Phil Kessel joined the Doug & Wolf Show on 98.7 Arizona Sports on Tuesday to discuss the trade that sent him to the Coyotes, and more.
“First and foremost, you’ve got to do whatever’s best to help the team," Kessel said of joining the Coyotes. "You do that first and I think the other stuff comes.”
“I just do what I kind of do. I don’t necessarily change my game ever,” Kessel said. “I just go out there and play my game, and hopefully I can produce points and score goals and help the team win. That’s basically it. I don’t think I really need to change for anything and just keep on doing my thing, I guess.”
Coyotes president and CEO Ahron Cohen also appeared on the show:
“We were talking about this the other day: This very well might be the biggest blockbuster trade in our team’s history,” said Cohen. “You bring in one of the marquee players in the league and guy that’s been very good for a very long period of time.
“I think our Twitter followers jumped quite a bit after the trade, and certainly getting a lot of people reaching out on a national level and other people in the league congratulating us. It’s a big name, and I think this is good. This is good for Arizona sports fans and good for Coyotes fans everywhere, because they see us really making some moves in the right direction.”
