Phil Kessel is a three time Stanley Cup Champion and there is absolutely no one who can take that away from him. Kessel is also the current holder of the NHL's Ironman streak. Kessel has played in 1,064 consecutive games, a streak which began in November of 2009.

After capturing the Stanley Cup with the Vegas Golden Knights some fans expected Kessel to hang up his skates for the final time, however Kessel made it clear that wasn't his intentions. Instead Phil informed teams he fully intended to continue playing hockey, he also informed teams he was no longer worried about maintaining his current iron man streak.
Rumors have swirled that multiple teams still have interest in Kessel, but those teams are also currently limited by the salary cap situation. Due to the cap situation the team finds themselves unable to fit the veteran forward under contract. Today, Kessel finally broke his silence on the matter as only Phil Kessel can.
Obviously I'm a little surprised I haven't got anything, but it is what it is, right?

While most players would be upset by this process, Kessel instead embodies the same attitude he's had for his entire career. There is likely no more defining phrase when discussing Kessel than, "it is what it is."
Kessel shared he remains ready in game shape and is still looking for his next opportunity, which hopefully he finds sooner than later.
