Zack Kassian Bids Farewell to the NHL

Zack Kassian, the seasoned veteran of the National Hockey League, has officially announced his retirement after an impressive 12-year career that spanned 661 regular-season games and 45 postseason appearances.

Kassian tried to save his NHL career, his one last shot, by signing a PTO with the Anaheim Ducks. Sadly, he did not impress and was released from his PTO contract.




Zack Kassian played seven seasons with the #Oilers (2015-2022), tallying 55 goals, 135 points, 556 penalty minutes and 26 fights in 412 games. Once an Oiler, always an Oiler!


Kassian, who donned jerseys for various teams, including the Edmonton Oilers, leaves behind a lasting legacy in the world of professional hockey.


Reflecting on his remarkable journey, Kassian shared his sentiments, stating,
"To play in the NHL is one thing, but to make a 12-year career 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."


As Kassian embarks on this new chapter of his life, his contributions to the sport and the camaraderie he forged with those he encountered along the way will undoubtedly be fondly remembered.
