The Hurricanes’ third-round pick in this past year’s draft, Pesce just earned an invitation to the U.S.’s World Junior Championship camp and while he hasn’t earned a spot yet, he has a good chance.
The University of New Hampshire defenseman plays a strong defensive game like Austin Levi and also has the size at 6-foot-3. But also like Levi, Pesce doesn’t have much of an offensive game that needs to be improved on.
Pesce is still young at 19-years-old. Next season he’ll have the opportunity to play with the Checkers, if he is signed to an entry level contact or continue his career at New Hampshire.
