Are you excited for the Carolina Hurricanes blueline yet? No? Why not? The Carolina Hurricanes certainly are. They showed their excitement again, signing Brett Pesce to a new 6-year, $24.15 million contract extension.
Over the past couple of seasons, the Hurricanes defense has really flown underneath the radar of even the poolies, some catching on mid-season and picking them up in Waiver Drafts. Last season, the 22-year old finished with 20 points in all 82 games played, which had him ranked 84th among all defensemen in scoring and we're expecting to see much of the same from him in the coming season, so be sure to have him somewhere prominent on your list.
