  • Oilers' Zack Kassian: Inks one-year deal with Edmonton

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/19/16) Kassian signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Oilers on Thursday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    The Oilers acquired Kassian from Montreal in exchange for Ben Scrivens on Dec. 28 of last year. The 6-foot-3 grinder drew into 36 games with Edmonton in 2015-16, notching eight points (three goals, five assists) and 114 PIM over that span. The 25-year-old winger's knack for spending extended time in the sin bin will once again be the primary source of his fantasy value in 2016-17.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Nets three goals for Edmonton

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/16) Kassian had three goals and five assists for Edmonton this season.

    Kassian was brought in to be an agitator but also as someone who could spark the Oilers. That plan didn't come to fruition. His 114 PIM proved more bad than good and he will have to prove to the Oilers in training camp that he deserves a spot on the team next season.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Racks up 24 PIM in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/16) Kassian's boarding penalty Thursday against the Sharks led to a game misconduct and 24 total penalty minutes.

    A first-round pick in 2009, Kassian's never developed the offensive touch to go with that billing, but he's now cleared 100 PIM in only 31 games for Edmonton this year. That physicality is the main source of his fantasy value.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Nets goal in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/16) Kassian recorded a goal on three shots, a hit and a plus-1 rating in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Kings.

    After not seeing NHL action at all this season until Jan. 14, Kassian now has three goals and two assists in those 16 games played. He's also added in 45 hits and a whopping 50 PIM in that span. While he doesn't add in tons of offense, the 25-year-old does have some value if you need someone to rack up the hits and PIM.

    Oilers' Zack Kassian: Returning to action Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/16) As expected, Kassian will play Saturday against the Avalanche.

    Kassian's best asset is likely his hitting ability, as the big-bodied forward has racked up 42 hits in just 13 games with the Oilers this season. He likely won't be in many fantasy lineups, however, as he can't be relied on as a consistent source of offensive production, having tallied just 20 points in 55 games over the past two seasons. The former first-round pick will likely slot back into the lineup as a bottom-six forward Saturday against Colorado.

  • 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
    Kassian (back) is not with the Canucks on their current four-game road trip, the Province reports.Coach Willie Desjardins didn't completely rule Kassian out for the entire trip, but he did confirm that the forward won't play either Monday against the Blues or Tuesday against the Preds.
    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.
