Transcipt of Kessel chat on NHL.com
Please note: This transcript appeared on NHL.com on June 24, 2006.

Phil Kessel participated in a short chat session on NHL.com moments after the Bruins drafted him in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft in Vancouver.

Moderator:
Boston pick Phil Kessel joins us now. Kessel was taken fifth overall by the Bruins.

puckhaseyes:
What position do you think you would best fit you on Boston?

Phil Kessel:
I can play both wing and center, so it doesn't matter. Wherever they want me to play is fine with me.

canucker_7:
Hey Phil, congrats, what do you like best about the Bruins club?

Phil Kessel:
I'm happy because it's a club that's been around a long time. They are a classy organization with a lot of pride and tradition. Hopefully one day I'll help them get the Stanley Cup again.

fs2002rulz:
Hey Phil, congratulations on being drafted 5th overall. Which player are you looking forward most to playing with?

Phil Kessel:
Patrice Bergeron. I've played against him and he's an unbelievable talent.

brendanlarosa6:
Phil, now that you have been drafted 5th overall are you going to play with a chip on your shoulder because four teams passed on you?

Phil Kessel:
Not a chip. I'm going to show them it was a bad decision to pass me up and that Boston got a great pick.

sp00ner:
What was your favorite team when you were a child?

Phil Kessel:
I didn't have one and just enjoyed watching/playing hockey. To be a Bruin now is very rewarding.

fleury29:
Who was your idol as a child?

Phil Kessel:
You idol all the greats: Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Mike Modano. I've always liked the game's greats and it will be a thrill to play guys of that caliber.

Thanks Phil for stopping by.
