    • Coyotes Cut Kassian

      News: Matt Kassian has been released from his professional tryout with the Coyotes, USA Today reports.
      Analysis: Matt Kassian apparently didn't do enough to stand out during training camp, and last season's pathetic total of two points in 33 games with the Senators wasn't going to help him in his efforts to win a roster spot with Arizona. He may have to settle for an AHL deal before earning his way back to the NHL.
    • Sens' Kassian Brings Physical Presence

      News: Matt Kassian finished the season with one goal, one assist, and 63 PIM in 33 games.
      Analysis: He didn't add much offensively, and suited up for less than half the team's games this year, but Matt Kassian still managed to create an impact with his fists. He doesn't play enough to warrant drafting him next season, but he could be valuable in deep leagues when it's confirmed he will be in the lineup.
    • Empty Net Offers No Challenge For Sens' Kassian

      News: Matt Kassian scored his first goal of the season into an empty net with 12 seconds remaining Tuesday against the Islanders. He also racked up seven PIM and went plus-1.
      Analysis: Matt Kassian had previously compiled exactly one point -- an assist -- in 32 games this season, and just three goals (and 170 PIM) in his first 75 NHL games. This was his first shot on goal in a game since before the Olympics. Safe to say, he doesn't own much offensive talent. But at least he can put the puck in the net when there's no goalie to get in the way.
    • Sens' Kassian Struggling To Crack Lineup

      News: Matt Kassian is not expected to play Monday against the Lightning.
      Analysis: Matt Kassian hasn't been in the lineup since March 10, and will probably spend most of the team's remaining games watching from the press box as well. He has provided 34 PIM in his 28 appearances this season, but he simply doesn't play often enough to warrant picking up in most fantasy leagues.
    • Sens' Kassian Not Playing Much

      News: Matt Kassian has one assist and 32 PIM through 26 games this season.
      Analysis: He suits up for less than half of his team's games, but he can certainly provide some PIM in spot starts in deep fantasy leagues.
    • Sens' Kassian Providing Physical Presence

      News: Matt Kassian has recorded one assist and 27 PIM in 22 games this season.
      Analysis: The gritty winger has suited up for less than half the team's games this year, but can provide some PIM for fantasy teams in the deepest leagues. However, with the return of fellow tough guy Chris Neil (lower body) looming, Matt Kassian could see his playing time cut again.
    • Sens' Kassian Playing On Third Line

      News: Matt Kassian is expected to skate on the third line Thursday against the Panthers.
      Analysis: Matt Kassian will play alongside Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Erik Condra on the Sens' checking line. The gritty winger is still pointless in 14 games this season, but has contributed 17 PIM.
    • Sens' Kassian Still Scoreless

      News: Matt Kassian has yet to register a point in 11 games this season.
      Analysis: The gritty winger has never been productive offensively, but with only 12 PIM to date, his value as a fighter has diminished significantly from previous seasons. He rarely gets into the lineup, and isn't a viable option in most leagues at this point.
    • Sens' Kassian Not Expected To Play Friday

      News: Matt Kassian isn't expected to suit up for Friday's season opener against the Sabres, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
      Analysis: Matt Kassian was the extra forward at practice Tuesday, so in all likelihood he'll be watching Friday's game from the press box. He is expected to be in the lineup Saturday, however, when the Sens travel to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs in the rivals' first meeting of the season.
    • Kassian In Ottawa Lineup For Game 2 Loss

      News: Matt Kassian replaced Cory Conacher in Ottawa's lineup for Friday's Game 2 loss to Montreal in their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal Series.
      Analysis: Matt Kassian presumably was in the lineup to combat against any type of retaliation Ottawa was expecting from Thursday's Game 1 and the Eric Gryba hit on Lars Eller. Kassian was on the ice to start the game but played only 10:30 in the contest with no fights and two penalty minutes and five hits.
