This video comes courtesy of Youtube user SniklsonDX who we are very thankful for, but wish he didn’t make us have to tilt our computers sideways to watch this tilt between Zack Kassian and Kyle Beach. Some of you may remember Beach as a local boy and WHLer that many fans wanted to see selected by the Canucks 10th overall in 2009.
The Canucks opted for Cody Hodgson instead, leaving Beach on the table to be taken by Chicago with the next pick. The Canucks traded Hodgson for Zack Kassian, so this fight seems almost destined. I never liked Beach, and remember him as the guy who made fun of Milan Lucic’s Scheuermann’s disease and got summarily pumped in the face several times.
Kassian also scored in this game, his sixth of the season, 1:16 into the first period from Andrew Ebbett and Darren Haydar.
