Bogdan Yakimov Shoulder Injury Update Coming Soon

Bogdan Yakimov Shoulder Injury Update Coming Soon

Bogdan Yakimov has been an interesting player to watch. Slow and chiseled, smart and curious – he is one entertaining not-so-little center prospect. Two points (a goal and an assist) in six games isn’t a huge journey for the kid drafted in the third round in 2013. He is altogether a work in progress, and bettering himself on the defensive side.

In Wednesday’s game against the Texas Stars he was injured after a rough ride into the boards. He instantly needed help off the ice, and it appeared that he was favoring his right shoulder just a bit, while wiping the “woozies” from his eyes.

Shoulder injuries are the stuff of legend in the Oilers organization. Let’s hope this isn’t a major situation, and the team has promised an update in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled.

Tyler Bunz Looks Forward To Season With Wichita

Tyler Bunz Looks Forward To Season With Wichita

The Edmonton Oilers had an interesting situation developing in net for their prospects this season. Signing Ty Rimmer to an AHL deal, the Oilers gave themselves seven total goaltenders signed, and only a limited number of spots to play them. Last season, the Oilers had the same situation, but Rimmer was already committed to playing for the Quad City Mallards of the then-CHL, allowing them to spread their goaltenders out among their affiliations. This season, the Oilers had to decide which goaltenders went where, and find another team for their extra goalie.

The Origin Of Iiro The Hero (And Other Finnish Things)

The Origin Of Iiro The Hero (And Other Finnish Things)

There is a lack of Finnish things on the Edmonton Oilers these days. In fact there was a lack of Finnish things on the Oklahoma City Barons roster since the departure of Teemu Hartikainen. The grand five years that the Barons have been in existence they have managed to position seven Baltic Sea lovers in the lineup, and seven has always been God’s perfect number. Toni Rajala, Antti Tyrvainen, Teemu Hartikainen, and to a lesser extent Lennart Petrell, Niko Hovinen, and Frans Tuohimaa have given opponents Helsinki Hell and caused a frenzied hot flash to Barons fans far and wide. The swoon-worthy-ness of Finnish hockey players has always been a tiny obsession of mine, and it only grows as the days go by.

This year the Oklahoma City Barons have introduced their latest Finnish Phenom and his name is Iiro, Iiro the Hero.
