Zack Kassian (born January 24, 1991 in LaSalle) is a Canadian junior ice hockey player. He currently plays for the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Kassian is of Armenian descent. He was chosen 13th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.


Junior career

Kassian made his debut with the Petes in the 2007–08 season. He appeared in 58 games, scoring 9 goals to go along with 12 assists for 21 points.
In the 2008–09 season, Kassian showed great improvement, and his numbers increased greatly. In 61 games played, he had 24 goals and 39 assists for 63 points. He also had 136 penalty minutes, which was the highest number on the Petes; this was due in part to Kassian's 13 fighting majors. That season, he played in the OHL All-Star Classic, scoring a goal and adding an assist for the Eastern Conference team. He also played in the CHL Top Prospects Game for Team Cherry. In the game, he had a hit on top prospect John Tavares, which left Tavares with a shoulder injury [1].

Kassian plays a power forward style, and has been compared to Boston Bruins forward Milan Lučić. He names Todd Bertuzzi as his favourite player.

On June 26, 2009, Kassian was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres.

On January 21, 2010, Kassian was handed a 20 game suspension by the OHL for his hit to the head of Barrie Colts forward Matt Kennedy.
