Kassian Taunts Gagner Injury



It appears Zack Kassian has caused a bit of a stir with a gesture he made towards the Edmonton Oilers players near the end of the game on Friday night.

David Perron and Luke Gazdic got into it with Kassian as a scrum ensued at the benches with just under a minute to play in the third period. As Kassian was skating towards his bench for a line change, Perron made an extra attempt to rough him up.

The players on the ice came in for some generic pushing and shoving before being led away by the linesmen. As the players were separating, Kassian starting pointing towards his own chin, saying "what's that?" while looking towards the Oilers bench.

Sam Gagner of course is wearing a protective guard under his chin after the errant stick of Kassian in the preseason broke his jaw. Kassian was given a suspension that affected both the preseason and the regular season for the injury suffered to Gagner.

David Perron ended up with a roughing penalty during the mix-up with Kassian. Dale Weise would add salt to the Oilers gapping wounds as he scored on the power play, capping off a tough played game by the fourth line.

I guess the question now is, was Kassian directing his gesture towards Gagner? and if so, did he cross the line? You be the judge. Watch the clip above.

He wasnt talking to Gagner but the Oiler childish brat fans needed something to cry 'victim' about so they dont have to deal with their pathetic teams performance.

P.s. Cody Hodgson sucks.
