BREAKING: Hurricanes Star Defenceman Set To Miss Significant Time

Many people coming into 2023-24 believed the Hurricanes to be the Stanley Cup favourite in the East, but after a rocky start to the year and a three game losing skid, things need to turn around soon in Carolina.

A massive blow



Unfortunately, Head Coach Rod Brind'Amour recently revealed devastating news, as it has been confirmed that defenseman Brett Pesce will miss significant time.

Rod Brind'Amour on Brett Pesce, who was re-evaluated for his lower-body injury.


"Bad news. I was hoping he'd be a day or two away, but that's definitely not the case."

Week-to-week?

"Way more than that. It's not good."


Pesce was off to a solid start this season with two points in five games following on from his career high of 30 last season, but now, a lower-body injury will keep him out of the lineup for what Brind'Amour describes as 'way more than' week-to-week.

With a deep roster, the Hurricanes can certainly stay afloat until his return, but if their defense that has given up 16 goals in their last three games continues to play like this, alarm bells may be ringing in Carolina.
