Jan 2 - 8:19 PM

Anton Lander has been called up by Edmonton.

He has nine goals and 31 points in 29 games with Oklahoma City in the AHL. Lander had six shots and a minus-2 rating in his 2014-15 debut with the Oilers on Dec. 21.
Jan 1 - 6:36 PM

Anton Lander has been sent to the minors.

Lander had a minus-two rating and logged 16:37 minutes in Edmonton's 6-5 shootout loss on Sunday. He took Leon Draisaitl's spot in the lineup for that game, but Draisaitl will probably be back on Tuesday.

Anton Lander will replace Leon Draisaitl on Sunday against Dallas.

The 23 year old Lander has 77 points in 103 career games in AHL Oklahoma City the last three seasons, however during that time he's scored just eight points in 94 games for the Oilers. He'll center Nail Yakupov and Tyler Pitlick on their third line tonight.

The Edmonton Oilers have recalled Anton Lander from Oklahoma City of the AHL.

Lander had 27 points in 26 AHL games before the recall. He has been an effective AHL player but has yet to prove himself at the NHL level. This could be the time he finally establishes himself in the show.

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.

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.

Anton Lander has inked a one-year deal with the Edmonton Oilers.

Lander had an assist in 27 games with the Edmonton Oilers in 2013-14. He also had 18 goals and 52 points in 46 AHL matches.

Anton Lander will serve as the Oilers' third-line center on Thursday.

Lander has an assist in 25 games this season. He will slide into that role because Boyd Gordon (shoulder) is done for the season.

Anton Lander has been summoned by the Edmonton Oilers.

Lander has 18 goals and 48 points in 43 AHL games this season. The 22 year old has also played in 12 NHL games in 2013-14, but wasn't able to record a point.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 06:20:00 PM

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.

Anton Lander was a healthy scratch on Sunday.

Just an FYI as Lander has no fantasy value. He has only two shots on goal and no points in five games.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 07:52:00 AM

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.

The Edmonton Oilers have promoted Anton Lander.

Lander has nine goals and 15 points in 18 AHL games this season. He's not expected to have much, if any, fantasy value during this NHL stint.
