The Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday assigned center Anton Lander to the Oklahoma City Barons.

Lander was recalled by Edmonton on Jan. 31 but has been sidelined a month with a broken foot after appearing in four games with the Oilers. In 39 games this season with the Barons Lander has scored 10 points, including three goals.

The Oilers’ second-round draft choice in 2009, selected 40th overall, Lander has played in 60 games the past two seasons with the Barons after playing four seasons in the elite league in Sweden, his home country.

The Barons next game is Wednesday night at San Antonio.
