As Oilers prospect Jesse Puljujarvi continues to nurse his knee injury through stages of light rehabilitation, he’s taking in the sights and sounds around him at Orientation Camp in Jasper.
“It’s fun,” he said, reflecting on his first few days in Jasper and his new teammates for the week. “[They’re] good guys.”
Puljujarvi, who was selected fourth overall by the Oilers at this years NHL Draft, went under the knife following the U18 World Championship for a minor knee surgery.
The Finnish forward said his knee is feeling much better and that he hopes to return to the ice in a month. In the meantime, he’s focused on watching training and keeping fit.
Last season, Puljujarvi played for Karpat in Finland's Liiga, the top men's league, recording 13 goals and 15 assists for 28 games in 50 games.
