Some players know their stats inside and out. Phil Kessel isn't one of them.

The affable Pittsburgh Penguins forward didn't initially realize he'd achieved a career milestone by playing Friday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It sure is, Phil. It sure is.

Kessel scored the overtime winner and potted two goals in the game, so it's fair to say he got the last laugh.
