  • Penguins' Phil Kessel: Gets 700th NHL point with game-winner

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/18) Kessel netted the game-winning goal and had an assist Sunday against the Rangers.

    With the tally, Kessel has reached the 20-goal mark for the 10th consecutive season. The sniper has been on fire of late, scoring in three straight games and racking up seven points in that span. His goal Sunday was also the 700th point of his NHL career, as the 30-year-old remains one of the most dynamic scorers in the game. With 52 points and 168 shots on goal through 46 games, Kessel is as good as it gets in fantasy.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Continues power-play success

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/18) Kessel had a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- while finishing with a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Philadelphia.

    Kessel's 17th goal of the season opened the scoring just before the halfway point in the second period. All six of his points in the past six games have come with the extra man, but Kessel's been awful at even strength with a minus-8 rating over that stretch to bring his season mark to minus-9.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Strikes on power play against Columbus

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) Kessel scored his 16th goal of the season and added an assist -- both on the power play -- in Wednesday's shootout win over Columbus.

    Kessel continues to produce at a torrid pace and is now up to 41 points in 38 contests. The 30-year-old has racked up over half of his points with the man advantage and been credited with a whopping 142 shots on goal thus far. He's having one of the best seasons of his career and needs to be owned in all formats. There has only been one instance this season where the sniper has been held off the scoresheet in consecutive outings. Simply remarkable.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Picks up helper in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/17) Kessel managed an assist on the power play in Thursday's win over the Blue Jackets.

    Kessel's steady production continues, as the sniper has gotten on the scoresheet in all but three of his last 14 contests. He's racked up 20 of his 39 points this season with the man advantage and is producing at over a point-per-game pace. Kessel has been one of the best fantasy wingers and remains an automatic fantasy starter.

    Penguins' Phil Kessel: Adds goal in blowout win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/3/17) Kessel scored and posted five shots on net in a 5-1 victory against the Sabres on Saturday night.

    Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are heating up, but Kessel has been Pittsburgh's best player through the first two months. Kessel is tied for the team lead with 12 goals and has more multi-point games (eight) than games without a point (seven). Kessel has been reluctant to shoot at times with the Penguins, but this season, he's on pace to eclipse the 300-shot mark for the third time in his career and first time since 2013-14.
