I mentioned the ominous press release from the Kessel family earlier today regarding Phil Kessel. Throughout the day, rumors swirled about Kessel. Now it looks like at least one of those rumors have been confirmed.
CBS 4 in Boston is reporting that Kessel has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. The good news is that it sounds like it's the type of thing that was caught early enough that it is treatable and hopefully Kessel will be able to recover from this.
Best of luck to Phil as he tries to beat this.
