the team last year at the start of the 2014-2015 season. Joey battled injuries most of the season, but finished the season strong the last few games of the year and will have an immediate impact for the Jr Oilers this season. Coach Magers is very excited to have Joey back again this year. “Joey’s a kid with great size and a very heavy shot. He knows the game very well and we will look to count on him in bigger rolls this season.”
Taner Byrd was acquired by the Oilers midway through the 2014-2015 season from the Oklahoma City Blazers. Taner played in 21 games with the Oilers last year. “Taner is the ultimate team player that will do anything for his teammates,” says Head Coach Marty Magers. “He plays twice his size and with grit.” Taner finished the season with 6 points in 21 games for the Oilers last year and looks to build on that going into this season.
