EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers recalled centre Chris VandeVelde on Friday from the American Hockey League.

VandeVelde has two goals and 10 points in 38 games for the Oklahoma City Barons. The 25-year-old had a goal in five NHL games last season for the Oilers.

Centre Anton Lander was added to the injured reserve Thursday after blocking a shot with his foot during Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Dallas.

Lander has one point in four games this season for Edmonton (4-3-3).

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
