Phil Kessel is a Stanley Cup Champion.
Before he became a Stanley Cup Champion, though, he was just a kid. Probably one who had Stanley Cup dreams - but still, just a kid.

The important part here is: look, it’s little Phil! Scoring a goal!
Quality of the camera aside that’s actually a pretty great shot, though considering how often Kessel scores now, as a professional, I’d imagine his family had plenty of opportunities to get pictures of him putting the puck in the net.
It’s always great to see artifacts of NHLers from when there were small, though, and Kessel is definitely no exception.
