Barons center Anton Lander, who scored a franchise record six points in Oklahoma City's 7-3 win at Rockford Saturday night, has been named the American Hockey League Player of the Week.

Lander, who was recalled to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday, scored eight points last week. He also scored a goal in a shootout loss at Chicago and notched an assist in a win at Peoria.

“It's fun when you see a player have a big night,” said Barons coach Todd Nelson. “Over the years we've had a lot of players have big games. To set the (franchise) record says a lot.”

Lander, 21, started the season with Edmonton after the NHL lockout ended, but he was sidelined six weeks following a broken foot and was reassigned to OKC.
