Found August 28, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Phil Kessel doesn’t expect to sign a contract extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs any time soon.

Kessel 25 is in the final year of his contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted agent after the 2013-14 season. The American sniper led the Leafs in scoring last season with a team-high 20 goals 32 assists and 52 points in 48 games. He also added four goals and two assists in seven post-season games. He played a major role in helping the Leafs end their post-season drought as the club made their first playoff appearance since 2003-04. With a new division and a full 82-game season Kessel told the Sporting News on Monday it will be more difficult for Toronto to return to the playoffs in 2013-14.

Kessel takes sexy shot for Team USA

First things first when it comes to Phil Kessel. Some of us may have overlooked the Maple Leafs forward during Toronto's first-round playoff series with the Bruins last spring.

Phil Kessel’s Team USA headshot could have gone better

I’m not sure if he was trying out a new ‘Blue Steel’ look or trying to convey a “I want to take off your pants and take you to Pleasure Town” message, but it would appear that Phil Kessel’s photoshoot for Team USA was a complete misfire on all accounts. ‘Murica has certainly looked better than this.
