Zack Kassian projection

Hey Guys,

Im an oiler fan and Im hearing a lot about this Kassian kid. Looks to be a big strong winger but I've never seen him play.

For those that know a bit about him please share. Is he more of a Ryan Hollweg or a Brandon Sutter, could he be as good as Lucic or be a JF Jacques and fall off the map when you hit the NHL?

Style of play, is he reckless and like a bull in a china shop or does he use his head when he's being physical?

There are videos and scouting reports about him on the internet

Do some research - look it up and see for yourself and you can make your own conclusions on him

There is not much consensus on this guy so you will have to draw your own conclusion. He's more of a bull in a chinashop, boom or bust powerforward prospect. Question marks about his skating and attitude, his hands are considered to be pretty good. Very similar points and pim as Lucic at the same age.

from what i have seen i see a bit of lucic in him. the major differences are kassian has a little more skill but not as much of a physical player as lucic is.

i see him as more of a todd bertuzzi from his last four full NHL seasons.


i can see him putting up numbers like that.
