  • Kessel recorded two goals -- one on the power play -- to go with two assists in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Islanders. Kessel dished out helpers in the first and third periods, sandwiching a middle frame in which he lit the lamp twice. This was Kessel's first multi-point effort since Nov. 17, but he's done a good job returning value in the meantime with points in six of the eight games in between. Offensive outbursts like these helped propel Kessel to a career-high 92 points last season, and he's on pace to break triple digits this season with 33 points through 27 contests.

  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Earns power-play assist
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kessel picked up a helper on the power play in Wednesday's 5-1 defeat of Dallas. With his marker, Kessel extended his point streak to six games and nine points. Of his 25 points this year, the Madison, Wisconsin native has tallied nine with the man advantage. Despite having set a career high last season with 92 points, the elite winger is actually on pace to exceed that number this year.

  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Continues to thrill
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kessel's two assists Saturday in a 6-4 loss to Ottawa extended his current point streak to four games and seven points (two goals, five assists). The Pens may be in a major slump right now, but Kessel keeps putting up points. And his 23 points in 18 games put him on track for a 100-point season. Phil really is a thrill. He's just that good.

  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Pots goal, assist
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kessel tallied a goal and an assist versus Tampa Bay on Thursday. Kessel has bagged two points in back-to-back games and it gives him five in his last three on the heels of a brief three-game pointless streak. The Madison, Wisconsin native has moved up to the second line with Sidney Crosby (upper body) out of action and seems to be gelling with linemates Jake Guentzel and Riley Sheahan.

  • Kessel scored a power-play goal and added an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Devils on Tuesday. The 31-year-old started the season strongly, but he only had one assist in his last four games, so it was nice to see Kessel back on the score sheet. Part of his recent struggles could be connected to the fact the Penguins have moved Kessel down to the third line in an attempt to give the Pittsburgh forward lines some balance. That doesn't entirely explain the scoring drought, though, as coach Mike Sullivan has jumbled his lines quite frequently, and Kessel has received some playing time with Sidney Crosby as well. Hopefully, though, Sullivan choses to keep Kessel on one line soon. The best case scenario for his fantasy owners would be to see Kessel back with center Evgeni Malkin.
