News: The Oilers loaned Joensuu to SC Bern of Switzerland's National League A on Friday, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Impact: Joensuu cleared waivers earlier this month, but never ended up reporting to the Oilers' AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City. Since a return to the parent club's lineup wasn't forthcoming, he elected to jump at the opportunity to move back to Europe. The Oilers will retain his rights should he decide to return to North America at some point.
