• In his second year with the Petes, Kassian finished second in scoring with 63 points (36-33-69) in 61 games, including 13 power-play goals. Known for his physical play, he also finished in the top 20 in the Ontario Hockey League with 136 penalty minutes.

• Highlights of 2008-09 season included two points (1-1-2) in the OHL All-Star Classic, representing the OHL in the Canada/Russia Challenge, and being selected to the 2009 CHL Top Prospects game.

• Kassian represented Team Canada, winning a gold-medal at the 2008 Ivan Hlinka Memorial and finishing fourth at the 2009 Under-18 World Championships.

• He first began playing hockey with the Kingsville Kings when he was eight and he credits his brother for having the biggest influence on his career – “he’s always there for me and tells me what I need to hear”.

• If he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose Todd Bertuzzi, Tiger Woods and Cam Neely “because they all have something about themselves which makes them unique”.

• His most embarrassing hockey moment was playing with two sticks at the same time on the penalty kill and his childhood hockey hero was Bobby Orr.
