Brent Pedersen, LW
Hometown: Kitchener, ON, CA
Drafted: 2013 by Carolina 126th overall
October 2013- A big physical forward, with a booming shot from the point. Pedersen is a strong forward that plays the body hard and can drop the gloves when needed. Pedersen is not much of a scorer but he did make some strides this season, doubling his 2011-2012 point totals. Pedersen brings grit and size to the table, he also creates tons of room with his physicality and can maximize rebounds with his heavy stick, he also threads the needle exceptionally with a powerful slap shot.
Fantasy Outlook: C-
Pedersen has a big strong body, booming shot, and great vision from the point. In two to three years Pedersen could work in a third or fourth line checking role as the Hurricanes could use some grit, toughness and secondary scoring.
