Roman Horak was called up from the minors on Saturday.

It was a nice return to the NHL for Horak as he opened the scoring with his first goal of the season. Horak, who was dealt to Edmonton from Calgary in a rare trade between the teams earlier in the season, had 19 goals and 45 points in 50 games with Oklahoma City of the AHL after the trade. He will attempt to crack the Oilers squad in 2014-15 if he returns to Edmonton as a restricted free agent.

Roman Horak was held pointless in his Oilers debut Tuesday.

Horak was acquired from the Flames on November 8 and started on the second line alongside center Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle. Horak was minus-one in 12:58 minutes of action. He is not worth looking at, at this time.

Roman Horak is set to make his Edmonton Oilers debut on Tuesday.

Horak was acquired from the Calgary Flames on Nov. 8. He has seven goals and 18 points in 31 AHL contests this season. He's set to play on a line with Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle, so he'll be worth keeping an eye on.

Edmonton summoned Roman Horak from the minors on Thursday night.

This is his first appearance with the Oilers since he was acquired from Calgary on Nov. 8 as part of the Ladislav Smid trade. Horak has posted 11 points in 18 games with AHL Oklahoma City since the move.

Roman Horak had a great offensive weekend in the minors.

Horak had two goals on Saturday and then added a goal and a helper on Sunday. He was acquired in the deal that sent Ladislav Smid to the Flames a month ago. He has four goals and nine points in 13 games with Oklahoma City of the AHL in the last month. Horak was considered a prospect when he came over from Europe and has played 82 games in the NHL with five goals and 18 points over three seasons including one game for Calgary this year. He is only 22 so he still has a chance to make it in the NHL.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Laurent Brossoit and Roman Horak from the Calgary Flames in exchange for Ladislav Smid.

The Calgary Flames have recalled Roman Horak from the minors.

Horak has bounced up and down over the last two seasons between the Flames and their minor league affiliate in Abbotsford as he played 61 games with Calgary in 2011-12, scoring three goals and 11 points and then played 20 games last season, finding the back of the net twice and picking up five assists. He had a goal and three points in six AHL games this season with a minus-four rating. We cannot recommend him at this time.

Roman Horak has been sent down to the AHL Abbotsford Heat.

Horak fell just short of making the Flames' opening game roster. He's a good bet to enjoy at least a stint with the Flames before the season's over.

The Calgary Herald says that Roman Horak is a bubble player heading into his third season with the Flames organization.

Horak has split the last two seasons between the NHL and the AHL and a breakthrough offensively will certainly help his chances and he has only five goals and 13 assists in 81 career games. "It's hard to make the NHL," Horak said. "Basically, if you don't make it in the first three or four years, it's going to be really hard to get back. I know this is one of my last shots and I'm going to do whatever it takes." Look for Horak to settle in as the Flames third line center and expect a jump to 10-15 goals and 30-35 points this season.

Roman Horak is looking to make the Calgary Flames as their third line center.

Horak is hoping to break through offensively this season after a two goal, seven point season in 20 games during the 2013 campaign after a three goal, 11 point season in 61 games in 2011-12. He was afraid to make a mistake offensively in his first two seasons as he did not want to be benched or sent to the minors. Look for Horak to break out a bit in 2013-14 as he should get 10-15 goals and 30-35 points.
