Phil Kessel: Stanley Cup champion, inspiration for baby names.

Kessel Ryan Hillman was born Mother’s Day in Pittsburgh to parents Nicole and Adam, who opted to name their son after the Penguins‘ popular winger, according to WTAE Pittsburgh.

“The perfect name for our son,” Adam Hillman said.

Just over 24 hours after Kessel’s birth, his namesake scored the game-winning goal for Pittsburgh in Game 2 of its conference final versus the Ottawa Senators.
