It was announced on Tuesday in the BOK Center that after 14 year as owner, Jeff Lund has sold the Tulsa Oilers hockey club to the Wichita based Steven Brothers Sports Management, LLC. The management team also purchased the Wichita Thunder, who are the only remaining original franchise other than the Oilers.
Jeff Lund helmed the Oilers as general manager from the team’s inception in 1992 before purchasing the team outright in 1999. Under his direction, he facilitated the team’s move from the Tulsa Convention Center to the BOK Center in 2008, and 3.5 million fans have enjoyed Oiler hockey in his time with the team. Lund will remain the owner of the Oilers Ice Center and the Tulsa Junior Oilers, a tier III junior hockey team that plays in the Western States Hockey League.
