Looks like USA Hockey may have their phenom
His name is Phil Kessel.
He's 17 years old and has been unbelievable in the World Junior Championships thus far. He netted a hat trick tonight in the American's 8-2 win over Sweden, including a goal that was so sweet it brought me off of my couch. Even more amazing when you consider that most of the guys he's playing against are 2 years older than he is.
He's not draft eligible until 2006, but this kid is getting some hype Sidney Crosby style. He's currently being recruited by Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin & Boston University.
Keep it up kiddo!
