  • Oilers' Zack Kassian: Point streak in rearview mirror

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/1/17) Kassian recorded just two shots through 15:27 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Minnesota.

    That five-game point streak is firmly in the rearview mirror, even though Tuesday's game saw him take up much more than his season average ice time of 12:01. If you're rostering Kassian, the point streak was gravy. There's little reason to expect that his production can continue at that level. He has 15 points in 49 games this season. The point streak caught him up to about the point pace that should be expected over the course of the season.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Nabs third goal of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/17) Though he saw just 10:55 of ice time, Kassian posted his third goal of the season in Wednesday's win over Florida.

    That's got to be a relief for Kassian, who scored two goals in the first six games of the season and hasn't seen the back of the net since. With an ice time average of 11:59 and only 12 points on the year, his utility in most fantasy formats is limited to hits (97) and penalty minutes (72).

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Leaves his mark in win over Arizona

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/16) Kassian collected two assists and finished with four hits and 12 PIM during Wednesday's win over the Coyotes.

    With just nine points -- two goals -- through 32 games, Kassian's fantasy value lies in his willingness to spend time in the penalty box. He has 57 PIM for the year, and despite some opportunities to skate in a more offensively inclined role, the 25-year-old winger looks locked into fourth-line duty for the foreseeable future. It hinders his fantasy upside.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Nearly snaps slump

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/16) Kassian recorded seven minutes in penalties, a shot, and a minus-1 rating in Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Kassian sniped a goal into the upper corner during the second period, but on review, he was just barely offside entering the zone. That goal would have snapped a 22-game stretch without a goal. He's tough to roster because he's not scoring and because his ice time is dwindling. In the last four games, he's been north of 10 minutes just once.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Ready to play when called upon

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/16) Kassian has fully recovered from the undisclosed injury that has forced him to miss the Oilers' last three games, and could return to Edmonton's lineup as soon as Sunday against the Rangers.

    Head coach Todd McLellan hasn't announced whether Kassian will be in the lineup for Sunday's contest, but the 6-foot-3 forward will be an option if the bench boss wants to add some size up front. The 2009 first-round pick has tallied four points (two goals, two assists) while averaging 12:16 of ice time over 12 games this season.

  • April 6, 2015: Canucks' Kassian Not Practicing
    Kassian (back) hasn't resumed practicing with the Canucks, Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver Province reports.Kassian suffered the back injury March 17 and has been limited ever since. At this point, it appears highly doubtful he'll play again during the regular season, and his status for the first round of the playoffs could be in jeopardy as well.
    March 30, 2015: Canucks' Kassian Remains Out

    March 25, 2015: Canucks' Kassian Remains Out
    Kassian (back) reportedly suffered a minor setback while skating last week, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.With Kassian evidently not yet close to 100 percent, his status moving forward remains cloudy as Thursday's game against the Avs approaches.
    March 24, 2015: Canucks' Kassian Out Again Tuesday
    Kassian (back) will not play Tuesday against the Jets, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.Kassian didn't even take part in the morning skate with the Canucks, so it wouldn't appear that he's closing in on a return quite yet. He'll miss his fifth straight game Tuesday, and it looks like he could be on course to miss time beyond that.
