Kessel, Phil
Boston Bruins

As a 19-year-old Phil Kessel was diagnosed in early December with testicular cancer. However, Kessel maintained his focus and competed with the Bruins up until December 9th knowing he'd be admitted to the hospital days later. Following a successful surgery on December 12th, Kessel returned to the Bruin's line up after missing only 12 games. By the end of the 2006-07 season, he ranked among the NHL's rookie leaders with 11 goals and 29 points in 70 games and led all first-year players with four game-deciding goals in the shootout.
