Blake Kessel(2) Adirondack Phantoms

defenseman Blake Kessel(2), younger brother of NHL point leader and leading goal scorer Phil, was originally a 6th round pick of New York Islanders in the 2007 draft (#166 overall) but never signed with the team. Instead he was signed to an entry level deal with Philadelphia Flyers, but was reassigned their AHL affiliate Adirondack Phantoms to start the season.

He put in his first pro hockey goal last week to go along with a pair of assists giving him a 3 points in 14 games played.
