Peca had three points for the second consecutive games as the Bobcats handled the Knights, 6-3, on ESPN3. I caught the second half of the third period, just in time for Peca’s shorthanded assist. He intercepted a pass in the neutral zone and carried the puck straight at a defenseman in the slot. He tried a one-on-one move, but the puck was knocked behind him. Kellen Jones picked up the loose puck and wristed home a shot under the crossbar. The announcers talked about Peca’s abilities and how “yeah, he’s good” and “he’ll go pro” in a “isn’t it obvious” kind of way. They also joked that they’d tell friend Steve Thomas of the Lightning that Peca needs to stay in Connecticut for another year.

Sorry, Adam. Our reigning Prospect of the Week, who we lauded for not having lost in regulation since before Thanksgiving, dropped a close match in Madison on Thursday night. The Badgers only managed three shots in the third period, but one beat Wilcox for the game-winner. Minnesota had 40 of 50 first place votes in the last USCHO poll. Boston College is No. 2.

Prospect of the Week: February 3, 2014

We continue our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Prospect of the Week for February 3, 2014 is … Adam Wilcox, G, Minnesota Golden Gophers (NCAA – USA).

They call Adam Wilcox “the Iron Man.” The Gophers goalie and Tampa Bay Lightning sixth round draft pick (2011) has the Marvel Comics character on his mask and has played in nearly every game since starting his collegiate career with the University of Minnesota.
