Phil Kessel brings Stanley Cup to Toronto, Sick Kids Hospital; remains the best

New, comments

Nice guy, tries hard, loves the game. Emphasis on "nice guy".

Phil Kessel gets a little bit of extra time with the Stanley Cup he helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win. He spent his first day in his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin; then, he decided to bring the Stanley Cup back to Toronto.

The celebrations in Toronto aren't open to the public - but some old friends have come in for the good times.

See you soon @phil_kessel_81_

So many former Toronto Maple Leafs...

Most importantly, though? Kessel spent his day with the Cup in Toronto in the best way possible: at Sick Kids Hospital.
