Hockey fans know Phil Kessel is a good player, but also as a guy who doesn’t necessarily care about his diet.
Remember the time he celebrated his Stanley Cup victory by eating fresh sausage from the prestigious trophy:

Now another funny story about the veteran has surfaced in the past few days.
During the 2011-2012 season, Randy Carlisle was hired by the Leafs mid-season to finish the year with the team as interim coach after he was dismissed by the Anaheim Ducks.
The Toronto team clearly wasn’t having a good time, and the organization decided to spice things up at the time by hiring a tough guy towards their players. And let’s just say, Carlisle’s relationship with Lives star (Phil Kessel) didn’t get off to a good start.
Looks like Kessel used to drink Coca-Cola right in the players’ room. A few bubbles after exercising doesn’t hurt…right?
Of course I’m joking.
However, Carlisle didn’t necessarily agree with the habits I remind you of, the best player on the team at the time and decided to introduce a new rule in the locker room.
And it wasn’t complicated: no soft drink if you were in the room.
You’re probably thinking about it: Kessel didn’t like it. So much so that he trusted one of his teammates so much that he thought he’d retire if he wasn’t allowed to have a Coca-Cola in the room.
Listen to this piece from Spittin’ Chiclets, it’s worth the gold:
No soda in the locker room? Phil Kessel prefers to leave hockey.

We laugh and criticize Phil Kessel’s habits, but we have to believe that in the end it works. The man has earned nearly 1,000 career points (956) playing a regular season streak of…982.
So the record (989) set by Keith Yandel this season could be beaten next year.
However, it has to be questioned whether Kessel will still endorse the coyotes costume in 2022-2023. We know he’s been at the center of multiple trade rumors in recent months and is one of the only veterans present in the formation of Arizona.
His 52 points in 82 games last year may not be as attractive as it once was, but we’re talking about a Stanley Cup winner who was never injured and could do a fantastic service to a formation looking deep to align him.
It’s up to him to find out what awaits him in the future, or to study which teams will allow him to drink Coca-Cola after a practice or match in the room, such as.
