Anton Lander

Oilers' Lander (Shoulder) Skates Monday

News: Anton Lander (shoulder) was on the ice Monday sporting a yellow non-contact jersey, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Anton Lander remains out with a shoulder injury he suffered last Wednesday against the Bruins, but his presence on the ice Monday indicates he is progressing towards a return. He will probably need to get in a full-contact practice or two before returning to the ice, but Tuesday's game can likely be ruled out. His next chance to return will come Friday against the Blackhawks.

Anton Lander

Oilers Place Lander On IR

News: Anton Lander (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Analysis: The transaction guarantees that Anton Lander will miss at least the Oilers' next three games, as he's not eligible to come off IR until Feb. 26. The team has yet to provide a projected timetable for Lander's return, so there's a possibility his absence could drag into March or even beyond. With Lander now off the 23-man roster, the Oilers were able to open up a spot for AHL Oklahoma City blueliner Jordan Oesterle.

Oilers' Lander Departs With Shoulder Injury

News: Anton Lander suffered a shoulder injury in Wednesday's game and will not return.
Analysis: It's not clear exactly what type of injury Anton Lander is dealing with, but the setback puts into question his availability for Edmonton's next game Friday.

Anton Lander

Oilers' Lander Nets Game-Winner

News: Anton Lander tallied the game-winning goal 1:47 into overtime Thursday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Anton Lander has delivered goals in back-to-back games and is quietly clipping along at a half-point-per-game pace. A de facto replacement for the since reassigned Leon Draisaitl, Lander has provided a significant upgrade to the Oilers' third line. He should be on strong footing for a permanent stay with the parent club going forward.

Anton Lander

Lander's Big Game Lifts Oilers

News: Anton Lander scored the game-winning goal -- his first tally of the year -- and had the primary assists on Edmonton's other two goals in Thursday's 3-2 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: He drove the offense in this one, which has to be pretty unexpected from a guy who entered play with 12 points in 105 career games. But he does now have seven points in 12 games this season, which is a fairly respectable stat that should make deep-league fantasy owners take a look at the 23-year-old Swede.

Anton Lander

Oilers' Lander: Three-Game Assist Streak

News: Anton Lander picked up a power-play assist and logged 13:10 of ice time in Friday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Anton Lander has been a more than adequate lineup replacement as the third-line center in place of the struggling Leon Draisaitl, who was demoted to juniors last weekend. He's now picked up assists in three consecutive games while working alongside Matt Fraser and Teddy Purcell.

Anton Lander

Oilers' Lander Recalled From AHL

News: Anton Lander was recalled from AHL Oklahoma City on Thursday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: The former second-round pick has enjoyed a good deal of success at Oklahoma City this season, notching nine goals and 22 assists in 29 games thus far. He's received the call to help the Oilers' 27th-ranked scoring offense, though it's uncertain how much Anton Lander will play immediately upon his return to Edmonton.

Anton Lander

Oilers' Send Lander Back To AHL

News: Anton Lander was sent back to Oklahoma City after Sunday's game versus the Stars, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: Anton Lander only played one game in his most recent recall and was a minus-2 to go along with six shots. Apparently that wasn't good enough to stick around.

12/19/2014

Anton Lander, C, EDM

Anton Lander

Oilers Call Up Lander

News: Anton Lander was recalled from AHL Oklahoma City on Friday.
Analysis: With the Oilers' offense in the midst of a deep swoon, Anton Lander could get the opportunity to showcase his scoring chops. He netted eight goals and 19 assists over his 26 games with Oklahoma City.

Anton Lander

Lander Signs One-Year Deal With Edmonton

News: Anton Lander signed a one-year $600,000 contract with the Oilers on Monday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Anton Lander had some thoughts about playing in Sweden next season but the one-way contract put that idea to bed. Lander will compete for the final pairing on the Oilers defense in training camp.

Anton Lander

Oilers Assign Lander To AHL Oklahoma City

News: Anton Landers was sent back to AHL Oklahoma City on Sunday, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports.
Analysis: Anton Lander will join five others being sent back to AHL Oklahoma City on Sunday. He will join a team in a playoff push and get some extra work in. He will make a run at the NHL roster again next season.

Anton Lander

Oilers Recall Lander

News: Anton Lander was recalled from AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
Analysis: With Sam Gagner slowed by an ankle injury following Tuesday's game against the Wild, Anton Lander will join the Oilers as insurance in the event Gagner's unable to play Thursday. If Gagner is indeed out Thursday, Lander would have a good shot at claiming a top-six role in the short-term, giving him some value in deeper leagues.

Anton Lander

Oilers Assign Lander To Oklahoma City

News: Anton Lander was sent back down to the AHL on Monday, according to the Oilers' official site.
Analysis: The Oilers chose to keep top prospect Oscar Klefbom on the roster over Anton Lander, who will resume his captaincy on the Barons. Lander was a second-round pick by Edmonton in 2010, so he still has a future, but more than likely as a bottom-pairing D-man.

Anton Lander

Oilers Recall Lander From AHL Oklahoma City

News: Anton Lander was recalled from AHL Oklahoma City on Saturday on an emergency basis.
Analysis: The Oilers just want a little depth up front for the weekend and will keep Anton Lander up as insurance. It is not yet known as to whether or not he will actually see any ice time.

1/4/2014

Anton Lander

Oilers Reassign Lander

News: Anton Lander was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Saturday.
Analysis: Anton Lander served as a healthy scratch Friday following Mark Arcobello's (ribs) return to the ice. With Arcobello set to assume his spot in the lineup on a full-time basis moving forward, the Oilers decided it was best for Lander to play regularly in the minors.

Anton Lander

Oilers Recall Lander

News: Anton Lander was recalled from AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
Analysis: With Will Acton contributing a meager three points in 23 games this season, the Oilers recalled Anton Lander with the hope that he'd help bolster the team's attack. Lander appeared in just one game between his two call-ups earlier this season.

10/31/2013

Anton Lander, C, EDM

Anton Lander

Oilers Recall Lander

News: The Oilers recalled Anton Lander from AHL Oklahoma City on Thursday.
Analysis: Anton Lander has suited up for just one game for the Oilers this season, in which he skated 14:07 and failed to record a point. He has two goals and four assists in eight games for AHL Oklahoma City to date.

10/29/2013

Anton Lander, C, EDM

Anton Lander

Oilers Send Lander To AHL

News: Anton Lander was assigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
Analysis: Anton Lander only played in one game while up with the Oilers and saw 14:07 of ice time. He will return to AHL Oklahoma City and be available for the call again if needed this season.

Anton Lander, C, EDM

Anton Lander

Oilers Recall Lander From AHL Oklahoma City

News: The Oilers have recalled Anton Lander from AHL Oklahoma City on Sunday.
Analysis: With Tyler Pitlick suffering a knee injury Saturday, the Oilers are in need of an extra forward. Anton Lander has two goals and four assists through eight games for the Barons but his role with Edmonton is expected to be minor. How long he stays will likely be dependent on the extent of Pitlick's injury.

Oilers' Lander Gets Cut

News: Anton Lander was re-assigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Tuesday, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Anton Lander didn't have to pass through waivers in order for the Oilers to send him to Oklahoma City, which likely weighed heavily into the decision. The 22-year-old scored one point in 11 games for the Oilers last season.

Oilers' Assign Lander To AHL

News: Anton Lander was assigned to the AHL on Thursday, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: Anton Lander had one assist in four games for the Oilers this season after scoring two goals and six points in 56 games last season. Needless to say offense is not his thing.

Anton Lander

Oilers Recall Lander

News: The Oilers have recalled Anton Lander from AHL Oklahoma City, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Anton Lander is coming off a six-point effort (including three goals) in Saturday 7-3 win over Rockford, but with the Oilers, he slots in as a depth forward, at least for now.
