Kassian picked up an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights. The physical winger is up to 26 points (15 goals, 11 helpers) in 76 games this season. He didn't have a hit Monday, staying at 190 checks and 100 PIM while raising his shots total to 107 on the year. A spot on Connor McDavid's line brings Kassian much more fantasy value than he would normally attract away from a world-class star.
Kassian scored on his only shot to go with seven PIM in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Kings. Don't look now, but Edmonton's resident tough guy has crafted a four-game point streak comprised of three goals and an assist. He's currently skating with Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, which would qualify as a dream assignment for any player. We say take full advantage of Kassian as a low-cost fantasy option as long as he's in such a cushy role.
Kassian provided an assist in Monday's 3-2 overtime win versus the Rangers. Kassian has been on a run with four goals and a helper in his last six games, while also collecting 13 hits and 14 shots in that span. Kassian is in the midst of his third 20--plus-point season, with 12 goals and nine assists over 66 games. He's seen some time on the top line with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, which is a position bound to generate some points for virtually any player.
Kassian netted his 11th goal of the season in a 4-3 win over the Sabres on Monday. Kassian's marker ignited a three-goal burst over the last 3:31 over the second period that carried the Oilers to the victory. The gritty winger added two hits and four shots in the contest. Kassian has 19 points in 63 outings this year, but his calling card is his 156 hits. He's on a three-game scoring streak, and as long as he occupies the right wing slot alongside Connor McDavid, Kassian is likely to see a boost in his offensive contributions.
Kassian scored a goal Saturday in a 5-2 loss to San Jose. It's been a largely forgettable season for the abrasive forward. But lately, Kassian is starting to show an offensive flair. He has put up nine points, including five goals, in his last 11 games. It's hard for us to think he can keep this up, but Kassian could provide fantasy value in deep formats.
