I greatly enjoy Kale Kessy. He has been on my list of prospects that I always look forward to seeing at camps because he fits my ideal qualifications of a gritty, tough, two-way forward and he’s a BB, so hey, I’m in.
Here’s the problem: Kale was suspended 12 games for, in the opinion of the WHL, an obvious elbow to the head. Oy. And this isn’t the first time he’s had a multi-game suspension. Last season, Kale received 5 games on 10/7 and 4 games on 11/28. He also had a 1 game suspension in March for a game misconduct.
Oh, it goes back further. The season before last? 3 total games suspended.
Unfortunately, this pattern of behavior smacks of poor judgement. And we all know whose ass I constantly ride about poor judgment.
And in case you’re new and don’t know how I feel about Raffi, it’s basically this:
It’s not like roughness is Kale’s only skill. I mean, he has scored a goal in each of the two games he has played this season. Granted, that rate greatly exceeds his offensive prowess from the past two seasons (10g, 14a in 65games & 4g, 12a in 49games), but he doesn’t need to be quite this…………. Torres-esque.
KALE, PLEASE DON’T MAKE ME A HYPOCRITE. I NO LIKE IT.
