Kessel to Play in OHL Instead of AHL?
Rumor whirldwinds...reports are surfacing that the B's top pick Phil Kessel could end up playing in the OHL instead of the AHL if he doesn't make it as the Bruins 2nd line LW. The OHL is trying to convince the B's that it is better if he plays there than in the AHL. But, many scouts and fomer players are saying he has the skill to play in the NHL this year, and could easily transition to the AHL if needed. The OHL is a step below the AHL, but could be a valuable in his development. I'll keep you updated to see what else comes up. This probably won't end up happening as I think he will make the team.
