Bolt Prospect of the Week: March 3, 2014

We continue our Bolt 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 March 3, 2014 is … Matt Peca, C, Quinnipiac Bobcats (NCAA - USA).

Lightning prospect Jonathan Drouin is a point machine set on automatic, but even Drouin hasn’t done what Matt Peca did this week.

Peca, a seventh round pick of Tampa Bay in 2011, had a six-point game on Friday as his Quinnipiac Bobcats toppled St. Lawrence University, 8-0. Even the snowman on the scoreboard was impressed with Peca’s performance.

NCAA Game Night: 3-1-2014

Harvard Crimson 2 @ No. 11 Cornell Big Red 3 (OT)

F Brian Hart, HAR: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 28 GP, 6-8-14, -5, 18 PIM

Hart helped Harvard to an early 2-0 lead, but the Crimson gave it up and eventually lost in overtime to Cornell, 3-2. Former Bolt prospect Kirill Gotovets had a minor penalty for Cornell. He has three assists in this, his senior season. Speculation is Chicago won’t sign him and he’ll go to Europe to play. He’s from Belarus and has appeared in the World Championships for his home country.

F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: Did not play
Season totals: 19 GP, 1-6-7, +3, 23 PIM

2012-2013 totals: 29 GP, 2-8-10, E, 20 PIM

UND failed to clinch the first Penrose Cup, falling to SCSU, 3-1 after the Huskies scored late into an empty net. The Huskies moved into a tie in the conference, leaving the title up for grabs for another week. UND plays Western Michigan; SCSU has Colorado College.

Season totals: 36 GP, 12-22-34, +5, 16 PIM
2013-2014 totals: 39 GP, 15-15-30, +14, 36 PIM

That’s hockey: One night after putting a snowman on the scoreboard vs St. Lawrence, the Bobcats could only score one against Clarkson. Matt Peca had an assist on QU’s only goal. He was coming off a 6-point night against the Saints.

Penn State Nittany Lions 1 @ No. 2 Minnesota Golden Gophers 2

G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Did not play
