The oilers just can't score goals as a team so the fact he has 10 pts with limited playing time is actually pretty impressive.

Edit: to repeat what others have already stated. Playing with two guys like Gags and Hemsky is a tough position for a rookie as well. Both players can be unpredictable at times, especially together.
You do realize that Yakupov playing on the 2nd line with Gagner and Hemsky is a little better than the 3rd line with Eller/Gallagher and Prust (who's had so many missed easy goals).
