When Zack Kassian was dealt to the Canucks for Cody Hodgson at last year's trade deadline, most Canucks fans felt robbed.
Hodgson was on a tear, putting up a season worthy of Calder Trophy consideration. Kassian, on the other hand, had just seven points in 27 games with the Buffalo Sabres and only picked up three more after joining the Canucks.
Despite his unimpressive debut in Vancouver, Kassian remains a very skilled prospect and could still become a dangerous power forward in the NHL.
Mike Gillis was often criticized following the trade, but stuck by his decision to part with Hodgson. He'll make sure Kassian gets every chance to prove his decision was the smart one to make.
Kassian is currently playing with the Wolves and is tied for second with Jordan Schroeder with 12 points in 18 games. He also leads the team with 51 penalty minutes.
