The Edmonton Oilers recalled Jordan Oesterle from Bakersfield today, that means someone (probably Adam Larsson) is going to be unavailable against Arizona and possibly beyond). The Condors were short a man before the recall, and that has caused a chain reaction through the system. Let's have a look at the recalls, the injuries and the numbers from this week among Oilers prospects. Oesterle photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.

The meaning behind the name Jesse, according to those who research these things, is 'gift' and that fits the storyline regarding Jesse Puljujarvi's arrival as an Edmonton Oilers draft pick. We loved JP the moment he fell to No. 4 overall, and have become even more enamored with him through various impressive feats: Scoring his first goal in his first game, destroying a pizza in view of media cameras, and playing a stunningly mature game for a person of his age. JP is in the AHL right now, and Oilers fans are curious about his experience, what fair expectations might be, and perhaps most importantly, when will we see him again?

*crotch chop towards Calgary* Final Score: 2-1 Oilers in the shootout

It has been years since we've been here. Saturdays in Edmonton, over these 10 years, have come and gone without the feeling we have today. Combine anxiety, anticipation, 10 years of rage, demon liquor, unsatisfied sexual urges, blind anger from the workplace, and the blasted carbon tax, and you begin to approach the potential explosion just hours away in our fair city. Tonight, a 20-year old hockey player, touched by God, hits the ice with his fellow soldiers in a battle of Alberta that matters. Hello, friend. It is so very good to see you again.
