NCAA Game Night: 11-4-11

A streak reaches double digits for one player while another starts his season with a bang as all seven NCAA teams with Lightning prospects were in action.

Prospect of the Month (October)

Bolt Prospects would like to acknowledge one monster who has been mashing his way all through October. Some Bolt Prospects readers felt tricked this past week when we didn't name this prospect the Player of the Week, but we were holding a treat in reserve. True, there were several worthy honorable mentions who scared up some excitement along the way. There was the wolf man, Brett Connolly, who came out of nowhere to crack the Lightning's NHL roster. There was the evil genius, Mark Barberio, and his stylish 2 goals and 11 points in 10 games. And, there was the leprechaun, Matthew Peca, who got his own pot o' gold today when he was named the ECAC's Rookie of the Month.

But the nail in the coffin came when the AHL gave a certain power forward (sort of a pale Incredible Hulk) a minor award (hardly worth mention in the same breath as Bolt Prospects' Prospect of the Month).

Peca is ECAC's Top Rookie for October

Quinnipiac College's Matthew Peca was honored by ECAC Hockey with a first-ever Fischer Hockey Monthly Award - Rookie of the Month.

Peca, a freshman forward and seventh round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in the summer, has had an impressive first month to his NCAA career with eight points (3 goals) in eight games. He has at least a point in the last seven games.

Last week, Peca was honored with the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week award.
