With the NHL lockout reaching a conclusion, the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League have pulled forwards Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall, as well as rookie defenceman Justin Schultz, from the lineup for Sunday's game in Chicago.

"We're heading back to Oklahoma," Eberle told TSN's James Duthie on Sunday. "It was a little surprising to hear (about the lockout ending) this morning, but I'm sure the (Barons) will be fine."

The 22-year-old Eberle, who was named AHL player of the month this week, leads the league with 25 goals and 26 assists in 34 games for the Barons this season.

The Regina native had 34 goals and 42 assists in 78 games for the Edmonton Oilers last season.

The 21-year-old Hall joined the Barons after coming off shoulder surgery and seven months of rehabilitation. In 26 games this season, the Calgary native has 14 goals and 20 assists. 

Last season, Hall racked up 27 goals and 26 assists through 61 games with the Oilers.

Schultz, 22, has 18 goals and 30 assists with the Barons this season.
