There is a horse named ‘ThankyouKessel’

As hockey fans await whether the news with CBA negotiations is good or bad, here’s something that will at least make Bruins fans grin.

Bruins fan Joe MacIsaac owns and trained a harness racing horse that runs frequently in Toronto. The name of the horse? “ThankyouKessel.”

“ThankyouKessel” is of course the chant that fills TD Garden whenever the Leafs are in town, as the trade of Phil Kessel [1] to Toronto in 2009 netted the B’s three draft picks that ended up becoming Tyler Seguin [2], Jared Knight and Dougie Hamilton.

Here’s video of the horse and the owner, from Greg Wyshynski and the fantastic folks at Yahoo! Sports’ Puck Daddy [3] blog.
