Pittsburgh General Manager Jim Rutherford said he was excited to add winger Phil Kessel on Wednesday.
"I'm very excited about what happened today," Rutherford said on Wednesday. "We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today." Kessel gives the Pens an elite scoring option on the wing for Sidney Crosby and/or Evgeni Malkin. The 27-year-old scored 25 goals and 61 points in 82 games with the Leafs last season. Kessel's numbers should spike now that he will be playing with other elite offensive players. Jul 2 - 5:48 PM
