2018-11-09 analysis Peca scored his first goal in a Montreal uniform and registered his second multi-point game. He's centered the fourth line this season, so scoring opportunities have been limited, but he was given a season high of ice time Thursday, more than three minutes above his season average (10:28).
2018-11-09 update Peca had a goal on three shots and added a short-handed assist in 13:54 of ice time in Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to Buffalo.
2018-10-16 analysis Peca had started the first three games before Tomas Plekanec replaced him Saturday, but there was a need Monday when Andrew Shaw caught the flu bug. He served as a winger on the fourth line and assisted on goals by Plekanec and Charles Hudon.
2018-10-16 update Peca was back in the lineup Monday and had two assists in Montreal's 7-3 win over the Red Wings.
2018-10-12 analysis Peca started the first three games but looks like he might take a seat Saturday night against the Penguins. In Plekanec, coach Claude Julien has a good faceoff man, who can help improve the team's winning percentage (38%) on draws. Peca won 1-of-6 in Thursday's loss and just 33.3 percent for the season.
2018-10-12 update Peca was replaced on the fourth line by Tomas Plekanec at Friday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
2018-10-09 analysis Peca is centering the fourth line between Charles Hudon and Andrew Shaw. The 25-year-old center signed with Montreal, which was looking to play a fast-paced game, something that appealed to Peca. "They just stressed that they wanted to play a more fast-paced game, a little more relentless kind of in-your-face hockey," he told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette. "So when they told me that I was pret
2018-10-09 update Peca is minus-1 while averaging 10:54 of ice time and winning 41.7 percent of his faceoffs over the first two games.

2018-09-29 analysis Peca was bothered by a groin injury earlier this week, but that's evidently no longer an issue. The 25-year-old pivot, who notched two goals and five points in 10 games with Tampa Bay last campaign, will likely open the season skating in a bottom-six role if he's able to secure a spot on the Opening Night roster.
2018-09-29 update Peca (groin) will be in the lineup for Saturday's preseason finale against the Senators.

2018-09-26 analysis Peca's injury isn't believed to be serious, so it shouldn't keep him sidelined for long. The 25-year-old forward will hope to return to the lineup for Montreal's preseason finale Saturday against the Senators.
2018-09-26 update Peca is day-to-day with a minor groin injury, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.
2018-09-20 analysis The 25-year-old got off to an impressive start in his bid to crack the Habs' opening-night lineup. Peca never got much of a chance in Tampa Bay, scoring three goals and seven points in only 20 NHL games over the last two seasons, but his 134 points in 204 career games for AHL Syracuse since 2014-15 suggest he could provide a bit of offense in a bottom-six role if he does break through with Montrea
