Pakarinen, Klefbom Assigned to OKC

The Edmonton Oilers have assigned forward Iiro Pakarinen and defenseman Oscar Klefbom to the Oklahoma City Barons. Two high-profile players for the Barons so far this season, these additions will add a big boost to the team in the near future.

Pakarinen made his NHL debut after getting called up on November 6th. During the call-up, he netted his first career NHL goal against Buffalo on November 7th. Pakarinen appeared in five games for the Oilers, playing less than ten minutes per game. Prior to his call-up, Pakarinen appeared in seven games with the Barons, earning eight points (5 goals, 3 assists).

Klefbom was called up before Pakarinen was, but only appeared in two games for the Oilers. In the game against Philadelphia, Klefbom was a -2, but played to an Even in his next game against Boston.  In six games with the Barons, Klefbom scored seven points, one goal and six assists.

With a big game coming up on Tuesday morning against the San Antonio Rampage (San Antonio’s turn for a kids day game), and riding the momentum from their last minute win against Iowa on Saturday night, the Barons will be happy to have the added boost.

    1. I’m sure Klefbom will be happy to get back on the ice. Pakarinen played well in Edmonton, but he’ll certainly get more ice time in OKC.
