‘It’s worked out for both teams in the past’: Kessel traded for Seguin (Video)


Team Foligno shook up the world — well, the NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft world — on Friday night, orchestrating a trade to acquire Phil Kessel from Team Toews in exchange for Tyler Seguin.

“It’s worked out for both teams in the past,” Foligno said. “So we’re going to go with some history here.”

Foligno, of course, is referring to the trade that saw Kessel go to Toronto in 2009, a deal that saw Boston net the second overall pick at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft… which the Bruins used to select Seguin.

FYI, Alex Ovechkin is still on the board.
