Kassian Hangs Up His Skates After 12 Years


In the last few minutes, Zach Kassian announced his retirement after 661 regular-season games and 45 playoff games over 12 years.

He was drafted 13th overall in 2009 by the Sabres and played for the Canucks, Oilers, and Coyotes.

Kassian commented:

"To play in the NHL is one thing, but to make a 12-year career out of it is pretty special. From coaches to equipment staff and fellow players I've met along the way, I've made so many relationships that are going to last a lifetime."

We wish him the best going into retirement!
