Bruins sign Phil Kessel

Peter Chiarelli announced earlier today that the Boston Bruins have signed their first round draft pick, center Phil Kessel, to a multi-year contract. Phil Kessel, the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NHL draft, is a great addition to the Boston Bruins. "Phil is a player with world-class speed and gifted offensive talents" said Chiarelli, who we now know is on a first name basis with Kessel. (Just thought I'd mention it) Also, as I briefly mentioned on Friday, Kessel along with Bruins prospect Rask did incredibly well at the USA Hockey’s National Junior Evaluation Camp held every year in Lake Placid, New York. Hopefully Kessel, under guys like Patrice Bergeron will grow into an incredible center. (Yes I realize I can say this about every draft pick and every young player, but Phil Kessel really does sound like he has potential.)

Also, Bruins preseason games start in exactly one month! Their first game is against the New Jersey Devils, however the game is in Lowell at the Tsongas Arena. (Where the Lowell Devils (used to be Lock Monsters) play their games.)
