The catcher gets a putout on a strikeout.  Perhaps that's what you were thinking?   

Catcher gets a putout unless he drops the third strike  and then if he throws the runner out, the firstbaseman gets the putout and the catcher gets an assist.

In any case, the pitcher doesn't get an assist.  Well let's say the pitch bounces off the catcher's glove, back to the pitcher, who throws the runner out.  Then he gets an assist.
