Blake Kessel Traded to Orlando

The Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL have acquired defenseman Blake Kessel from the Bakersfield Condors for future considerations.   The 24 year-old Wisconsin native, and brother of NHL forward Phil Kessel, was selected in the 2007 NHL entry draft by the New York Islanders.

The former USHL defenseman of the year played in the collegiate ranks for the University of New Hampshire between 2008 and 2011.

The big blueliner spent most of last season with the Trenton Titans scoring 41 points in 54 games to lead the league among defensemen.  He also briefly appeared with the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL in seven contests last season.

The Orlando Solar Bears are affiliated with the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Minnesota Wild.
