Edmonton Oilers

NHL CapHit: $1,950,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Oilers have signed Zack Kassian to a three-year extension worth $5.85M ($1.95M AAV).

It seems like forever ago that Kassian was selected No.13 overall and after a few tough seasons and stops in Buffalo, Vancouver and Montreal, Kassian seems to have found a home in Edmonton. In his second season with the Oilers, the power-forward had 23 points (7G / 17A) in 79 games and added three more goals in 13 playoff games.

Kassian will make his Oilers debut on Thursday.

Kassian, who was traded in the preseason to Montreal, never played a game with the Habs. After being acquired by the Oilers, he collected one goal in four games with the Bakersfield Condors. He is a big body presence and could work his way up the lineup, but expect him to start in the bottom-6 on Thursday.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Zack Kassian from the Montreal Canadiens for Ben Scrivens.

Kassian, 24, has not appeared in a game yet this season because of a suspension that stemmed from a car accident in September. The former first-round pick has 66 points (35G / 31A) in 198 career NHL games with the Sabres and Canucks. He will report to Bakersfield (AHL).

Kassian has cleared waivers and has been assigned St. John's (AHL).

After being reinstated on Tuesday, Kassian was placed on waivers and cleared this afternoon. He has been sent to St. John's where he will work on his game after not playing for the first two and a half months of the season. Kassian will need to improve at the AHL level before the Habs call him back up.

The Canadiens have placed Zack Kassian on waivers.

Kassian who has not played yet this season after being entered into the Substance Abuse program in the preseason has been placed on waivers for purpose of assignment to the AHL. The former 1st round pick has not lived up to expectations, but a team in need of a big body, that believes in second chances, could elect to take a flier on Kassian.

Kassian is out indefinitely with a fractured left foot and nose.

Kassian’s injury were reportedly “minor” on Sunday, but this afternoon the Canadiens revealed the injuries were more serious and will force him to miss time. Kassian has a bad reputation after underachieving in Buffalo and Vancouver but he was given a fresh start in Montreal, that has not gotten off on the right foot.
