Zack Kassian, RW
Hometown: Windsor, Ont.
Drafted: 2009 1st Rd. 13th overall – Buffalo Sabres
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.
