Phil Kessel's first Peewee Game

New, comments


Phil Kessel's debut as a Leaf came last night against Tampa.  He was certainly in on the action: 23:50 on the ice, including 8:57 on the power-play.  He ended up with 10 shots on goal, two shots wide of the net, and seven shots blocked by the Lightning.

Surprisingly, those ten shots on goal aren't a season high: Alex Ovechkin had the most (of course) with 13 on October 15th; Malkin had 12 on October 20th; and Jeff Carter and Dustin Penner both had 11, on October 24th and 22nd, respectively.

As for the 23:50 TOI, that's not even a season-high for a Toronto forward.  Lee Stempniak logged 26:25 against Montreal on Saturday.
