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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
