Oklahoma scene: Barons lose forward Magnus Paajarvi to Edmonton Oilers
Less than a week after Paajarvi was sent to Oklahoma City, the NHL team takes the 20-year-old off the Barons' roster.
The Edmonton Oilers recalled forward Magnus Paajarvi from the Oklahoma City Barons. Paajarvi, 20, is returning to the National Hockey League team less than a week after being sent down to Oklahoma City. He has four goals and 20 points in 37 games with the American Hockey League team this season; Paajarvi started the season with the Barons and was one of several players called up to Edmonton when the NHL lockout ended.
