Playing career[edit]

Undrafted from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, on May 20, 2009, he was signed as a free agent by the Carolina Hurricanes to a three year entry-level contract.[1]

After spending three-year within the Hurricanes organizational affiliate's, Pistilli without an extension was signed to a one-year ECHL contract with the South Carolina Stingrays on September 21, 2012.[2] During the 2012–13 season, Pistilli compiled 23 points in 35 games for the Stingrays before he was traded back to the Everblades as part of a deal for Matt Beca on December 31, 2012.[3]

On September 8, 2014, Pistilli moved to his third ECHL club, in agreeing to a standard player contract with the Fort Wayne Komets.[4] After a bright start to the 2014–15 season with the Komets, producing 13 points in 12 games, Pistilli returned to the AHL in signing a professional try-out contract with the Norfolk Admirals on November 17, 2014.[5]

On July 15, 2015, with the Komets unable to match interest abroad, Pistilli agreed to a one-year contract with Danish club, Esbjerg Energy of the Metal Ligaen.[6]
