Quinnipiac men's ice hockey freshman Matthew Peca (Petawawa, Ontario) was the subject in The Hockey News' feature "The Hot List" by Ryan Kennedy.
Peca was recently named the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week, for the second straight week, after leading Quinnipiac to a 2-1 ECAC Hockey Tournament First Round series win against Brown. Peca tallied a goal and four assists to become the first freshman in Quinnipiac history to lead the program in points in a postseason series. Peca also produced an impressive point streak in which he assisted on 10-consecutive Quinnipiac goals over four games before finding the back of the net on the Bobcats' 11th straight.
Quinnipiac is back in action this weekend when it travels to Hamilton, N.Y. to face Colgate in the ECAC Hockey Championships Quarterfinals on March 9-11. Each game of the best-of-three series is set for a 7 p.m. puck-drop.
