When it comes to tracking prospects, I like to count arrows. Greg Chase (in photo by Rob Ferguson, all rights reserved) has posted a stunning number of good arrows since he was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers, and his World Junior experience at the summer camp for Team Canada was a tremendous positive. Tonight, Greg Chase's junior career is in limbo and his status as a Calgary Hitmen player is fluid.

The Oklahoma City Barons are blowing the doors off the American Hockey League's goalies, having scored 32 goals in eight games. There are five forwards scoring at a point-per-game or better, and three of those players are considered legit NHL prospects. So when Taylor Hall was injured Saturday night, it meant opportunity. No one has been recalled yet, but men like Iiro Pakarinen (in photo by Rob Ferguson, all rights reserved) are pushing for their chance.

The Edmonton Oilers recalled Oscar Klefbom Sunday, and placed Brad Hunt on waivers to make room.

This week Oilers prospects lit the lamp and made significant noise, with one prospect enjoying a breakout week in his minor league career. Oscar Klefbom (photo by Rob Ferguson, all rights reserved) had a wonderful week as he builds his resume on the way to the NHL.

Not much was known about Iiro Pakarinen the day he signed with the Edmonton Oilers, beyond he's a Finn and that's a good thing for the Edmonton Oilers (ALL of the good things that have happened in franchise history included a Finn in the Fotto).
He camp to training camp, impressed, and was sent to the minors. Where he's raising hell.
