2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Pakarinen came in third on the Oilers with 152 hits despite playing only 63 games last year, but he provided precious little offense Ė just 13 points. Toughness is probably the 24-year-old Finnís key to a roster spot, as he lacks the skill to hang with Edmontonís top forwards, but knows how to throw his 6-foot-1, 215-pound frame around. Heís still going to be a fantasy afterthought in most formats unless he takes a major step forward offensively; for what itís worth, Pakarinenís shown offensive ability at the AHL level, having notched 31 points in 43 games over the last two seasons.

2015-16

Pakarinen was one of several unheralded AHL call-ups to make his debut with the Oilers last season, as he appeared in 17 games and was able to notch his first NHL goal. Edmonton doesn't seem to have big plans in store for him long-term, so heíll likely need a rash of injuries before he earns another extended stay at the NHL level.
