Did Zack Kassian mock Sam Gagner's face shield?

Rich Lam

Is this Zack Kassian mocking the face shield that Sam Gagner has to wear because Zack Kassian broke his jaw? That's what it looks like.

Back in the preseason Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian was guilty of a terrible high-sticking penalty that broke the jaw of Edmonton Oilers forward Sam Gagner.

Kassian ended up sitting out the first five regular season games with a suspension, while Gagner missed the first month of the season and had to wear a protective face shield when he returned to the lineup.

On Friday night the teams faced off in Vancouver, and during a scrum in the third period Kassian seemed to asking Gagner about his face shield. You know … the one that Gagner has to wear because Kassian bashed him in the face with a stick.

Oh no. No. No. No. No. That's not good.

And the reaction was pretty much exactly what you might expect.

Just in case you needed a refresher, this was the play from the preseason that broke Gagner's jaw.
