Francesco Pinelli's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - : "Has a lumbering skating style and a slower pace, but its almost a product of his analytical style. Always searching for soft ice. There’s top six upside here but I’d love to see the pace ramped up."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Jan. 23rd: "Pinelli is an elite skater with excellent puck pursuit, work ethic and a high compete level. The 17-year-old can contribute on the power play and penalty kill, and projects to be a reliable two-way player in the NHL."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 27th: "Great blend of skill and will. Kitchener played him on the wing as a 16-year-old last season, but he will return to his natural centre position upon resumption of play."

Caitlin Berry - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 12th: "Pinelli possesses a very well-rounded game for his age. He has a quick release and hard shot and can be a dual offensive threat with strong playmaking. Pinelli uses his good skating to change the pace of play and open up passing lanes."
