The Penguins took a photo of Phil Kessel in his new uniform on Monday and tweeted it out. He looked frumpy, frowny and maybe a little doughy. So basically, he looked like Kessel.

The photo is above. With the pic the Pens tweeted "we like your style" in regards to Kessel's garb. Clearly they were talking about his khaki shorts.

The point of this was to get fans excited about Pittsburgh’s newest star. Instead it led to a bunch of hysterical photoshopped versions of the picture. Because let’s face it, there was absolutely nothing inspiring about that shot.

So we perused the interwebs and tried to find some of the more hilarious Kessel photoshops.

Kessel, man … legendary outlaw 

Kessel is so unlike Star Lord that this had to be done. He’d probably screw up the entire mission. (S/t MikeyJ_MMA)

I dub thee Kessel and wife

Kessel is sort of American hockey royalty. He also has a similar hairline to the royals. (S/t @PuckStopUK)

These are a few of his favorite things …

Is there much more to Kessel than video games, hot dogs, hamburgers, fishing and golf? (S/t @EvgeniMalkinEgo)

Phil, if you were a hot dog, and you were starving, would you eat yourself?
