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.

Gregor decided last minute he could not write the GDB. Wanye is coming home from Texas, Bingofuel left yesterday for a week. OilersNation HQ is a black hole at the moment.

This is Linus Omark. He's starting to find the range in Oklahoma, and would have to be considered a strong option for callup when injuries hit or slumps continue. Just how well is he doing with the Barons? The best way to look at prospects and how they'll adjust to the NHL game is to have a long look at even-strength statistics. Omark is a very effective player.

For the Edmonton Oilers, the not-so-proud owners of the league’s 30th-ranked penalty kill, there is some good news: the goaltending is part of the problem, and it’s bound to get better.
