Oilers recall Kassian from AHL


Zack Kassian is back in the NHL.

The Edmonton Oilers recalled the big winger from AHL Bakersfield today. He had one goal in the four games he played for the Condors after being traded from Montreal.

Kassian, 24, last played an NHL game on March 14, when he was still a member of the Vancouver Canucks. After spending time in treatment for substance-abuse issues, he understands that this opportunity with the Oilers is “most definitely” his “last chance”.

Edmonton plays in San Jose tomorrow, before hosting Calgary Saturday.

With Matt Hendricks suspended, the Oilers opted to dress seven defensemen in last night’s overtime loss to the Arizona.
