Oilers recall forward Zack Kassian

Wednesday January 13th, 2016

The Edmonton Oilers have recalled forward Zack Kassian from the Bakersfield Condors, the team announced Wednesday.

Kassian, who was acquired from the Canadiens on Dec. 28, was arrested and suspended by the league after being involved in a car accident in Montreal on Oct. 4. He was recently reinstated and entered into the follow-up care phase of the league’s substance abuse and behavioral health program​.

A first round selection by the Sabres in the 2009 draft, Kassian has bounced from Buffalo to Vancouver to Montreal and now to Edmonton in his career.

He tallied 16 points off 10 goals and six assists last season, and was expected to be the right winger on the Canadiens’ fourth line before the October incident.
