Kassian tallied 15 goals and 34 points through 59 games before play was paused in mid-March.
The big guy matched his career high in goals from last year and likely would set a new best in the team's remaining 11 games should regular-season play resume. As usual, Kassian has continued to provide muscle on a line with superstar Connor McDavid in dishing out 157 hits, which ranks 33rd in the league despite the fact he's missed 12 games due to suspension (nine) and injury (three). The 29-year-old carries some risk due to his undisciplined play at times, but those in deeper formats that count hits have gotten some decent value from the oft-maligned winger.
Kassian dished an assist, three hits and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.
Kassian set up Connor McDavid's goal at 18:23 of the second period. After some time away from the top line, Kassian returned to that role Wednesday. He's up to 34 points, 99 shots, 157 hits and 69 PIM through 59 appearances in 2019-20. As long as he remains on McDavid's wing, he could be worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.
Kassian notched an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Kassian received a seven-game ban for kicking the Lightning's Erik Cernak on Feb. 13.

Kassian will have an in-person hearing with the Department of Player Safety, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Kassian was seen kicking Tampa Bay's Erik Cernak in the chest with the blade of his skate, which the league will certainly have something to say about. Additional factors at play are the fact that Kassian wasn't penalized on the play and was suspended only a month ago for his action against Calgary's Matthew Tkachuk, both of which could serve to lengthen his ban. By holding the hearing in person, the league can suspend the winger for more than five games, something fantasy owners should probably expect at this point.

He'll return to the lineup after a two-game suspension Wednesday versus the Flames.
Kassian received a two-game suspension after his actions in Saturday's contest against Calgary, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
It looks like Kassian will be starting his All-Star break a bit earlier than his teammates.

The Oilers have just two games remaining before the break, so expect Kassian to return on Jan. 29 against none other than the Flames.
