Oilers' Zack Kassian: Grabs helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian recorded an assist and six hits in Monday's 4-3 triple overtime loss to the Jets in Game 4.

Kassian was effective once he was bumped up to a top-six assignment, notching a goal and an assist in the last two games of the series. The 30-year-old winger battled injuries throughout 2020-21, which limited him to five points, 73 hits and a minus-4 rating in 27 regular-season contests. His fantasy value in 2021-22 is highly dependent on his role -- he can help if he plays alongside a superstar, but he's unlikely to produce often in a bottom-six capacity.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Lights lamp Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian scored a goal on two shots, logged three hits and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets in Game 3.

Kassian converted on a pass from Leon Draisaitl at 18:17 of the second period to give the Oilers a 3-1 lead. The goal was Kassian's first point in three playoff outings after he missed the last 11 games of the regular season with a lower-body injury. The winger mustered only five points with 73 hits in 27 regular-season contests, but he saw top-six usage in Sunday's game.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (lower body) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 versus Winnipeg, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.

Kassian missed the final 11 games of the regular season with a lower-body injury, but he's been skating for nearly two weeks, so he should be close to 100 percent for Wednesday's contest. The 30-year-old winger has picked up five points and 73 hits through 27 contests this campaign.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (lower body) has begun skating on his own, but he isn't expected to return during the regular season, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Kassian's clearly making progress in his recovery, but he shouldn't be expected to return until Edmonton's first-round playoff series at the earliest. Either way, the 30-year-old winger has only picked up five points in 27 games this season, so he won't garner much attention in postseason pools.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Lands on LTIR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Monday.

Kassian was injured against Montreal on April 21 and was labeled week-to-week. Now it appears the 30-year-old winger will miss the remainder of the regular season. He has five points in 23 games this season, and it's unclear if he could be back in the lineup during the postseason.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Week-to-week with lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Kassian could be in danger of missing the rest of the regular season. Either way, the physical winger has only notched five points through 27 games this season, so his absence will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Facing extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Dave Tippett, Kassian (undisclosed) will be out "for a while," Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Kassian sustained an undisclosed injury during Wednesday's loss to Montreal and appears to be facing a lengthy absence. The big-bodied winger has only notched five points in 27 games this campaign, so his absence shouldn't impact many, if any fantasy lineups down the stretch.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Injured early Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (undisclosed) won't return to Wednesday's game versus the Canadiens, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Kassian appeared to injure himself when he missed a check in the first period. The hard-hitting winger has five points and 73 hits through 26 contests this season. More information on the 30-year-old's status could surface after the game.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Working in limited role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian has worked in a bottom-six role since returning from an upper-body injury March 17.

Kassian had a goal and an assist in his first two games back, but he's gone 11 straight outings without getting on the scoresheet. The physical winger has just five points to go with 73 hits and 15 PIM in 26 contests overall. As long as he's in a limited role, his fantasy appeal will remain low.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Adds helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian registered an assist and four hits in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Jets.

Kassian set up the second of Connor McDavid's two goals Thursday, which was the game-winner. The 30-year-old Kassian has a goal and an assist in two outings since returning from an upper-body injury. The winger has collected five points, 36 hits and 11 PIM in 15 games overall.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Nets goal in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (upper body) scored a goal, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Flames.

Kassian missed 17 games with the injury he sustained in a fight with Erik Gudbranson on Feb. 8. The 30-year-old Kassian put up a pretty typical stat line in his return. The winger has four points, 13 shots on net, 32 hits and 11 PIM through 14 contests this year. He'll likely see third-line usage and provide sandpaper down the lineup for the Oilers.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Off IR, expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (upper body) was activated from injured reserve, indicating that he'll play in Wednesday's game against the Flames.

Kassian will offer physicality to the Oilers' lineup as they prepare for another installment of the Battle of Alberta. The 30-year-old hasn't played since Feb 8. He recorded three points and 29 hits through 13 games before this injury.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Could play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

If Kassian (upper body) is cleared by Edmonton's training staff, he could return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against Calgary, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Kassian's status against the Flames will likely boil down to a game-time decision. He picked up three points in 13 games before missing extended time with an upper-body injury.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Remains unfit to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (upper body) won't play Friday against Ottawa, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Kassian has been skating with his teammates since Tuesday, so he's clearly making progress in his recovery, but the Oilers have yet to establish a definite timetable for his return. The big-bodied winger will need to be activated off injured reserve before rejoining the lineup, so look for that announcement to precede his return to game action.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Skating with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kassian (upper body) skated with the Oilers on Tuesday but won't be ready for Wednesday's game versus the Senators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Kassian is closing in on a return after missing the last 13 games. The 30-year-old posted just three points through the first 13 games this year while averaging 12:26 of ice time. His next chance to take the ice is Friday's rematch against the Senators. The Oilers have been blending their lines lately, so it's tough to project where Kassian will slot in.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 9, 2021 11:08 AM
Oilers' Zack Kassian: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 8, 2021 08:48 PM
Oilers' Zack Kassian: Exits Monday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Oilers' Zack Kassian: Buries equalizer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

January 25, 2021 01:48 AM
Oilers' Zack Kassian: Registers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
