It has been a horrible fantasy season for Lander who had six goals and 20 points in 38 NHL games last season. This year has been a far different story as he has now played in 22 games. He is also a minus-six. If he has been in your fantasy lineup all season, our condolences to your team.

Anton Lander has yet to garner a point through 17 games this season.

Well that sure isn't going to help your fantasy squad. Lander had six goals and 20 points in 38 games last season and it was thought he could improve on that this season but that is not the case. "Definitely, it’s a really frustrating time right now," Lander said Friday. "I’m trying to work extra every day, trying to do those little extra things in practice every day, work on those shots, work on those tips, work in those tight places, and hopefully, it’ll come soon." If he is still on your active roster, you are not paying attention.

Anton Lander played 14:26 on Saturday after coach Todd McLellan sat him for most of the final two periods Thursday.

Lander has yet to pick up a point this season so if his defensive play is lackluster, then he'll sit. "The message has been sent to Anton ...this is a poke in the ribs for him," said McLellan. "I’ve told him how much I appreciate his game and the details he brings to the table (defensively) but it’s only effective when he’s doing that." He was minus-one Saturday.

Anton Lander is without a point this season but coach Todd McLellan knows he is contributing to the squad.

"You have to watch Anton fairly closely to understand his contributions," McLellan said. "He scored three goals one game in camp, but he’s not that kind of player, consistently. You have to look at his faceoffs, his work on the penalty-kill. You’re not driving home at night, getting all excited about Anton or the smoothness to his game, but you appreciate the details to his game and he’s one of the few guys who is vocal all the time on the ice, and you like that." He is also a minus-two so we will not recommend him.
