Kassian selected for rookie card photo shoot

Zack Kassian is set to achieve that childhood mark of immortality: His face is going to be on a trading card.

Kassian is one of 27 NHL prospects who have been selected to participate in the 2011 NHL Players' Association Rookie Showcase next Tuesday near Toronto. The Sabres' first-round pick in 2009 will join notables such as Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Washington's Cody Eakin in posing for Upper Deck, giving the trading card company an exclusive opportunity to photograph many of the game’s top young prospects for the first time in their NHL uniforms. The shots will be used for upcoming trading card and memorabilia launches.
