Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"Plays with a desire and heart far beyond his modest size and talent level."
-Red Line Report

Strengths: 

Peca's work ethic is off the page with tireless forechecking and courage to go into high traffic areas despite his lack of size. Versatile player excels on the point on the PP as well as on the PK. Has quick hands and the intelligence of a great playmaker.

Weaknesses: 

Listed at 5'8" and 155 lbs, Peca can get overwhelmed along the wall, even at the Tier II level he's played at with Pembroke.

Projection: 

We'd expect Peca to play 4 years at Quinnipiac of the ECAC and then have to bounce around a bit between the AHL and NHL, but he's the kind of quality depth player who can help you at all levels of the organization when called upon.
