Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Garners assist Thursday

Pesce posted an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Rangers in Game 5. Pesce helped out on an Andrei Svechnikov tally in the third period. The assist ended a seven-game point drought for Pesce, who has been limited to solid defense for much of the second round. The blueliner has three points, 20 shots on net, 27 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 12 playoff outings.

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Closing in on 30-point mark

Pesce registered his 19th assist -- and 26th point -- of the season in Saturday's 7-4 loss to Colorado. Pesce could hit the 30-point mark this season with a strong push down the stretch. Not bad for a guy who doesn't see any real power-play time. Pesce's not an elite fantasy option by any stretch, but he's a dependable mid-tier defenseman in most formats.

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Powers Canes to victory Saturday

Pesce collected a goal and an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Blues. Pesce's second-period marker snapped a five-game pointless streak and proved to be the eventual game-winner. Now with 22 points in 53 games, Pesce still has a shot at cracking the 30-point plateau this year, despite missing 12 games due to injury and COVID-19 protocols earlier in the season.

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Celebrates game-winning tally

Pesce earned the game-winning goal in overtime Monday, helping the Hurricanes to a 4-3 win over the Flyers. The American defenseman has four goals this season with half that total credited as game-winners. Pesce isn't the most coveted blueliner among the Hurricanes in fantasy hockey -- we consider Tony DeAngelo and Jaccob Slavin more prominent options -- but he has a knack for delivering in the clutch.

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Scoring drought continues

Pesce was held off the scoresheet for the sixth consecutive game Saturday against the Devils. Now with 13 points in 29 games, it will be a stretch for Pesce to hit the 30-point mark given his current pace. He continues to skate on the Canes' second defensive pairing with Brady Skjei, but isn't currently seeing any real power-play time, so that will certainly hinder his scoring totals going forward.

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Helpers in consecutive outings

Pesce logged an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Flames. Pesce set up Jesper Fast for the Hurricanes' first goal of the game. The 27-year-old Pesce has looked solid on offense lately with a goal and three assists in his last five games. The defenseman is up to 11 points, 39 shots on net, 22 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating in 20 contests. He'll have some appeal in deeper formats as a depth option on the blue line.

Pesce missed seven games between Nov. 30 and Dec. 12 after landing on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list, but with 10 points in 19 games overall, he's been a relatively consistent point producer whenever he's been in the lineup.

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Cleared to rejoin team

Pesce (COVID-19 protocols) has been cleared to resume practicing but won't join the traveling Hurricanes in Canada. Pesce's return comes at a bad time for Carolina as the team has three contests remaining in its four-game swing through Western Canada. As such, Pesce won't be able to get back on the ice until Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota. Once back in the lineup, Pesce should get back to logging over 20 minutes per night while linking up with the No. 2 power-play unit.
