The Nuge is down for 7 to 10 days and the Oilers have recalled Paajarvi. The hyphens are getting a workout today as word gets out: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins out and Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson called to the show.
The Oilers are probably being very cautious with the kid, after all there’s nothing more important to this organization than his future–providing Taylor Hall is bubble wrapped in safety.
I don’t like the Swede-Finn recall. Magnus needs to play a lot in the heart of the order, and we know how the coach feels about him. Unless he’s shaved those sideburns–hell, at this point he better show up as a mexican hairless–he’s going to get a healthy dose of riding shotgun for 6′s and 7′s.
