"You have to be professional, have to behave like a professional," Bergevin added, according to Habs Eyes on the Prize. "You’re lucky to be playing hockey. I’m a big believer in character, and that’s a lack of character and judgement on his part."
"We took a risk, and we gave him a chance. Eventually you become responsible for your actions. We’ll see what happens."
The Canadiens acquired Kassian from the Vancouver Canucks in exchance for Brandon Prust. Kassian, a former first-round draft pick, finished with 10 goals and six assists in 42 games last season.
Montreal hasn’t placed Kassian on their injured reserve yet.
