Connor McDavid will have Zack Kassian on the first line in Edmonton
Zack Kassian just got a huge fantasy boost. The bruising forward will play on the Oilers’ top line alongside Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Kassian is actually coming off a very productive season where he put up 15 goals and 34 points in 59 games. Those numbers should get a nice uptick if Kassian remains on Edmonton’s best line throughout the season. The 6 foot 3, 215-pound right-winger will also bring penalty minutes and hits to your fantasy team. Kassian has gone over 100 penalty minutes four times in his career and had 69 PIM in the pandemic shortened 2019-20 campaign. The 29-year-old also finished third on the team in hits in each of the past two seasons averaging 174 per season over that span.
Kassian is available in more than 90 percent of fantasy leagues, although that number will likely decline with the news of the big man getting first-line minutes. Once the NHL season begins, Kassian could be a sneaky players props pick in various categories over at FanDuel’s Sportsbook.
