Watch: Tiny Penguins Fan Says ‘I’m Phil Kessel, Mama’ In Adorable Video

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Forward Phil Kessel is a popular Penguin.

He is one of four stars chosen for one company’s Stanley Cup tee shirts. And this past week, a couple of fans got tattoos depicting Kessel with his favorite snack, a hot dog.

Now, a 2-and -a half-year-old boy as created a Phil Kessel web sensation.

“I’m Phil Kessel,” Edward Hurley announces in the viral video.

“Sometimes in the mornings, or whenever he’s watching hockey, or things like that, he’ll just run around the house, kind of hitting his stick around,” says his mother, Mallory Hurley. “And he’ll hear the name Kessel and different names and things. And he’ll just run around and, ‘Whoo!’ And he was taking a break.”

That’s when she took out the camera.

“He is funny. It was hard for me not to watch it a bunch of time,” she said.

She’s not the only one. The video has been watched thousands of times since it went out online.

“He started saying ‘Let’s go Pens’ at 18 months, and now he just runs round and plays hockey every day,” says his father, Ed Hurley.

Just like Phil Kessel.
