Kessel Connected To An Original Six Team



A rumor posted on X by a new source has connected Phil Kessel to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Mark my words, he will be a Chicago Blackhawk shortly..




The Blackhawks recently lost both Taylor Hall to injury as well as Corey Perry to his release after the scandal. This has led to a major need for depth scoring and veteran leadership in the forward group. Phil Kessel could fill those gaps perfectly.

Kessel Could Fill A Massive Gap In Chicago



In Phil Kessel's career, he has been the embodiment of a successful professional. In Kessel's career, he has played 1,286 games scored 413 goals, and 992 points, and also won three Stanley Cups.

Kessel also possesses a 1,064 consecutive games played streak which is the longest active streak in the NHL. Bringing in a player of this caliber could be a fantastic mentor for the young Blackhawks squad. The Blackhawks could also allow Kessel to continue his games-played streak this is an opportunity he might not get elsewhere.

Kessel to Chicago while just a rumor at the moment feels like a good fit for both sides. The Blackhawks could also flip Kessel for assets at the trade deadline and allow him an opportunity to chase another Stanley Cup.
