Penguins' Phil Kessel: Summer surgery complete
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kissel, who has undergone hand surgery, is expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 regular season. "He is not expected to miss any time," GM Jim Rutherford told DK Pittsburgh Sports.

Kessel played through the hand injury for an extended period of time. "He dealt with this all season," Rutherford said. The winger nearly won the Conn Smythe Award, registering 10 goals and 22 points in the playoffs.

Penguins' Phil Kessel: Will undergo hand surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kessel will require surgery on a hand injury suffered during the opening round of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

Kessel not only played in every single game during the postseason, but he also tallied 16 points in the 19 games following the series against the Rangers. There are no indications that the winger will miss any time, so fantasy owners can rest easy. Describing the 28-year-old's 2015-16 campaign as a breakout season might seem strange, but after struggling through several years of losing with the Maple Leafs, Kessel silenced many of his doubters and should be considered a top-end target heading into 2016-17.

Penguins' Phil Kessel: Tallies two helpers in huge Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kessel dished out two assists -- including one on the power-play game-winner -- Monday in a 3-1 win over the Sharks in Game 4.

The apples were the first in eight games for the 28-year-old sniper, who still contributed three goals during that span. With 21 points in 22 playoff games this spring, Kessel has been as advertised in his first postseason with the Pens and is very much in the running for the Conn Smythe Trophy -- especially if Pittsburgh can lock in that 16th and final win required to take home Lord Stanley's prize.

Penguins' Phil Kessel: Stays hot Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kessel collected his 10th goal of the postseason in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.

Kessel tapped home a pass from Nick Bonino to put the Penguins up 1-0 midway through the second period. The "HBK" line comprising Kessel, Bonino and Carl Hagelin has accounted for 50 points in 20 playoff games. The former Leafs forward has goals in five of the last eight contests.

Penguins' Phil Kessel: Familiar face scores again in Game 6 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kessel notched a power-play goal during Tuesday's 5-2 win over Tampa Bay in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Kessel has been an absolute beast in the playoffs, totaling nine markers, 10 helpers and 68 shots on goal. The 28-year-old is almost expected to reach the scoresheet at this point, as he's done so in 13 of 17 contests to date. The 2006 No. 5 pick will be one to watch in Game 7 on Thursday at home.
