Canucks send Kassian on conditioning assignment

Vancouver Canucks center Zack Kassian, acquired at last year's trade deadline for Cody Hodgson, was sent to the Chicago Wolves of the AHL on a conditioning assignment Sunday.

The Canucks also reassigned forward Andrew Gordon and recalled forwards Nicklas Jensen and Bill Sweatt.

Kassian, 22, has appeared in one game since March 14. He has five goals and eight points in 27 games this season. Hodgson, meanwhile, has 12 goals and 28 points in 35 games this season for the Buffalo Sabres.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
