Steven Pinizzotto, making his season debut for the Oilers, was impressive in his team's 5-4 loss to the visiting Vancouver Canucks Wednesday night.

Pinizzotto, called up by the Oilers to take Jesse Joensuu's spot on their fourth line, scored a goal and added an assist. He also picked up seven minutes in penalties. Other goal scorers for Edmonton Wednesday were Teddy Purcell, his third, Boyd Gordon, also with his third, and Andrew Ference, his first. Oilers left wing David Perron had a goal waved off with 10.1 seconds left in the game for kicking the puck into the net.

Steve Pinizzotto will dress Wednesday night against Vancouver.

He will take Jesse Joensuu's spot on the fourth line and Luke Gazdic will remain a healthy scratch. "Pinizzotto was worthy of a call-up and the guy we were most comfortable taking out, and maybe not so fairly, was Jesse. It's really not a question about Luke," said coach Dallas Eakins. "Luke's a left winger and we want to keep him in that spot. We don't have a spot open right now." Pinizzotto skated in 12 games with the Canucks in 2012-13 and he appeared in six contests with the Oilers last year.

He has six assists and 40 penalty minutes in nine AHL games in 2014-15. He's not worth picking up in standard leagues.
