Lander's Season Finished

The Swedish Elite League's regular season wrapped up on Friday and Anton Lander's season ended along with it. But Lander's last game of the year - and possibly his last ever with Timrå - was one to remember. Lander got an assist on the first goal of the game and then scored the game-winner in the third period to help Timrå to a 2-1 victory, and while that wasn't enough to get his team into the playoffs, it was enough to guarantee that they wouldn't need to play in the Relegation tournament (the Kvalserien). Lander ends the year with 11 goals and 15 assists in 49 games, as well as a -13 rating (+27 -40) and a 49.3% faceoff percentage. The Oilers will need to sign Lander to an entry-level contract before June 1st in order to retain his rights.

Kent Follows Robert Out the Door

Word today that Kent Nilsson, the Oilers' amateur scout in Europe since 1995-96, has left the organization. With his son Robert being bought out and many long-time employees being shoved out the door, Nilsson's departure shouldn't come as a big surprise. The most surprising part may be that it was his decision, though in fairness to Nilsson, the Oilers have drafted some very promising prospects out of Europe over the last few seasons including Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson, Anton Lander, Linus Omark, and Teemu "Has Derek's" Hartikainen.

Happy Birthday Anton Lander!

The Lamp turns 19 today. Hopefully the Oilers have called to wish him a Happy Birthday and told him what their plans were for him.

Lander a hero as Timrå makes playoffs

... with several more reasons to love Google Translator. "Timrå did the team was forced to in order to reach the playoffs. Medelpadingarna Luleå defeated by 1-0 after Anton Lander made the game only goal. Anders Lindbäck saved all 35 shots he got against him and was perhaps the biggest reason for the victory. We can also observe that HV71 is the series winner for the playoffs. "The first period was a dumb story, although both teams had several great chances to network. Luleå opened the match very well and poured shots of Anders Lindbäck in TIK-bin. Timrå'm up against the end of the period but then without being able to take the lead. "After 40 minutes played, it was still quite still in ödesmatchen between Luleå and Timrå. The second period was like the first speechless. But Luleå had the upper hand and shot the most clear shot on goal. "Six minutes into the last act came at last match the first goal and it was Timrå did. Laurent Meunier played forward Anton Lander, despite fierce guard could shoot the puck high into the net. Suddenly it became very urgent for Lulea that put it all forward. But Anders Lindbäck was absolutely incorruptible and stopped everything. Timrå won 1-0 and are ready for the playoffs."

Hope Here! Hope For Sale! Hope Here!

As they take those measures, they must also take time and care to develop the few truly bright prospects they do have on the horizon; defencemen Taylor Chorney and Jeff Petry and forwards Jordan Eberle, Linus Omark, Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson and Anton Lander.

Lander is Clutch

Oilers prospect Anton Lander has back-to-back game-winning goals for Timrå IK of the Swedish Elite League. His game winners allowed Timrå IK to win two games in a row for the first time all season. Lander is centering a line with Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson and Frenchman Laurent Meunier. I'm looking forward to a Harski - Lander - Mange line in the near future. EDIT: Commentor shep_ below says: he calls mps "mange" wich is a often used nickname for swedish men named magnus. when he refers to "måns", he means laurent meunier.
