Zack Kassian Tries To Hop Into Wrong Bench During Botched Line Change (Video)

Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian was an unwelcome guest on the St. Louis Blues bench Thursday night.

Video: Zack Kassian tries to jump in the Blues bench to avoid a penalty

The Vancouver Canucks had too many men on the ice and Zack Kassian tried his best to avoid a penalty by jumping in the Blues’ bench. Though he never actually made it past the boards, Kassian received an earful from Steve Ott. Usually you see things get pretty physical when an opposing player tries to jump in your bench, but it looks like the Blues were too shocked by Kassian suddenly...

Are The Vancouver Canucks A Playoff Team?

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,  ... it can reasonably be said the Canucks have changed the atmosphere around the team and improved the bottom half of their lineup. As for their frontliners, it just doesn’t seem possible that Henrik and Daniel Sedin will be as unproductive as they were last season, just as it seems possible that one of Nick Bonino, Zack Kassian...

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

As a restricted free agent without salary arbitration rights, Vancouver Canuck forward Zack Kassian had a choice to make: wait all summer to try for a few more dollars, or sign now and get on with his life.

Canucks beat Kings 2-1, stave off playoff elimination

The Vancouver Canucks must have felt like they were California Dreaming. They actually beat the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

The Wrong System In Vancouver

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, This season, Tortorella has attempted to turn them into a grinding, shot-blocking, defensive-first team — which is fine if you’ve got the personnel of, say, a Los Angeles or St. Louis. But the Canucks don’t and their attempts to play that way have been a disaster. Defensively, they’re eighth in the West in goals allowed and tied...

Canucks find success against Wild, 5-2, for third straight win

When David Booth is scoring goals and Alex Edler is preventing them, when Zack Kassian is driving the attack and Brad Richardson leading forwards in ice time, anything seems possible for the Vancouver Canucks. Even a three-game winning streak. An 11-game winning streak to close out the National Hockey League regular season and possibly put the Canucks in the playoffs? Well, let...
