Carolina Hurricanes Rumors: 2 Possible Landing Spots for Brett Pesce

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Brett Pesce is one of the biggest trade candidates heading into the final month of the offseason. The Hurricanes are expected to move him if he does not sign an extension before the start of the season. Due to this, let's go over two teams who could be possible landing spots for the right-shot d-man.

Dallas Stars: The Dallas Stars want to add another top-four right-shot defenseman before the start of the season and have been connected to Pesce this summer because of it. He would be a major addition to their defensive group if acquired and make them look stronger on paper as they aim to go on a real run in 2024. 

Edmonton Oilers: The Edmonton Oilers have also been linked to Pesce this summer. It ultimately makes sense, as his steady defensive play would make the Oilers far more difficult to go up against. With the Oilers in win-now mode, don't be surprised if they step up their efforts to land Pesce before the regular season officially is here.
