Oilers trade Kassian to Coyotes

The Edmonton Oilers traded Zack Kassian at the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.

In addition to Kassian, Edmonton gave up the 29th pick in the 2022 draft, a third-round pick in 2024 and a second-round pick in 2025. In return, Arizona gave up the 32nd pick in the 2022 auction, the last of the first round.

With the choice acquired, the Coyotes set their sights on the giant format defender of the Voltigeurs de Drummondville Maveric Lamoureux.

Kassian has spent the last seven seasons with the Oilers. The forward has 19 points (six goals, 13 assists) in 58 games this season, in addition to adding two goals and two assists in 16 playoff games.

Kassian has two more seasons left on the four-year, $12.8 million ($3.2 million annual average) contract he signed with Edmonton on Jan. 29, 2020.

A first-round pick (13th) of the Buffalo Sabers in 2009, Kassian has 201 points (90 goals, 111 assists) in 610 regular season games and nine points (six goals, three assists) in 45 playoff games.
