In addition, Di Giuseppe is tied for second on Hartford in goals, is tied for third in plus/minus rating, and ranks fifth in points in 2019-20. He has tallied a goal/point in each of his last three games with the Wolf Pack (three goals), and he has also recorded eight points (four goals, four assists) in his last 10 games with Hartford.
The 6-0, 193-pounder has skated in 150 career NHL games over parts of four seasons (2015-16 - 2018-19) with Carolina and Nashville, registering 14 goals and 27 assists for 41 points, along with 58 penalty minutes. Di Giuseppe skated in 24 games last season with the Hurricanes and Predators. He established NHL career-highs in goals (seven), assists (10), and points (17) with Carolina during the 2015-16 season.
The Toronto, Ontario native was signed by the Rangers as a free agent on July 18, 2019. Di Giuseppe was originally selected by Carolina in the second round, 38th overall, of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
