Hope For Edmonton

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey, Hope #2: That Mark Arcobello and Anton Lander pick up where they left off in the AHL. Both Arcobello and Lander are seasoned AHLers now, and both have aced almost every test that league has thrown at them. If this were Detroit, we might be going on about how sage management had wisely let them get over ripe on the farm (though thatâ...

In defense of Anton Lander

Today, the Edmonton Oilers announced that they have agreed to terms with Anton Lander on a one-year contract extension. The 23-year-old centerman spent the 2013-14 season shuttling between a bottom-line role at the NHL level and heading up a scoring line for the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL.  Another case of a player that's too good for the farm system, but struggles to...

Oilers agree to terms with Anton Lander

The Edmonton Oilers announced they have agreed to terms with centre Anton Lander on a one-year contract extension. Lander, 23, split the season between the Oilers and their American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons.

With Jesse Joensuu out, Edmonton Oilers give Anton Lander longer look-see

With Jesse Joensuu walking out of Rexall Place in a medical boot on Monday, odds are good Anton Lander will be staying for a while. The Oilers forward was called up from the Oklahoma City Barons for the recent four-game trip, and for a while Sunday, it appeared as though he scored his first goal of the season in a 2-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes. The goal was later awarded...

Richard Cloutier: Nurse Addition Changes the Dynamic in Edmonton

Not enough forwards. I said that over, and over, and over before the NHL draft. And I am right: The Oilers as an organization lack quality prospect forwards. Perhaps their best "prospects" up front are Magnus Paajarvi and Anton Lander. Lander will be the 4th line center for the Oilers this season, and I received a text message from a source last night suggesting Paajarvi...

Richard Cloutier: Horcoff Out; Paajarvi Out; Lander in; Petrell Has a Sore Paw

As I suspected, Shawn Horcoff was injured by the perfectly innocent hit from behind provided by Phoenix winger Shane Doan. Not only should have Doan received a penalty for that hit, but it should have been sent to the league for review. Absolute cheap-shot. Anton Lander has been called up and will play for Horcoff tonight. In order for the Oilers to make roster room, it was necessary...

Ducks Do The Hunting

Oilers lose 5-0 to Ducks Not much was going right for the Oilers Friday night. The only goal scored was one by Anton Lander, but it didn’t count because the referee had lost sight of the free puck and whistled the play down just before Lander hammered the puck in. Nikolai Khabibulin got the starting role for his birthday present, but after allowing 3 goals on 14 shots, Devan Dubnyk...

G34 Wild at Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers have been hitting line drives lately, but they've been loud outs instead of doubles into the gap. The Minnesota Wild are "death to fun" and are experiencing a market correction. This isn't exactly "guaranteed win night" but Edmonton has a good chance should they play with the kind of effort we saw the last two games.Coach Renney has...
