The Inside Scoop: Kessel Has Arrived

by Sam Kasan / Pittsburgh Penguins
Phil Kessel has arrived. The star winger is in Pittsburgh and visited the Pens new UPMC Lemieux Complex in Cranberry. Kessel received a tour and met some team staff while the rest of his teammates were on the ice for an informal skate. He came out to see his new squad briefly. I can't wait to see him strap on the laces and join his new teammates.

Meanwhile, there were a couple of new arrivals for the Pens on the ice, which included forward Patric Hornqvist and defensemen Sergei Gonchar and Derrick Pouliot. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin also took part in the informal skate and afterwards jumped on a plane for the NHL Media Tour held in Toronto.

Here are some pics from today's practice.
