The Edmonton Oilers signed forward Zack Kassian to a four-year extension, Bob McKenzie reported during his pre-game segment on NBCSN.
The contract is worth $12.8 million with an average annual value of $3.2 million but does not have any no-trade protection according to McKenzie.
Kassian has recorded 13 goals and 15 assists in 44 games this season and is on pace to shatter his previous career highs of goals scored (15) and total points (29).
While we ponder what may or may not happen between Zack Kassian and Matthew Tkachuk in the EDM-CGY game tonight, Kassian has reason to be happy. The pending UFA F has a new contract extension — AAV of $3.2M — with the Oilers.
