"Benedict" Phil Kessel

Well, every source can't be wrong can they? is now also reporting that Kessel will be headed to the northern wilderness. I hope he gets eaten by a bear.

Phil Kessel, a native of Madison, Wisc., who seemed destined to be a University
of Wisconsin Badger, is heading to the University of Minnesota to become a
Golden Gopher, TSN has learned. The 17-year-old standout for Team USA at the
2005 World Junior Championship has scheduled a news conference in Ann Arbor,
Mich. for Friday afternoon, where sources have confirmed to TSN the skilled and
speedy forward from the American under-18 national program will announce he's
committing to the University of Minnesota for next season.

Congratulation to Kessel for reaching depths heretofore unreachable by any but Stuart Scott. I hope you never see the ice my friend.
