Edmonton Oilers recall centre Anton Lander from AHL's Oklahoma City Barons

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers recalled Anton Lander from the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League on Sunday.

The six-foot 194-pound centre has eight goals and 11 assists in 45 games with the Barons this season, including a career-high six-point game (three goals, three assists) on Saturday against Rockford.

Lander has one assist in four games with the Oilers in 2013.

He blocked a shot against Dallas on Feb. 6 and missed the next 16 games with a broken foot.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
