Oilers coach impressed with Magnus Paajarvi | 04/01/2013 9:20 AM
NewsMagnus Paavarji has been impressing his coach Ralph Krueger.
ImpactPaajarvi's game has taken a huge step forward this season and he had five goals and eight points in 14 games and had plenty of chances as he is good at crashing the net. "Nobody's been in the blue-paint more than him after watching the overhead videos," said Krueger. "He's around the net. He stops, he sticks, he looks for opportunities. He's been a leader of this group, making other players better, because his success has come from simple habits." Paajarvi is still only 21 so he is someone to target in pools over the next few years.

ImpactPaajarvi has four goals and six points in his last eight games and now has six goals and eight points in 23 games.

Magnus Paajarvi scores winner for Oilers | 02/17/2013 11:11 AM
NewsMagnus Paajarvi was the unexpected hero Saturday, as he scored the game-winning goal in a 6-4 defeat of the Avalanche.
ImpactPaajarvi wasn't expected to dress for the game, but was inserted at the last minute to replace Lennart Petrell, who was injured during the pre-game warmup. Coach Ralph Krueger praised the youngster's ability to step up when necessary, saying "(Paajarvi) was probably eating hotdogs when we pulled him in. He didn't even have a warm-up and he scored the winner. So many storylines ... two points is all we get for this game, but we're getting a lot more in our history to take forward with us." Paajarvi skated for just 9:56, but his goal with under two minutes to play broke a 4-4 tie and lifted Edmonton to victory.
Magnus Paajarvi scores shorthanded | 02/11/2013 9:47 AM
NewsMagnus Paajarvi scored his first goal of the season Sunday in a 3-1 win over Columbus.
ImpactPaajarvi's shorthanded goal was the game winner and it was his first NHL goal this season. "It was nice to get a goal, especially on the penalty kill," said Paajarvi. "We didn't get a lot of offense, they shut us down pretty well. It was all about character in this game for sure." Paajarvi was selected 10th overall in the 2009 Draft and the highly regarded prospect seems to have stagnated. He needs time on a scoring line and he may not get that chance with the young Oilers.
Oilers recall Magnus Paajarvi from the minors | 02/04/2013 10:34 AM
NewsThe Edmonton Oilers have recalled Magnus Paajarvi from the minors.
ImpactPaajarvi was sent down on Jan. 31 and recalled Sunday. He was the 10th overall pick in the 2009 Draft and while he has all the makings of a great power forward, he has not been able to make the jump and stick in the NHL. He needs to be on a scoring line and since the Oilers have so much talent up front, Paajarvi may need a trade out of town to fulfill his promise.

NewsThe Oilers have demoted Magnus Paajarvi to the minors.
ImpactWith Shawn Horcoff (neck) injured, Edmonton made the decision to bring up Anton Lander and send down Paajarvi. The 10th overall pick in the 2009 draft had been averaging just over 10 minutes of ice time after five games as a member of the Oilers. He didn't record a point and had a minus-3 rating. Paajarvi is only 21 years of age but right now it's hard to envision him making any kind of impact in Edmonton.

Dan Tencer on Twitter
ImpactPaajarvi will finally see the ice after being a healthy scratch in Sunday's season opener. The former 10th overall pick in 2009 has a lot to prove but at 21 still has some time left. He's not worth watching for fantasy purposes for the time being.

NewsMagnus Paajarvi was a healthy scratch on Sunday.
ImpactPaajarvi made the squad after playing in Oklahoma City this year with fellow Oilers Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Jordan Eberle and Justin Schultz. Paajarvi had four goals and 20 points in 36 games.
