The Edmonton Oilers assigned left-winger Magnus Paajarvi to the Oklahoma City Barons, Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today.

Paajarvi, a 6-2, 204-pounder from Norrkoping, Sweden was the Oilers 1st round draft choice (10th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.  The 20-year old has played in 105 games with the Oilers, scoring 37 points (15-22-37).  Last season, he played 80 games with Edmonton and finished seventh on the team in scoring with 34 points (15-19-34).

Saturday night is the Barons final home game before Christmas.  The team is giving hats and hams in advance of the Christmas holiday.  The first 1,000 fans through the doors will receive a Barons Santa hat.  Season Seat Holders need not wait in that line.  ALL Season Seat Holders will receive the one-of-a-kind Santa hat.

Following the game, fans will have a chance to come down to the ice and shoot a puck into an empty net.  Fans who are successful will win a certificate for a ham from Schwab Meat Co.

Saturday’s home game against the Houston Aeros is a battle for first place in the Western Division.  The Barons and Aeros have the two best records in the AHL and are separated by just one point.  Tickets start at $10 and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets.  Faceoff is at 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center.
