Phil Kessel Nearing Contract Signing with Potential Return to The NHL

After an outstanding performance last year, Phil Kessel's future in the league became a lingering question.

Many speculated whether his record-breaking iron man streak would mark the end of his career, but Kessel made it clear at the beginning of the year that he still had a strong desire to continue playing. His passion for hockey and his commitment to mentoring younger players shine through.

According to TheLeafsNation, Pierre LeBrun recently shared an update on Kessel's outlook for the current season.

It appears Kessel remains optimistic about securing a contract, putting in the effort to join a team. Despite his impressive career, his eagerness to stay on the ice will likely lead to a new NHL contract.

The fact that Kessel, at only 36 years old, currently lacks a contract is surprising. With 992 points in 1286 career games, he stands on the brink of reaching the 1,000-point milestone. As a three-time Stanley Cup winner, Kessel has consistently proven himself as a valuable asset with a winning spirit.
