The foundation of Pinelli’s potency is his hockey sense. He supports his teammates, takes optimal routes to prepare one or two plays in advance, always finds soft ice in the offensive zone, and times his movements perfectly into those pockets of space to strike. With a no-drawback push release, he’s sending the puck home as a capable one- and two-touch finisher. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide Brother: Luca Pinelli

A crafty playmaker with the skill to manufacture passing lanes and thread pucks through the tiniest of openings, EPRinkside.com 2021
