Future Watch: Adam Pelech Hockey Rookie Cards, Islanders – The New York Islander’s organization has a big name in the form of Adam Pelech. This 6′-“2, well over 200-pound defenseman has a lot of talent and a large footprint on the ice. He was drafted 65th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. After spending four solid seasons with Connor McDavid on the Erie Otters he joined the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL for the 2013-14 season.
During his second year in the AHL he got the call up to the NHL and looked good this season. He played in a total of nine NHL games this year. However, he suffered an injury back in January that really derailed his season. It also prevented him from possibly earning valuable postseason playing time.
While possessing some offense in his game, the tough prospect from Toronto plays the position well, has a mean streak and can move the puck up the ice. In essence he’s a 21st century blue-liner with second-pairing capability at the height of his career.
Next year could be the year he catches on. Now he’s only 21 so it’s possible after the missed time he may need some more seasoning but the Islanders can use him in their lineup and he should have every opportunity to make the big club out of training camp.
Adam Pelech rookie cards can be found in several 2015-16 NHL hockey card products from Upper Deck. His Young Guns rookie card is part of the checklist in 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey. Other sets containing Adam Pelech NHL rookie hockey cards are: O-Pee-Chee Platinum, NHL ICE and Artifacts to name a few.
This video shows him sticking up for his teammates and more:
Pelech has played with Dylan Strome (3rd overall pick by the Coyotes in 2015), Alex Debrincat (projected first round pick this year), and Andre Burakovsky (23rd overall pick by the Capitals in 2013). He’s played with top talent at every level of his career and he’ll do the same in Brooklyn.
