That is weird because anytime I see Kessel on TV off-ice he looks pretty normal. In this shot even his neck and shoulders look fat.... he looks like he's on the Dustin Penner Fatten Up For Winter program.
And yah those photos are turrible. Actually I blame the photographer because he/she has them in these slumpy high school yearbook poses that no professional athlete should ever use. The Jimmy Howard one looks like "Hey let's do something different here". The caption should say "I like man-nipples!"
