Over the offseason, the Pittsburgh Penguins traded forward Phil Kessel to the Arizona Coyotes for Alex Galchenyuk and prospect Pierre-Olivier Joseph.
Tuesday, Kessel arrived in Pheonix and was officially introduced a member of the Arizona Coyotes. While holding up his new Coyotes jersey for photographers, Phil smiled. But when asked to share a message to his new fans, Phil struggled to look, uh, thrilled, to be with his new team.

“Hi, Coyotes fans,” Kessel says with a pained look on his face. He shrugs his shoulders.
“Excited to be here. Looking forward to the season start.”
Suffice to say, social media had a field day.
Blink twice if you're being held against your will and in danger
