MPS Signs

This is a good news day for Oiler fans as highly anticipated prospect and surprise star of the IIHF Swedish team Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson signs a three-year NHL entry level contract with the Edmonton Oilers.
Considered one of the more NHL ready prospects having spent time in the Swedish Elite League and having played with professional hockey players, MPS stands a chance to make this upcoming seasons squad.

Odds sit now at about 50/50 that he spends some time in the AHL, but those are decisions a lot easier to make now that he is officially an Oiler.

Paajarvi-Svensson, the Oilers 1st round choice, 10th overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, recently completed his third season with Timra IK of the Swedish Elite League. The 6’2”, 201-pound left-winger from Norrkoping, Sweden, finished third in team scoring with 29 points (12G, 17A) in 49 games
