Video: Zack Kassian takes skate to face

4 Comments

Zack Kassian encountered a scary moment in the Vancouver Canucks’ 4-3 OT loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, as Tom Sestito accidentally caught him in the face with his skate during this hit:

Not much has been updated about Kassian’s condition, although NHL.com’s Curtis Zupke does report that he’s listed as day-to-day, according to John Tortorella. (Torts said the same about Roberto Luongo.)

All things considered, day-to-day doesn’t sound too bad considering how frightening that moment was.

As far as the game itself, the Canucks nearly snagged a win despite the Ducks’ 49-20 shot advantage, but Corey Perry’s OT-winner gave Anaheim the W.
