Patrick Thoresen was born November 7, 1983 in Oslo, Norway. Signed as a free agent by the Edmonton Oilers on June 1, 2006, Thoresen became only the fifth player from Norway to play a game in the NHL when he laced up the skates with the Oilers in 2006.

An offensive two-way forward, Thoresen spent a pair of seasons with Storhamar in the Norwegian League before joining the QMJHL's Moncton Wildcats in 2001-02. After only a season in Moncton, he joined Baie-Comeau and tallied 108 points finishing third in league scoring. His first taste of professional hockey came the following year with a Division 2 team before he began his two year stint with Djugarden IF of the Swedish Elite League.

Thoresen joined the Oilers from the European ranks in 2006-07 and appeared in 68 games with the club making his NHL debut during the Oilers opener on October 5, 2006.
