The Finn is in. It took a Swede with a Finnish background (MPS) to do it by applying a slapshot to Shawn Horcoff, but Teemu Hartikainen will be recalled to Edmonton this week in time for the Phoenix game. We’ve discussed Hartikainen as a possible recall since a hot January and this week it will come to pass.
The season is lost, but there are some silver linings. The rookies have been splendid, and now the Oilers have added a Finn. That’s a good day.
