  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Practices without restrictions Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/24/16) Kessel (hand) returned to the ice for practice Friday without any apparent restrictions, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    After learning that Team USA would get knocked out of contending for a medal in the World Cup of Hockey, a tournament for which Kessel was snubbed, the star winger lit up social media with a scathing tweet that read, "Just sitting around the house tonight w my dog. Felt like I should be doing something important, but couldn't put my finger on it." It's not clear if he even would've been healthy enough to play in the latest international tournament, but he could have changed the narrative for an American team that went winless. After all, he was named the best forward in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, having scored five goals with three assists in six games. Kessel remains on track for Opening Night with the Penguins.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Questionable for start of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/29/16) Kessel (hand) was originally expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 campaign after offseason hand surgery, however that now appears to be in doubt, Josh Yohe of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports.

    An extended absence from Kessel would be minor set back for the Penguins, but as they demonstrated last year, in an 82-game grind there is plenty of time to get back on track from a slow start. Fantasy owners don't need to panic, the winger, if he misses time, is on track to repeat his 2015-16 production in which he tabulated 26 goals and 33 assists and could even improve on those numbers with a full season under coach Mike Sullivan.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Summer surgery complete

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/9/16) Kessel (hand) 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 CBSSports.com
    (7/8/16) 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 worth 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 CBSSports.com
    (6/6/16) Kessel dished out two assists 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.
