Penguins acquire Phil Kessel from Maple Leafs in major trade

PITTSBURGH (AP) Phil Kessel spent six years in Toronto trying to lift the Maple Leafs out of the churn of mediocrity.

All the goals - 181 of them while wearing a leaf on the front of his sweater - failed to turn Toronto into a contender or quiet the critics who wondered whether the talented forward cared enough or worked hard enough to justify his status as one of the elite players in the NHL.

That won't be an issue in Pittsburgh, not after the Penguins acquired the 27-year-old in a blockbuster trade on Wednesday they hope will rejuvenate Kessel's career while giving stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin a running mate that can come close to matching their pedigree and production.
