Kassian Re-Signs With Canucks For Two Years

News: Zack Kassian re-signed with the Canucks on a two-year, $3.5 million contract Thursday, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Zack Kassian took a small step forward in his age-23 season with the Canucks, supplying 14 goals and 14 assists over 29 games. Following the signing of Radim Vrbata on Wednesday, Kassian will have to battle with Jannik Hansen in training camp to claim the final spot on the Canucks' second line. It's also possible that both players get extended runs on the second line during the regular season, with the coaching staff ultimately deciding which of the two players fits better next to Nick Bonino and Alexandre Burrows.

Kassian Scores In Canucks' Loss

News: Zack Kassian collected a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss at Edmonton.
Analysis: He's one point shy of the 30-point mark (14-15-29) and will have one last opportunity to reach that benchmark when the Canucks close the season at home against Calgary on Sunday. We like his career development path so far; next season's value will depend on his line assignment.

Canucks' Kassian Continues To Put Up Points

News: Zack Kassian set up Brad Richardson's game-winning goal and was plus-1 in Saturday's win over the Kings. Kassian now has eight points in his last six games.
Analysis: Zack Kassian showed tremendous patience on the game-winner, holding onto the puck before dishing out a perfect pass to Richardson. It took some time, but Kassian is finally starting to show signs of living up to his potential. He has 13 goals and 27 points in 69 games this season playing on Vancouver's third line, but this late success could point to a breakout next season.

Canucks' Kassian Healthy

News: Zack Kassian (knee) is not listed as one of the Canucks' injured players for Saturday's game against the Kings, the The Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Zack Kassian took a big hit during Tuesday's game, but it looks like nothing ever came of it. He has seven points over the last five games but just 26 for the season.

Canucks' Kassian Leaves With Knee Injury

News: Zack Kassian was taken into the end boards Tuesday against the Rangers, and needed assistance to get off the ice due to an apparent right knee injury, the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard reports.
Analysis: He had been heating up of late, posting two goals in his last three games. Owners will want to monitor his status going forward, as it's not clear if he will be able to return to Tuesday's game.

Zack Kassian

Canucks' Kassian Scores For Second Straight Game

News: Zack Kassian scored for the second straight game in Thursday's overtime loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Zack Kassian is heating up lately, tallying six points (two goals and four assists) in his last three games. Even though he only has 13 goals and 12 assists in 66 games this season, the 23-year-old appears destined to finish the season in impressive fashion. However, he has battled consistency issues, so don't get too excited, as he could quickly fall into a slump. It would be nice for fantasy owners if Kassian could get bumped up from the third line, as his fantasy value is limited due to his lack of ice time.

Canucks' Kassian Scores 12th Of Season

News: Zack Kassian scored his 12th goal of the season in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.
Analysis: Zack Kassian also recorded a game-high four shots on goal in his 14:50 of ice time. After notching four assists Sunday against Buffalo, Kassian now has five points in his last two games, and he now has 12 goals and 12 assists in 65 contests this year. He's currently playing on the third line, but could see increased ice time if the Canucks happen to fall out of playoff contention.

Canucks' Kassian Tallies Four Assists

News: Zack Kassian picked up four helpers and was a plus-4 against the Sabres on Sunday.
Analysis: This gives Zack Kassian a whopping 12 assists on the season. The only thing he's done this year of note is rack up penalty minutes.

Canucks' Kassian Suspended Three Games

News: Zack Kassian has been suspended three games for his hit on Dallas defenseman Brenden Dillon in Thursday's loss to the Stars, CBC's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Analysis: Zack Kassian was previously suspended for the first five games of the season, after he broke the jaw of Edmonton's Sam Gagner with a high stick in preseason play. With just 18 points through 59 games, Kassian has drawn more attention for his disciplinary hearings than his play. Assuming he serves the suspension immediately, Kassian will be back for next Friday's game (Mar. 14) in Washington.

Canucks' Kassian Ejected In Loss To Dallas

News: Zack Kassian was handed a game misconduct and a five-minute major for boarding Stars defenseman Brenden Dillon during the first period of Thursday's loss to Dallas. Kassian will face a disciplinary hearing, CBC's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Analysis: Zack Kassian hasn't contributed much offense as of late, but he now has 118 PIM on the year, which is seventh overall in the NHL. The 23-year-old winger was already suspended for five games earlier this season for a high-sticking infraction on Oilers forward Sam Gagner. Kassian only has one point in his last seven games, but has tallied 11 goals and 18 points in 59 games on the year.

Canucks' Kassian Brings Physical Presence

News: Zack Kassian has 10 goals and seven assists in 54 games this season.
Analysis: The winger also provides a physical presence for the Canucks, and has racked up 101 PIM this season. Expect him to continue playing a depth role moving forward, although he can provide some PIM for fantasy teams in need.

Canucks' Kassian Cracks Double-Digit Goals

News: Zack Kassian scored his 10th goal of the year, and it turned out to be the winner in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Edmonton.
Analysis: In parts of two NHL seasons before this year, Zack Kassian hadn't exceeded seven goals, so this is a nice milestone for the young winger. His fantasy value is largely defined by his PIM contributions right now, but Kassian has very real offensive upside as well.

Canucks' Kassian Nabs Assist To Go With 16 PIM

News: Zack Kassian picked up an assist to go with 16 PIM in Saturday's shootout win over Calgary. He has now collected 56 PIM over his past four games.
Analysis: Zack Kassian's recent trips to the penalty box make him valuable in leagues that place value on such behavior. Though the lines were juggled throughout Saturday's tilt, Kassian played alongside Ryan Kesler on the second line for the majority of the game. Kassian only has 13 points in 44 games on the year, but played one of his better games of the season on Saturday. He has two points in his last four games and is still only 22 years of age. He will get to that next level soon enough.

Canucks' Kassian Racks Up PIM In Loss

News: Zack Kassian collected 22 PIM in Monday's 1-0 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Zack Kassian was handed two 10-minute misconducts on Monday, the prime reason he was limited to only 7:24 of ice time. Kassian has proven valuable in leagues that count PIM, but his 11 points in 41 games aren't doing much for fantasy owners looking for offensive production. With Alex Burrows (jaw) nearing a return from injury, Kassian may not be used in a top-six forward role for much longer.

Vancouver's Kassian Shows Up Offensively

News: Zack Kassian notched a goal and an assist in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Penguins. He also laid four hits.
Analysis: He'd gone five straight without a point leading up to Tuesday's action, so it's nice to see him active both offensively and physically -- the half-dozen hits were a season high. Zack Kassian spent Tuesday's game on the second line alongside Ryan Kesler and Chris Higgins, logging a season-high 18:03 of ice time. With some injuries up front, this could be the the start of something big for Kassian, who only has 11 points in 39 games this season.

Canucks' Kassian Cleared To Play Tuesday

News: Zack Kassian (undisclosed) has been cleared to play and will play in Tuesday's game against the Penguins, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Zack Kassian left Sunday's game after taking a skate boot to the forehead and did not return. He was evaluated and has been deemed ready to play Tuesday.

Canucks' Kassian Leaves With Injury

News: Zack Kassian left Sunday's game against the Canucks with an undisclosed injury and did not return, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Zack Kassian left in the second period when he was hit in the forehead by a teammates skate boot. He left the game to be treated and did not return. He should be considered day-to-day with the injury.

Canucks' Kassian Collects Another Point

News: Zack Kassian collected a point for the second straight game on Sunday, assisting on Chris Tanev's game-winner in a 2-1 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Zack Kassian played 15:42 in Sunday's win, a sign he is starting to gain the confidence of coach John Tortorella. He has now scored eight goals in 33 games on the year. He is currently on the third line, but could be on his way to earning himself a gig with the Sedin twins. If he lands that role in the future, his fantasy value will shoot through the roof.

Canucks' Kassian Scores Seventh Of Season

News: Zack Kassian scored his seventh goal of the season in a shootout win over the Hawks on Friday.
Analysis: Even though Zack Kassian would get denied later on in the shootout, his goal in regulation was the one that got the Canucks on the board Friday and helped them claw back from a 2-0 deficit. He is now up to eight points in 32 games on the year. While he may be valuable in fantasy hockey one day, his inconsistency combined with the fact he is only averaging 11:35 of ice time per game makes him valuable in only the deepest of leagues right now.

Canucks' Kassian Scores Goal In Friday's Win

News: Zack Kassian scored his sixth goal of the season during Friday's 4-0 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: This was the first time Zack Kassian faced the Oilers since he took an eight-game suspension for hitting Sam Gagner in the head with his stick and breaking his jaw during the preseason. There were no fisticuffs or anything, but it certainly rubbed the Oilers the wrong way when he put one in the net and, at one point, mocked Gagner with a throat-cutting gesture with his hand. This seems like a story to follow the next time these two teams play against each other.

Canucks' Kassian A Healthy Scratch In Win

News: Zack Kassian was a healthy scratch in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Analysis: He hasn't impressed the coach very much this season, so we can't say we didn't see this coming. It's been a very disappointing year for the youngster, who's collected only six points in 23 games.

Canucks' Kassian Racks Up Penalty Minutes

News: Zack Kassian collected 17 PIM, but only saw 5:35 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Zack Kassian was quite feisty on Monday, helping his fantasy owners in the PIM category a good bit. Unfortunately, you won't see much offensive production from Kassian if he spends so much of the game in the box or on the bench.

Canucks' Kassian Benched During Loss To Hawks

News: Zack Kassian played a season-low 4:10 in a 2-1 loss to the Hawks on Saturday. He was benched for the majority of the second and third period.
Analysis: Zack Kassian's growing number of mistakes on the ice forced coach John Tortorella to send him a message. Kassian scored his fifth goal of the season Friday against Columbus, but clearly couldn't carry the momentum over Saturday against the Hawks. He is averaging only 12:07 of ice time per game, a number that must be very concerning for some fantasy owners. Kassian could be useful in some deep leagues, but don't expect much in shallower formats.

Canucks' Kassian Scores Fourth Goal Of Season

News: Zack Kassian scored his third goal in five games in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Thursday.
Analysis: Zack Kassian skated 13:23 on the third line and is starting to make a difference on the ice. Kassian could be worth a look in deep leagues, but it's hard to have much confidence considering how little ice time he is being given.

Canucks' Kassian Makes Waves In WIn

News: Zack Kassian scored a goal and collected 10 penalty minutes in a win over Toronto on Saturday.
Analysis: It was his second goal in three games. Zack Kassian made waves on Saturday, as he dished out a hit on David Bolland that put the Leafs center out indefinitely. It appeared accidental, though, as Kassian's skate sliced Bolland's tendon during a hit. Kassian only saw 9:33 of ice time Saturday and shouldn't be considered in most fantasy leagues until he gets bumped up the depth chart.
