Edmonton Oilers center Anton Lander has a broken foot and will be out of action for a month, according to a tweet from Sportsnet's Mark Spector.

Lander suffered the injury in Edmonton's 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars on Wednesday. Lander took a puck off his ankle early in the first period and did not return to the game. According to Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, Lander was seen on crutches on the stands later in the game. Edmonton has already lost centers Shawn Horcuff and Eric Belanger to injuries this season, leaving them with a hole at the position. Lander is in his second NHL season with Edmonton, and has one assist through four games so far.
