Anton Lander is in what's turning into a fierce fight for center spots in Edmonton.
Lander had 18 goals and 52 points in 48 AHL games last season, but he hasn't been nearly as effective offensively at the NHL level and isn't likely to win the second-line center opening. However, Lander might be able to make the team as Edmonton's third-line center. That's a job Oilers GM Craig MacTavish thought might end up being Lander's before training camp started, but Bogdan Yakimov has forced himself into the conversation. Sep 26 - 10:33 AM

The Edmonton Oilers are looking for help on the third line and GM Craig MacTavish thinks that Anton Lander and/or Mark Arcobello are capable of doing the job.

MacTavish is looking for the Oilers to go with three scoring lines and while he is happy with the top line of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, as well as the second unit with David Perron, Sam Gagner and likely whoever they select at three this year (Sam Bennett or Sam Reinhart as defenseman Aaron Ekblad will probably be gone at this point), they need someone to play with Nail Yakupov. Lander had only one assist in 27 games with the Oilers in 2013-14 but did manage 18 goals and 52 points in 46 AHL games.

The Edmonton Oilers sent Anton Lander to the AHL's Oklahoma City Barons on Sunday.

A JFYI as he holds little-to-no fantasy value. Jim Matheson goes as far as to say that this is a sign that Edmonton should trade Lander.

Coach Dallas Eakins was impressed by the play of Anton Lander on Saturday while giving him only 10 shifts.

Lander was recalled on Thursday from Oklahoma City of the AHL where he has nine goals and 15 points in 18 games. "He hasn't made any mistakes, we're going to rely on him for the penalty kill and on faceoffs he's helped us being a left-handed shot," Eakins said. Lander has no value in fantasy hockey at this time.
