February 2012 – Kassian is a big, rugged body that can certainly throw a check. The Sabre took him in the first round because of his tenacity and high hockey IQ. Scored some big goals and points in his final & fourth year of juniors with Windsor Spitfires on the way to a Memorial Cup Championship. Represented Canada at the 2011 WJCs winning a silver medal. Has been up & down several times in his first pro season between Buffalo and Rochester.

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Kassian is a big, power forward that is known for throwing his body around. Potential top-six forward with impressive physical presence, though limited offensive ability may keep him off the first line.

2009 Fantasy Prospects Report:

Scouting Report: Easy to get caught up in the hype, but Kassian is simply an honest hockey player with few natural gifts. Poor defensively due to mediocre skating ability. Notable Numbers: Was the only player in the OHL’s top 20 PIM-getters to score a point-per-game.

Potential: Second-line winger, 20-30-50+, 120+ PIM

Years Away: 3
