WATCH: Leafs’ Phil Kessel scores hat trick against Anaheim Ducks

 

On October 1st of this year, Phil Kessel signed an 8-year $64 million dollar contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The deal thrusted Phil into superstar status on the pay scale. While fans rejoiced in glee, the streaky scorer started the season slow in the goals department, recording only 2 through the Leafs first 9 games. Last night against the Anaheim Ducks, Kessel broke free of his slump, displaying his explosive offensive gifts, burying 3 times in the Leafs victory.
