Brett Pesce was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the third round in the NHL Draft in 2013.

After tallying just 6 points in his Freshman season with the University of New Hampshire, Brett Pesce put up 21 points in his Sophomore year in college.

Brett Pesce embraced a much bigger role in his second year with UNH in 2013-2014. That increased playing time led to much better stats and much better performance overall.

The 19-year-old defenseman isn’t flashy by any means, but he does many things very, very well. He jumped up the Carolina Hurricanes’ prospect rankings this past season with a very solid performance with UNH.

UNH captain Eric Knodel had this to say about Carolina Hurricanes prospect Brett Pesce:

“I love playing with Brett. Last year when he was a freshman, I played with him the majority of the year. I really know how he plays and we feed off each other very well. It’s been working well for us.”

Brett Pesce will be a Junior with UNH next season.
