The Oilers placed Kassian (upper body) on injured reserve Tuesday. Kassian is considered week-to-week with an upper-body injury, so this move was expected. Alex Chiasson is expected to get the first crack at taking Kassian's spot in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Senators.
Kassian (upper body) is considered week-to-week. Kassian is still undergoing further evaluation, but at this point it appears as though the big-bodied winger is likely facing an extended absence. Alex Chiasson is expected to get the first crack at replacing Kassian, who's picked up three points in 13 games this campaign, in the Oilers' lineup.
Kassian (upper body) left Monday's game against Ottawa and will not return. Kassian skated just 33 seconds in Monday's game before leaving after a fight with Senators blueliner Erik Gudbranson. The two teams will meet again Tuesday and it's unclear if Kassian will be able to dress.
Kassian scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs. Kassian struck at 11:12 of the third period to tie the game 3-3, but Auston Matthews untied it 2:25 later. The tally gives Kassian three points in eight contests. He's added 11 shots on goal, a minus-2 rating and 18 hits, although he failed to record a hit for the first time this year Thursday. More renowned for his physicality, Kassian doesn't have much appeal as a scorer in fantasy.
Kassian posted an assist and a team-high five hits in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Jets. Kassian was bumped down the third line, but he showed a little chemistry with Kyle Turris on the Oilers' second goal. Jesse Puljujarvi took Kassian's old spot on Connor McDavid's line. It's going to be tough to trust Kassian from a scoring standpoint when he's in the bottom six. The rowdy winger has two helpers, 17 hits and five shots on goal through six appearances.
