ZACK KASSIAN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Zack Kassian happy with new deal; vows ‘I can do more’

Canucks’ Zack Kassian gets kicked in the face with an ice skate; 43-year-old emergency back-up gets scare

All things considered, Vancouver’s Zack Kassian got off easy last night when he became the victim of Tom Sestito’s flailing leg.

Zack Kassian, mocker of face shields, takes a skate to the face

Your browser does not support iframes. You remember Zack Kassian of the Vancouver Canucks, right?

Vancouver has a Zack Kassian conundrum

An Ode to Disillusionment This was supposed to be Zack Kassian‘s year. Out with Alain Vigneault and his decidedly bad reputation – earned fairly or otherwise – for developing youngsters, and in with John Tortorella; he of the excellent track record with prospects.

TSK TSK Zack In case you missed it earlier today, Canucks forward Zack Kassian was suspended 5 regular season games. Plus the rest of the preseason. WHY you ask?

On Sunday, Edmonton Oilers center Sam Gagner suffered a broken jaw after Canucks’ winger Zack Kassian essentially slashed his face with a high stick.

“New Kid On The Ice” – Vancouver Canucks Zack Kassian in the spotlight

“We Are All Canucks” Starting during the 2008-09 season, the Vancouver Canucks dropped the “We Are All Canucks” campaign on their fans. Over time, the marketing department may have gone in different directions, but at the end of the day, the team still wants us to feel that we are the seventh man on the ice.
