Iiro Pakarinen has been summoned by the Oilers and will play in Wednesday's contest against the Penguins.

With both Taylor Hall and Benoit Pouliot going down with injuries in Monday's game versus the Sharks, forward Iiro Pakarinen has been recalled from Oklahhoma City of the American Hockey League. He will take Hall's spot on the Oilers' top line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. Pakarinen hasn't played with the NHL club since November 13th but will get a quick spot start with Hall and Pouliot unable to play.

Iiro Pakarinen had six shots on goal Friday despite playing only 7:40 minutes.

It was Pakarinen's second NHL game and at least you now know he is not afraid to shoot the puck. The 23-year-old was drafted in the seventh round of the 2011 Draft by Florida. In two games he has one NHL goal.

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.

Pakarinen made his NHL debut on Thursday. He recorded three hits in 5:50 minutes of ice time. He has five goals and eight points in seven AHL games in 2014-15.

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.
