Kessel has Hand Surgery

Quote
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Phil Kessel had surgery on his hand Friday and expects to be ready for training camp in September, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Saturday.

"It was something he dealt with all season," Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford told the newspaper. "It bothered him. He took care of it. He's not expect[ed] to miss any time."

Kessel shares his Stanley Cup day privately in Toronto with friends.

Nor fanfare.  Well maybe a little...

A bunch of reports on social media say that he brought the Cup to the Sick Kids hospital. Awesome.

The trade had to happen.  The scenario that led up to the trade (allowing the media to act like wild ferrets against Kessel and having a coach who did dick all to protect the players from it) did not.

I keep leaning on the idea that without that trade we don't get Matthews... but god damn how amazing would it be right now if we had both (and Nylander and Marner).

What a sweet thing to do.  And to top it all off in Toronto,  superb!

Phil (the incredible).  A nod to you, Mr. Kessel.

I love that Phil took it to Sick Kids, and did so without announcing it well beforehand.  What a champ.  He really wasn't a good fit with the Leafs, given our situation at the time, but I was always a fan of his.

I've always thought he comes off as just a genuinely nice guy (who tries hard, loves the game) and his teammates always seem to back that up so not entirely surprised he did that.  Just seems like a good dude.
