Magnus Paajarvi likely to get a look with Gagner and Hemsky tonight. Eager and Jones will flank Belanger.
With Teemu Hartikainen going on IR with an injured shoulder Paajarvi will assume his position on the second line. Paajarvi will need to play well alongside Gagner and Hemsky if he wants to stay on that line. This is a good opportunity for the former 10th overall pick to finally live up to that potential.
Paajarvi has been moved up to the third line with Horcoff and Smyth.
Paajarvi played his first game game of the year on Tuesday, but only saw 9:30 of ice time. He must have played well enough to impress the Edmonton coaching staff as they've moved him up to the third line. He still isn't fantasy relevant until he proves he can score at this level.
