Canuck Kassian visiting the Valley

Vancouver Canuck Zack Kassian will take a break from terrorizing NHL D-men to drop by Chilliwack Sunday afternoon.

Big Zack Kassian is coming to Chilliwack.

The Vancouver Canucks forward will be at Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall Sunday afternoon, signing autographs and meeting fans.

He’ll be there from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

A VIP pass is required.

$20 gets you an 8×10 photo which Kassian will sign for free.

Acquired from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Cody Hodgson at the 2012 National Hockey League trade deadline, the 24 year old has struggled to find consistency.

But lately, the six-foot-three power forward looks to be finding his game.

Since returning to the lineup to replace injured Alex Burrows, the Windsor, ON native has cut down on defensive errors and started to play a more assertive offensive game.

On the season, he now has 10 goals and 16 points in 40 games. Along with youngsters like Bo Horvat, Kassian is spearheading a youth movement within the Canucks.

Kassian was originally a first round draft pick (13th overall) of the Sabres in 2009.

In 196 career regular season games, Kassian has 35 goals, 66 points and 283 penalty minutes.
