Anton Lander shot lights out in Oklahoma City this week and the Oilers were paying attention. He joined recent recalls Brad Hunt and Oscar Klefbom in the NHL (with Brandon Davidson heading back down). In junior, Kyle Platzer continues to roll and Liam Coughlin caught fire in the BCJHL.

  • Anton Lander had a terrific week. Good to see him get a chance.
  • Brad Hunt certainly did enough to earn the recall during his time in OKC.

        unreal how consistently awful Bouchard has been. The scout that drafted him is for sure fired with the “forensic” audit. Or does that include Chabot ?

        The CHL draft picks look pretty good aside from the goalie.

      • Oilers G- Nations Poet Laureate

        I wonder with the troubles that the KHL is having if it will push Horak to potentially looking to return to NA to play hockey.

        I know the AHL is full of upcoming centres but Horak has shown the ability to score/defend at the AHL level already (had a good stint last year with the Barons).

        Depending on what happens with Williams and Lander he would be a good fit as the Oilers AHL team 1/2 C next year. That’s if the Oilers still see him as a prospect.

      • Oilers G- Nations Poet Laureate

        “Anton Lander shot lights out in Oklahoma City this week and the Oilers were paying attention”

        That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard! The oilers paying attention, haha they wouldn’t pay attention to a flying pig juggling chainsaws!

        • Oilers G- Nations Poet Laureate

          Don’t you ever get tired of going to work and getting paid every day?

          Same thing. Hush Scrub. Lowetide is one of the better writers here…and correct me if I am wrong, but he gets PAID* to write blogs here.

      • TheChamp

        I was just wondering if anyone could tell me why Jason Williams name is never even mentioned in getting a call up from OKC? He is a center, consistently one of the top scorers and is a veteran player kind of seems like something that the oilers are looking for, at least very short term. I don’t know much about the player so any insight would be greatly appreciated.

        • Oilers G- Nations Poet Laureate

          He is an older version of Arcobello. 34 years old. Not much offensive upside at the NHL level of play. Pretty sure that the Oilers know what they have.

        • YFC Prez

          I’m also curious and would like to add to this:

          Williams signed a 1 year contract with the Barons, not a 2 way with the oilers. Since he is signed to the AHL team that happens to be the oilers farm team can they call him up anytime they wish. And is he available to sign with other NHL teams or just the oilers?

          I’m just wondering how this process works. Do waivers apply? (not that I’m really concerned about losing the player)

          • oilredemption

            The way it would work is; the Oilers would have to sign him to a contract of their own.

            He is also free to sign with any other NHL team.

            I think the only caveat is it has to be a one way, but I am not sure on that part.

        “Brad Hunt certainly did enough to earn the recall during his time in OKC.”

        I don’t think so. Neal Livingston on Tend the Farm still describes Hunt as chaos in his own zone.

        • YFC Prez

          I didn’t post this comment, what a loser. As per an earlier article, I stand by what I have been saying for awhile. Oilers Nation is nothing but a bunch of preppie losers who cant wait for their next fix of winning.
          All you morons should give thanks to guys like MacT and Kevin Lowe for putting Edmonton on the map in the first place, or have most of you frgotton your history.

          Give it some time, these fellas know how to win, They’ve done in BEFORE.

          Kevin will remain regardless of attempts by ON.
          The fan article in the Sun will amount to good reading.Most of the management will be retained if only to oversee the downtown development. Some may well take employment from others to become property managers or caretakers. To really bring ATTENTION to this Management Group, bring Justin Bieber to Edmonton.He is a specialist in EGG TOSSING. A few Bieber PICKLED EGGS in the direction of Oiler Management may be successful?
