Screen Shots: Rich Clune, Phil Kessel and Ottawa's Hot Summer | The Hockey News
Adam Proteau looks at the retirement of a fan favorite in Rich Clune, what Phil Kessel's future looks like and the changes to make the Ottawa Senators a team to watch in 2022-23.
However, when it comes to Kessel, it may behoove a playoff-contending team to sign him sooner than later. The 34-year-old, two-time Stanley Cup-winner struggled to post his usual amount of offense last season, but that may be because of the awful Arizona Coyotes team he was playing on. Only two seasons ago, Kessel scored 20 goals and 43 points in 56 games, and although he scored only eight goals in 82 games in 2021-22, Kessel did generate 44 assists. He still has something left in the tank, and if he’s utilized properly, he can be an asset for a Cup contender.
Hi, Phil Kessel. Nashville is nice.
