Pinelli is a smart, two-way center with excellent skating abilities and high-end puck skills. He wants to win, has a bit of an edge, and does not shy away from any situation. Francesco’s dedication to his defensive play is evident; as Pinelli gets stronger, he should become more effective on his end.
