2018-04-15 analysis A standout with AHL Syracuse, Peca scored a pair of goals and five points in 10 NHL games during the regular season. It's unlikely that the 5-foot-8 forward suits up during the playoffs, but Ryan Callahan's injury could open the door for an opportunity.
2018-04-15 update Peca was called up to the big club roster Sunday, Joe Smith of the Athletic reports.

2018-02-21 analysis Peca was rendered a healthy scratch for the prior two contests, so he'll be better off in the minors, where he can pick up substantial playing time. The rookie has shown well in limited action this season -- he's averaging 13:40 of ice time -- having accumulated two goals and three helpers over 10 games. He's mostly been deployed with the AHL's crunch, though.
2018-02-21 update Peca was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
