Zack Kassian is expected to miss Thursday's game.

He was on the ice before the team's morning skate. "I think Zack is getting closer, I don't think it's anything major," coach Willie Desjardins said. "The next step is to get him into a regular practice." Kassian also missed Tuesday's match with a suspected back injury.
Mar 19 - 6:44 PM

It is being reported that Zack Kassian has tightness in his back and was held out of Tuesday's game as a precaution.

TSN's Farhan Lalji reported the Canucks' forward is suffering from the same back injury that has bothered him in the past. He is still considered day-to-day though and would probably be in there if it was a playoff game. The Canucks have plenty of healthy bodies on the night.
Mar 17 - 11:45 PM

Zack Kassian suffered an undisclosed injury during Tuesday morning's skate, and will not face the Flyers. He'll be replaced by Alex Burrows on the top line with the Sedin twins.

Through 42 games this season, Kassian has compiled 10 goals and 16 points with 81 PIMs and 88 hits. Not too shabby for the gritty forward.

Mar 15 - 11:03 AM

Zack Kassian's 10th goal of the year with just four minutes remaining lifted the Canucks to a 2-1 win over the Ducks on Monday night.

Kassian had been held off the scoresheet for the previous four games, and now has 16 points in 40 contests this season. The 24-year-old also upped his penalty minutes total to 57 in the victory.

Mar 5 - 7:02 PM

Zack Kassian will miss Tuesday's tilt with the Sharks due to the flu. Brandon McMillan will take his place.

Kassian had a bit of a resurgent month in February, scoring seven goals and nine points over 10 games. He also added seven penalty minutes and 17 hits. McMillan meanwhile has accumulated three points and 82 hits in 53 games this season, the vast majority of which coming with the Coyotes.
Mar 3 - 9:15 PM

Zack Kassian potted his ninth goal of the season to lift the Canucks to a 2-1 win over Boston Tuesday night.

Kassian has now found the back of the net four times in his last three games, thanks to the fact he's been paired with Daniel and Henrik Sedin on Vancouver's top line. The offense isn't likely to last, but he may score to enough to be worth owning for his meaty penalty minute totals. Ryan Stanton also scored for the Canucks in the win.
Feb 24 - 10:06 PM

Zack Kassian scored a goal in Vancouver's 4-0 win over the New York Islanders.

Kassian has now scored three goals in his last two contests. The 24-year-old power forward has been sharing the ice with some of Vancouver's premiere talents like the Sedin twins and Radim Vrbata. Kassian hasn't produced as much as the Canucks would have hoped but if he can get hot, he can be an important piece of their roster. He has eight goals and 14 points in 34 games this season. Kassian has seven points in his last seven games.
Feb 22 - 9:34 PM

Zack Kassian was expected to be a healthy scratch but drew into the Canucks lineup as Alex Burrows was out with a lower body injury.

Not only did Kassian draw into the lineup but he was put on the top line with the Sedin twins and responded with the Canucks only two goals of the night. Burrows is hoping he does not turn into another Wally Pipp.
Feb 21 - 9:59 AM

Zack Kassian scored two goals in Vancouver's 4-2 loss to New Jersey on Friday night.

Kassian was a healthy scratch in Vancouver's last game but he responded in a big way. The Canucks found themselves down 3-0 when Kassian scored his first goal of the game in the second period. Kassian brought Vancouver to within one goal at the 3:04 mark of the third period. Unfortunately for the Canucks, they were unable to complete the comeback. The interesting thing about Kassian's goals is that they were both set up by the Sedin twins. If Kassian continues to play with Henrik and Daniel, it could impact his fantasy stock significantly. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 13 points in 33 games this season.
Feb 20 - 9:38 PM

Zack Kassian will return to the Canucks' lineup as Alex Burows takes a seat versus the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

Kassian has just 11 points, 39 PIMs, and 63 hits in 32 games this season. Burrows meanwhile has 12 goals and 25 points this season, and is having his best season since 2011-12 where he scored 28 goals and 52 points.
Feb 20 - 6:21 PM

Zack Kassian will be scratched against the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

It appears that Kassian's days in North America's Pacific Northwest are numbered, but regardless of who trades for him, it's difficult to advice that you pick him up for offensive production. Kassian has just five goals and 11 points through 32 games this season, and his career high is just 14 goals and 29 points from last season.
