RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
With 16 points in his first full season with the Hurricanes, the 21-year-old Pesce had a decent campaign offensively, but more importantly, he cemented himself as a top-four defensive option, averaging almost 19 minutes per game. Unfortunately, Pesce suffered a lower-body injury that landed him on IR at the start of February and failed to put much together offensively after he returned, notching just four assists over his last 28 games. The 21-year-old will be back in a similar role with the Canes this upcoming season; however, his fantasy value remains limited to deeper formats for now.
