TULSA, OK– The head coach of the Tulsa Oilers, Bruce Ramsay, will be back behind the teams bench for at least the next two seasons.

“The enthusiasm we saw in the BOK Center during the playoffs was incredible and is definitely a tribute to Bruce and the team and the job they’ve done,” general manager Taylor Hall said. “Having Bruce here will keep the Oilers moving forward.”

After leading the Tulsa Oilers to their longest playoff run in 17 years, Tulsa Oilers coach Bruce Ramsay has signed a two year contract that will carry him through the end of the 2012-2013 season. Ramsay led the Oilers to a 35-25-6 record, good for third place in the Central Hockey League’s Berry Conference. The team qualified for the playoffs for the first time in six years and won its first playoff series since 1994.

“There’s no question we took some great steps last season and are headed in the right direction,” Ramsay said. “The fans really got back into it, and we’re looking forward to next season.”

In his two seasons with the Oilers, Coach Ramsay has compiled a 63-54-13 record.

The Oilers are hosting watch parties for the upcoming Stanley Cup Finals at both Buffalo Wild Wings locations. The Oilers and Buffalo Wild Wings will announce the schedule for the watch parties when the Stanley Cup final is set. It will feature the Vancouver Canucks and either the Boston Bruins or the Tampa Bay Lightning.
