Iiro Pakarinen scored a goal in Edmonton’s 3-2 win over Buffalo on Friday.

The goal was Pakarinen’s first in the NHL. The 23-year-old was a seventh round pick of the Florida Panthers in the 2011 draft and was eventually signed as a free agent by the Oilers. He was called up on Thursday and has now played in two games since. Mark Arcobello and Boyd Gordon scored the other goals for Edmonton.

Iiro Pakarinen was called up from the minors on Thursday November 6.

Iiro Pakarinen has five goals and eight points in six AHL games thus far.

The Oilers sent him to the minors after an impressive training camp and he has flourished offensively in Oklahoma City. The talented Finn was selected in the seventh round by Florida in 2011 and inked a two-year deal with the Oilers in June. He is likely to be a bottom-six forward once he makes it in the NHL as he is also good defensively, but his scoring spree in the AHL is some reason for hope that he can also score at the NHL level.
