WATCH: Phil Kessel ends OT with 'video game goal'
Phil Kessel ended overtime just 34 seconds in when he used a move usually reserved for video games on the Colorado Avalanche to tally the game-winner.
|Phil Kessel is a polarizing guy -- some fans love him while others say you can't build a team around him, both on the ice or in fantasy. We beg to differ, particularly in the fantasy arena. Phil the Thrill is one of the most-consistent, elite players in the NHL. He has notched at least 20 goals in each of his last six seasons and would have had at least 30 in each if it wasn't for the lockout. He's also rung up at least 30 assists in each of his last four seasons and year-over-year, he's a model of consistency in SOG, shooting percentage, power-play production and more. Surprisingly, he does it the hard way - advanced metrics will show you that he creates all of this offense despite starting 37.8 percent of his shifts (2013-14) in the defensive zone. That's unheard of - he only started 28.4 percent of his shifts last season in the offensive zone, but finished sixth-overall in scoring and fifth in goals. Just compare those start zones to Patrick Kane, who scored fewer points despite starting 44.3 percent of his shifts in the opponent's zone (and just 19.4 percent in his own). Forty goals and 95 points will come either this season or next for Mr. Kessel, and perhaps will gain some respect around the league. (Updated 8/13/14) |
