News Release: Senators acquire forward Matt Kassian from Minnesota in exchange for Ottawa\u2019s sixth-round draft pick in 2014

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has acquired forward Matt Kassian from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for the team’s sixth-round draft pick in 2014.

Kassian, 26, participated in the Wild’s 2012-13 training camp before being assigned to the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Houston Aeros, on Feb. 12. In nine games with the Aeros this season, Kassian has recorded one goal and 12 penalty minutes. He did not see any playing time with Minnesota.

An Edmonton native, Kassian made his NHL debut during the 2010-11 season after originally being selected in the second round, 57th overall, by Minnesota in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. In 28 career NHL games (all with the Wild), he has registered two points (two goals) and 27 penalty minutes. In 229 career AHL games, all with Houston, he has recorded 12 goals, 12 assists and 505 penalty minutes.

The Senators next see action tomorrow when they visit the Montreal Canadiens at 7 p.m.
