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

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
