Inti Pestoni (born August 8, 1991) is a Swiss professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the ZSC Lions of the National League (NL).
Brought up as a youth within the Ambri-Piotta club, Pestoni was re-signed to a further two-year contract extension on February 27, 2012, to remain under contract with Ambri until 2016.
In December 2013, Pestoni was loaned to Genève-Servette HC for the 2013 Spengler Cup, which he would eventually win. He played a huge role in the title, tallying 4 points (1G/3A) in 4 games. He was again loaned to the reigning champion for the 2014 edition and scored 3 goals to lead Geneva to its second title. He was also named to the tournament All-Star Team.
After 8 seasons and 330 games with Ambri-Piotta, Pestoni agreed to a three-year contract with the ZSC Lions.
On October 5, 2016, the ZSC Lions announced that Pestoni would be suspended for five weeks due to poor physical conditions. During that span, he'll have to participate in an intensive off-ice training in order to lose weight and increase his fitness level. Pestoni eventually returned to game action on November 11, 2016, against his former team, HC Ambrì-Piotta, at the Valascia. The day after that, on November 12, 2016, Pestoni scored his first goal since his return.
Pestoni is a huge soccer fan and roots for both the Swiss national team and AC Milan.
On January 8, 2017, Pestoni missed his team's afternoon game as his girlfriend Carolina gave birth to the couple's first child.
