Quinnipiac men's ice hockey junior Matthew Peca (Petawawa, Ontario) was named the Quinnipiac Athlete of the Month for February.
Peca led nationally-ranked No. 6 Quinnipiac men's ice hockey in goals (5), assists (7) and points (12) while also leading ECAC Hockey and ranking fourth among all NCAA Division I players. Peca also put together the only six-point game in NCAA Division I hockey this season when he carved up St. Lawrence to the tune of two goals and four assists. His six points in the Bobcats' win was also a program single-game record.
In the Bobcats win against St. Lawrence, Peca became the 37th Quinnipiac player all-time and 23rd at the Division I level to reach the 100-point mark for his career. He also became the first junior since Brandon Wong in 2008-09 to do so.
Peca was also named the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week on Mar. 4, 2014. This season, he leads the Bobcats with 22 assists while ranking fourth with 34 points.
