While the Oilers have been getting by alright in the offence department, averaging 2.83 goals per game (13th in the NHL), their first unit power play has been all but invisible over the season’s opening stanza.

Throughout the Taylor v. Tyler debate last year, there wasn't much mention of Jeff Skinner, but as we got closer to the 2010 draft we started to hear more about the offensive upside of the former Kitchener Ranger. The Hurricanes took him with the 7th pick and so far he has looked like an exceptional choice. Tonight we will see four of the top-eight rookie scorers in the NHL, and Skinner leads them all with five goals and 12 points.

Based on performance and need, highlight reel hotshot Linus Omark isn't the first player who should be recalled from the Oklahoma City Barons by the Edmonton Oilers. Now that I think about it, he's not even the second.

Shawn Horcoff is listed as day-to-day with a left leg injury after clipping skates with Jack Skille during the Oilers 2-1 win in Chicago last night. Meanwhile in Oklahoma City, Linus Omark was putting on a clinic against the Toronto Marlies. Omark potted five goals in regulation and added another in the shootout to lead the Barons to a 7-6 victory.
Scoring five goals in any league will get you noticed, and I wonder how this performance will impact Omark's ranking in the organization?

This is Linus Omark in an Oilers uniform. The OKC Baron had a huge game yesterday and is now one of the AHL's top scorers.
