Phil Kessel says he's extremely excited to have been traded the other day to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
"Being in Toronto, I got to play in one playoffs in all my years (six) there," Kessel said. "Hopefully, I'll get to play in many in Pittsburgh. I'm just so excited, I really am. For it to be Pittsburgh. . .with everything that franchise has meant and two of the best players in the world there … I never would have thought I'd have the chance to play with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, to play on a team like the Penguins. It's just amazing. I'm so pumped." Kessel had 25 goals and 61 points in 82 games in 2014-15, which is a down season by his standards. The Maple Leafs as a whole struggled last season though and obviously Crosby or Malkin will represent a huge upgrade over the centers he's worked with during his tenure with Toronto. Jul 4 - 6:26 PM
