Edmonton called up forwards Teemu Hartikainen, Magnus Paajarvi and Chris VandeVelde and defenseman Colten Teubert for training camp, which started Sunday.
The Oilers have 25 players in camp. They must trim their roster to 23 before they open a revamped 48-game season next week.
Hartikainen and Paajarvi are projected to make the Oilers' roster while VandeVelde and Teubert most likely will be reassigned to Oklahoma City.
HARTIKAINEN'S FINAL GAME IN OKC?
Hartikainen is one of only seven players that have played at least one game in all three Barons seasons. Projected to stick with the Oilers all season, Hartikainen might have played his final game at the Cox Convention Center Saturday night.
“It's been great for me,” Hartikainen said. “I have a lot of good friends here. I got a lot of ice time my three years here, including the power play. I scored a lot of points in this building. It's been a great feeling, some really good memories.”
REVAMPED POWER PLAY UPDATE
When the Oilers young stars were in OKC, the Barons had the league's best power play (25.6 percent).
The new-look power play, led by Mark Arcobello and Josh Green, has had some good scoring chances the past four games. But after going 0-of-4 on Sunday the Barons are 13.3 percent (2-of-15) without Jordan Eberle, Justin Schultz, Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
“We had some good looks,” said OKC coach Todd Nelson. “We just couldn't score. If you're not getting chances that's worrisome. But we're getting chances. The goals will come.”
PLANTE'S INJURY NOT SERIOUS
Defenseman Alex Plante, who injured his shoulder in a fight Saturday night, sat out Sunday's game. Plante said an exam confirmed it's nothing major and he should be ready for next weekend's two-game homestand against San Antonio. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
