Houston held Paajarvi off of the scoresheet in his NHL debut, though he did attempt three shots on goal, but his shootout goal was followed by a Gilbert Brule conversion and the two helped the Barons to a 3-2 win over the Aeros tonight.

If the goal looks familiar to you, that's because it bears a striking resemblance to Peter Forsberg's shootout goal against Canada in the gold medal game in the 1994 Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.

It should be noted that Tom Renney used Paajarvi just twice in the shootout last season and not at all in 2011-12.

Paajarvi's stint in Oklahoma City is already one game too long and he should be on his way back to Edmonton on the next flight out.
