Zack Kassian is hot enough right now that he probably needs only a light cardigan to brave the Buffalo streets but he probably shouldn’t do that because if he violates the dress code and Willie D scratches him, there will be no wild goal celebrations and I will have nothing to write about.

  • Considering Henrik’s attire, these photos probably weren’t taken at the same time, but how cool would it be if they were so identical that every movement was synchronized?

  • Jake Virtanen takes the name Hitmen super seriously and pretty much just murders people on the ice. Here’s his latest and greatest:

Cassels’ prospect profile brings back so many memories from the Andrew Cassels era.
