Ten days removed from a playful Barack Obama centering him out at the White House, the famously introverted Phil Kessel again is the talk of the hockey world.

Kessel, who has two goals through three games this season, is featured in a video posted to Twitter Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Penguins digital team.

As you might expect, given Kessel's profile as an NHL star, the behind-the-scenes video has been making the rounds on social media.

The shy 29-year-old from Madison, Wisc., is not exactly known to be an open book around cameras, especially during his long tenure as a Toronto Maple Leaf.

However, Penguins staffers managed to get Kessel to let his hair down (pun intended) for a few minutes.

And it's fabulously entertaining.

The best clip shows Kessel engaging with the Penguins' social media team. He spins their "social media wheel" and lands on a card asking for two truths and one lie.

Kessel's truth? He loves country music and his dog is named Stella.

The lie? He is a wonderful singer.
