Kassian was drafted in the 2nd rd so he must be a decent player who can skate & hit & hopefully do a little more than just fight
. I prefer to wait to see if the guy can play to determine whether it was a good deal or not but IMO this team needed a heavyweight & he seems as good as any or better than most based on his score card.
He had 3 goals, no assists in his draft year in the WHL. His career high in points is 18 in 72 GP, as a 20 year old in the WHL. His draft position has no bearing on his skills. He can throw his mitts, and that's it. We have a fighter, nothing more.
