Sens' Kassian Brings Physical Presence

News: Matt Kassian finished the season with one goal, one assist, and 63 PIM in 33 games.
Analysis: He didn't add much offensively, and suited up for less than half the team's games this year, but Matt Kassian still managed to create an impact with his fists. He doesn't play enough to warrant drafting him next season, but he could be valuable in deep leagues when it's confirmed he will be in the lineup.

Empty Net Offers No Challenge For Sens' Kassian

News: Matt Kassian scored his first goal of the season into an empty net with 12 seconds remaining Tuesday against the Islanders. He also racked up seven PIM and went plus-1.
Analysis: Matt Kassian had previously compiled exactly one point -- an assist -- in 32 games this season, and just three goals (and 170 PIM) in his first 75 NHL games. This was his first shot on goal in a game since before the Olympics. Safe to say, he doesn't own much offensive talent. But at least he can put the puck in the net when there's no goalie to get in the way.

Sens' Kassian Struggling To Crack Lineup

News: Matt Kassian is not expected to play Monday against the Lightning.
Analysis: Matt Kassian hasn't been in the lineup since March 10, and will probably spend most of the team's remaining games watching from the press box as well. He has provided 34 PIM in his 28 appearances this season, but he simply doesn't play often enough to warrant picking up in most fantasy leagues.

Matt Kassian

Sens' Kassian Not Playing Much

News: Matt Kassian has one assist and 32 PIM through 26 games this season.
Analysis: He suits up for less than half of his team's games, but he can certainly provide some PIM in spot starts in deep fantasy leagues.

Matt Kassian

Sens' Kassian Providing Physical Presence

News: Matt Kassian has recorded one assist and 27 PIM in 22 games this season.
Analysis: The gritty winger has suited up for less than half the team's games this year, but can provide some PIM for fantasy teams in the deepest leagues. However, with the return of fellow tough guy Chris Neil (lower body) looming, Matt Kassian could see his playing time cut again.

Matt Kassian

Sens' Kassian Playing On Third Line

News: Matt Kassian is expected to skate on the third line Thursday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Matt Kassian will play alongside Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Erik Condra on the Sens' checking line. The gritty winger is still pointless in 14 games this season, but has contributed 17 PIM.

12/3/2013

Matt Kassian, LW, ARI Sens' Kassian Still Scoreless

Matt Kassian

Sens' Kassian Still Scoreless

News: Matt Kassian has yet to register a point in 11 games this season.
Analysis: The gritty winger has never been productive offensively, but with only 12 PIM to date, his value as a fighter has diminished significantly from previous seasons. He rarely gets into the lineup, and isn't a viable option in most leagues at this point.

Matt Kassian

Sens' Kassian Not Expected To Play Friday

News: Matt Kassian isn't expected to suit up for Friday's season opener against the Sabres, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian was the extra forward at practice Tuesday, so in all likelihood he'll be watching Friday's game from the press box. He is expected to be in the lineup Saturday, however, when the Sens travel to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs in the rivals' first meeting of the season.

Kassian In Ottawa Lineup For Game 2 Loss

News: Matt Kassian replaced Cory Conacher in Ottawa's lineup for Friday's Game 2 loss to Montreal in their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal Series.
Analysis: Matt Kassian presumably was in the lineup to combat against any type of retaliation Ottawa was expecting from Thursday's Game 1 and the Eric Gryba hit on Lars Eller. Kassian was on the ice to start the game but played only 10:30 in the contest with no fights and two penalty minutes and five hits.

Sens To Dress Kassian For Flyers Game

News: Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said that he wants Matt Kassian's toughness in the lineup against Philadelphia on Saturday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: A move like this has all the makings of some "old time hockey" as the Senators head to the playoffs while the Flyers head home. The last time these two teams met, the Senators took offense to Philadelphia's Jay Rosehill and his over-aggressiveness. Matt Kassian will be out there to ensure the safety of his teammates, so expect to see some gloves and sticks on the ice during this one. Kassian's last notable game was a two-fight, 20-minutes-in-penalties extravaganza against Toronto back in the end of March and he's been mostly a healthy scratch since. If your league uses PIMs in scoring, Kassian makes for an awesome pickup for Saturday and possibly even Sunday.

Matt Kassian

Senators' Kassian May Sit Friday

News: Matt Kassian is expected to be a healthy scratch Friday due to the return of Milan Michalek.
Analysis: With Milan Michalek expected to return to the lineup Friday, it seems as if Matt Kassian will be the odd man out against the Devils.

Sens' Kassian Gets 20 PIMs Saturday

News: Matt Kassian fought twice in the first period and ended the game with 20 penalty minutes Saturday night.
Analysis: While that might be a boon in your penalties category, that time in the box meant he only saw 6:12 on ice Saturday against Toronto.

Sens Aquire Kassian

News: The Senators have acquired Matt Kassian from the Wild in exchange for a 2014 sixth-round draft pick, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian, who has recorded one goal and 12 penalty minutes in nine games with AHL Houston to date, will give the Sens' organization a little added toughness and depth at forward.

Wild's Kassian Clears Waivers

News: Matt Kassian has successfully cleared waivers, the Minneaplolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Wild cleared the roster spot for Jared Spurgeon, who was recently activated off the IR. Matt Kassian will now play for the AHL's Houston Aeros.

Wild's Kassian Placed On Waivers

News: Matt Kassian was placed on waivers by the Wild on Tuesday, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Jared Spurgeon (foot) activated from injured reserve prior to Tuesday's game, Matt Kassian was a natural choice for demotion having not appeared in any games this season. He'll have a better chance at more regular playing time with AHL Houston, assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Wild's Kassian Likely To Be Moved

News: Matt Kassian is likely to be traded or released after the Wild acquired Mike Rupp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian hasn't been active for a game yet this season, and the Wild don't need a second tough guy after the acquisition of Rupp, who offers more on offense.

Matt Kassian

Wild's Kassian Makes NHL Roster

News: Matt Kassian will begin the season on Minnesota's NHL roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian isn't on any of the top four lines, so he may struggle for ice time and be used in an enforcer role.

Wild Ink Kassian To Two-Year Deal

News: Matt Kassian (groin) agreed to a two-year, one-way deal with the Wild on Thursday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian only appeared in 24 games last season and averaged 5:33 minutes, finishing with two goals and 55 penalty minutes. A sports hernia ended his season in late March, but clearly Minnesota felt the 25-year-old winger was worth extending.

Wild's Kassian Out For Year

News: Matt Kassian is out for the season with a sports hernia, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Surgery is likely for Matt Kassian, but barring any unforeseen issues, he has plenty of time to recover before the Wild pick things up again for next season. The rugged Kassian finishes up the 2011-12 campaign with two goals and 55 PIMs in 24 games.

Wild's Kassian Out With Groin Injury

News: Matt Kassian will not play Thursday due to a groin injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: He may have been a healthy scratch anyway with Mikko Koivu set to return Thursday from a shoulder injury.

Wild's Kassian Plays Despite Groin Injury

News: Matt Kassian (groin) had three hits in seven minutes of ice time in Tuesday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: He was questionable before the game with the groin injury, but was able to play.

Matt Kassian

Kassian Questionable For Minnesota Tuesday

News: Matt Kassian (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Dallas, Wild.com reports.
Analysis: With an average ice time of just 5:22 when active, Matt Kassian is off the fantasy radar either way.

1/30/2012

Matt Kassian

Wild Recall Kassian From AHL Houston

News: The Wild have recalled Matt Kassian from AHL Houston, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian has played in 10 career NHL games, but has failed to record a single point. He will begin practicing with the team Monday, but is nothing more than added depth on the roster.

1/25/2012

Matt Kassian, LW, ARI

Matt Kassian

Wild's Kassian Re-Assigned to AHL Houston

News: The Wild have re-assigned Matt Kassian to AHL Houston, the Wild's official site reports.
Analysis: Matt Kassian made a temporary stint with the Wild, only being called up for a total of five days.

Matt Kassian

Wild's Kassian Recalled From AHL

News: Matt Kassian was called up from Houston of the AHL, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The enforcer will likley only have fantasy value for penalty minutes - if he even gets much ice time.
