to an entry-level, three-year deal.
Kassian, 19, is in the midst of his fourth season of junior hockey. The 6-foot-3, 226-pounder has 7 goals and 13 assists in 20 games with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League. He has already registered a pair of four-point games this season.
A Windsor, Ont., native, Kassian has 135 points (52 goals, 83 assists) in 168 OHL games. He had 16 points in 19 games for Windsor last season on its Memorial Cup championship run.
