This has been a long time coming for a player that I have really been rooting for for the last two years and I do really think that he is a better hockey player than anyone on our fourth line by a significant margin. He agitates, he hits and he fights very well. He is also reasonably fast and decent defensively while putting up points in the AHL. I said two years ago he could be Marchand-lite and even though he has had injury after injury, I stand by that.
He might play Thursday and if that timeline is too tight, it will be shortly after that he makes his NHL debut.

The Pint will be an instant fan favourite.

I am also looking forward to seeing him play, I don't follow the Wolves closely so I havent seen him play, but I have only heard good things. He has sure had a tough run with injuries, hopefully it works out with him this time, we could definitely use some energy on this team right now.

Hope he can live up to expectations. Kid has had a rough go. It would be good if he can play well enough to stick.

Just saw someone comment on the story via facebook the suggestion was a fourth line of Pinnizotto Sestito Kassian, Guess they forgot they were two right wings and a left wing and would make for an extremely slow 4th line

This so called "average ahl'er" is going to tear it up along side lappy, maybe he can give lappy some hope in playing alongside a solid 4th liner

Pinizzotto is a center. He was centering Longpre and Jensen in tonight's Wolves game, and he'll likely come in to play between Sestito and Weise with Lappy staying on the 3rd and one of Raymond or Higgins centering the second.

Booth Higgins Kassian
Raymond Lapierre Hansen

We definately need some heart out there. Althoug Booth did nothing but impress me against the Blue Jackets yesterday. I know he didn't score, but IMO that was his best game wearing green and blue.

Here are some vids

I think he will be a Matt Cooke type who can fight.

Lol @ the last video. The woman doing the interview with Steve totally wanted to ask him out the whole time. I saw her last 2 (one?) questions a mile away :). Here's hoping he can crack the lineup and stick around for a bit. Wishful thinking until we see him play, but perhaps we have another Alex Burrows on our hands?

Pinn hasn't shown anything at the NHL level. He has only played a handfull of games in the AHL this year. Injuries seem to be a real problem. He seems to be game on the physical side but not that big. They can give him a look but I don't expect much.

Not crazy about the fact he wears a visor if he's a regular fighter, but whatever. He seems like he'll add some spark.

he hasn't played an nhl game so yeah, definitely hasn't shown anything yet. I'm all for him getting a shot over ebbett. when they were both playing in chicago at the beginning of the year, they both were noticeable players for the wolves. Lots of potential upside because of the type of game he plays. My expectations aren't huge either, i just think he's at least the outline of what we want in that position.

Almost 29 years old and not a single NHL game? Huh.

I got a good feeling that this guys going to surprise a lot of people with a very good all around game from what I've seen.
Weiss, and Ebbett don't do a whole hell of a lot any good and Pinizzotto will be better in every way possible.

Pinizzotto is a center.


Both the Canucks website and NHL.com list him as a RW. He's also called a winger in articles. Do you know if he has center experience before the one game you mentioned? Wonder if the Canucks asked them to try him on center.

Previous two seasons in the AHL, 83 points in 137 games, +58, 300 pm. Not bad for 'average'.

Awesome news because:

1) Me thinks he's Torres Lite
2) Ebbett can go away now

The Wolves and AHL list him as a center, because that is what he is playing. He's a center/winger or winger/center, however you want to look at it.
