Hurricanes defenceman changes agents ahead of contract year

Carolina Hurricanes defenceman Brett Pesce is entering the final year of his contract and is currently set to become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2023-24 campaign.

The 28-year-old's current deal sees him earn $4.025 million per season, but his play on both sides of the puck warrant a bump in pay on his next contract and that's exactly what Pesce is hoping for after changing agencies on Friday.

According to David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, Pesce has changed his agent and will now be represented by Wasserman Hockey.

"#LetsGoCanes D Brett Pesce has new representation. He is now repped by Judd Moldaver, EVP of Wasserman Hockey. Pesce is entering the last year of his current contract." Pagnotta said in a tweet.

Pesce, a native of Tarrytown (New York) had arguably the best season of his NHL career thus far. He set a new career-high in points with 30 (five goals, 25 assists) while adding 43 penalty minutes, was a plus-11 and averaged 22:01 time-on-ice per night.
