Former Penguins winger Phil Kessel is thanking the city, fans and teammates he was a part of for four years.

On Monday, the new Arizona Coyote said on Instagram:

“Pittsburgh, the fans, my teammates, and ownership. I just want to thank you for an incredible run. The last 4 years have been nothing short of amazing. Growing up as a kid my dream was to win The Stanley Cup. Well, we won 2, back to back! I’m gonna miss the fans, the city and my teammates. Thank you for all your support over the years. I will never forget it!”
