Pesce scored a goal on a team-high six shots and blocked three shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

Pesce made it 2-1 in the first period, converting on a feed from Andrei Svechnikov. The 24-year-old defender has gotten involved in the offense early on, starting the year with a pair of goals and a helper in five games. He's also been a friend of his goalies, racking up 14 blocked shots. The two-way contributions could make for a solid addition in deeper formats if Pesce can keep the scoring going.
