Phil Kessel (hand) might not be ready for the start of the regular season.
Pens beat writer Josh Yohe suggests that "it will be close". Kessel was left off Team USA's roster for the upcoming World Cup, so he doesn't have to rush back from his injury. The Pens forward underwent hand surgery in July after his team won the Stanley Cup. Losing Kessel for any amount of time would certainly be a blow for Pittsburgh, but they've managed to survive when some of their other stars have gone down to injury. Kessel scored 26 goals and 59 points in 82 games during the regular season, but he exploded for 10 goals and 22 points in 24 games during the postseason. Aug 29 - 10:09 AM
