The big news of the week was obviously the Brett Pesce’s six-year contract extension. In my second article on Pesce and the signing (with link to my initial thoughts too), I called Pesce a “sixth star” in positive sense like Glen Wesley from Hurricanes’ history or Niklas Hjalmarsson from NHL success more recently.
As a 22-year old with only two years of professional experience under his belt, Pesce could well find a higher gear offensively and gain more notoriety, but if he does not, he seems destined just to be a really good hockey player who makes his team win.
The Thursday Coffee Shop makes sure that Brett Pesce gets his share of attention at least this week.

(Realizing that this was bandied around to some degree in comments earlier this week) What are your thoughts on Brett Pesce’s contract terms?
Brain teaser: In terms of other NHL defensemen or former Hurricanes who would you compare Pesce’s game to?
Do you think Francis is now done for the summer in terms of extending players early, or do you think it is possible that we see another deal for either Noah Hanifin or Elias Lindholm?
