Phil Kessel of Madison, WI is on an offensive tear at the moment for the Arizona Coyotes. In his last five games, Kessel has had five goals and three assists for eight points, and is finally starting to become the player the Coyotes were hoping for when they acquired him in a blockbuster deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins on June 29, 2019.
On Saturday, Kessel was brilliant as he notched his seventh career hat trick in a 4-0 Arizona win over the struggling San Jose Sharks. It was a special game for the Coyotes all around. Coyotes goaltender Adin Hill of Comox, British Columbia recorded his second career shutout in making 34 saves.
Kessel scored Arizona’s second, third, and fourth goals of the game, in notching a natural hat trick.
