The Ottawa Senators picked up their first win of the season Thursday evening, defeating the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 at Scotiabank Place. Mike Fisher’s two-goal performance powered the offence and Brian Elliott was forced into action after Pascal Leclaire left the game with an injury early in the first period.
#61 Zack Kassian BUF F Drafted: 2009-13th
One-Timer: Kassian is one of the OHL’s toughest players and doesn’t shy away from donnybrooks, but needs to show more discipline after sometimes taking needless penalties. (Since I wrote that portion for my 2009 draft profile, he unfortunately took it to a new level last season.)There is no doubting the size, skill and energy he brings to the table, but he does need to continue to work on his skating and likewise getting quicker.
