Senators' Matthew Peca: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was promoted to the active roster under emergency conditions Monday.

Peca will be available for Monday's game versus the Oilers. Being recalled under emergency conditions signals that he'll likely be in the lineup. The 27-year-old has played 18 NHL games over the last two seasons, posting three assists and nine shots on net.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Dropped to taxi squad again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was demoted to the taxi squad Tuesday.

Peca had played in three straight games for the Senators, in which he garnered one shot, five hits and two blocks while averaging 9:03 of ice time, but now figures to be scratched versus Montreal on Tuesday. The 27-year-old Ontario native figures to remain a fringe roster player the rest of the season, which will limit him to low-end fantasy value, at best.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Moves to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was promoted to the active roster ahead of Thursday's game versus the Flames.

Peca is eligible to play in Thursday's game, and he could take the place of Derek Stepan, who was placed on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. The 27-year-old notched an assist and three hits in his lone NHL game this year.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Returned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was reassigned to Ottawa's taxi squad Friday.

Peca made his season debut Thursday against the Maple Leafs, picking up an assist in 11:20 of ice time. The 27-year-old forward will likely spend the majority of the 2020-21 campaign on the taxi squad.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was promoted to Ottawa's active roster Thursday.

Peca could make his season debut as soon as Thursday against Toronto. He tallied two assists in 14 games split between the Canadiens and Senators in 2019-20.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Elevated to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was recalled from AHL Belleville and assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday.

Peca appeared in just 14 NHL games last season for the Canadiens and Senators, garnering two assists, seven shots and 15 hits. The 27-year-old center figures to be a depth option for the club and is unlikely to challenge for any serious minutes.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Shuffles to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators reassigned Peca to AHL Belliville on Sunday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Though Peca has resorted on the taxi squad to this point, he's yet to break into the lineup for a game this season. Last season the 27-year-old recorded just two points in 14 NHL games, so his absence from the top level won't affect things from a fantasy perspective.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Returns to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Senators on Friday.

Peca was traded from Montreal to Ottawa at the deadline last year, and the 27-year-old forward will stick with the Senators for the upcoming season. Considering the lack of forward depth for the Senators, he has a decent chance to stick with the big club when next season commences, but Peca likely will stick to the bottom-six. Over 73 NHL games, Peca has posted six goals and 13 assists.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Notched two assists before hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca scored a pair of points in nine games with Ottawa before the season was paused.

Two points in nine games isn't impressive, but given that the Senators just acquired him, the adjustment is understandable. Ottawa will be patient with Peca after trading for him from Montreal, but he's unlikely to help out fantasy-wise at the moment.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Adds helper despite late arrival
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca notched an assist in 9:00 during Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

Peca was acquired from the Canadiens at the trade deadline, and he was unable to get to Columbus' Nationwide Arena in time for puck drop. He was definitely there in the third period, drawing the secondary helper on Colin White's tally for his first point with his new team. It's also his first point in six appearances this season -- Peca doesn't project to make enough of an impact for fantasy owners to notice him in redraft formats.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Delayed en route to Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca will not play Monday's game at Columbus because of travel delays, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Peca was acquired Monday morning from Montreal, and if you were looking at him for a daily league, it might be a good idea to go elsewhere, as there's no guarantee when he will arrive for the contest against the Blue Jackets.

Senators' Matthew Peca: Heading to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators acquired Peca from the Canadiens in exchange for Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 seventh-round pick Monday.

Peca has spent the majority of the season with AHL Laval, recording 13 points through 34 games. According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Peca will join the big club and is expected to play in Monday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Sent down Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca was reassigned to AHL Laval on Wednesday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

Peca appeared in only five games with the Canadiens during this stint, missing a month due to a knee injury. He managed four shots, three hits and a minus-2 rating in that time. Peca's demotion indicates Joel Armia (hand) may be ready to return soon.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Limited ice time in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca had one hit and was minus-1 over 7:57 of ice time in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over Ottawa.

Peca returned to the lineup after missing 14 games with a knee injury and skated on the third line. He was getting regular shifts until the Senators took control of the play late in the second period. Peca played just 51 seconds in the third period and was stapled to the bench after being on the ice for Ottawa's game-tying goal.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca (knee) has been cleared to rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Flames, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Peca's return should go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, but it will provide the Canadiens with some depth up front. The 26-year-old pivot hasn't collected a point in four NHL contests this season, averaging just 9:23 of ice time, so there's little to suggest his fantasy stock is on the rise.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Part of morning skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca (knee) took part in Thursday's morning skate, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Peca has been sidelined since Dec. 12 and faces another three weeks of rehab, per the initial six-week prognosis laid out at the time he sustained the injury to his right knee. He is one of five Montreal forwards on injured reserve.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Sidelined six weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca will miss approximately six weeks due to a right knee injury.

Peca exited Tuesday's contest versus the Penguins and has apparently suffered a fairly severe injury to his knee. The details of the injury remain sparse, but he will leave the Canadiens shorthanded up front until some of the other walking wounded are cleared to return. With only 11 healthy forwards on the roster, Montreal will likely be inclined to recall another forward from the AHL ranks ahead of Saturday's game versus Detroit. Peca will be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Sitting out against Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca (lower body) is unavailable for Wednesday's matchup against the Senators, John Lu of reports.

Peca is on recall from AHL Laval, and he's failed to record a point while going minus-1 over four games. The Canadiens recalled Ryan Poehling to fill into Peca's role on the fourth line. Peca will aim to shake off this injury for Saturday's contest against the Red Wings.

December 11, 2019 02:56 AM
Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Exits game Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca left Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh with a lower-body injury and won't return.

Peca was protecting the puck at center ice when he seemed to lose his footing and limped off to the dressing room. The Canadiens play Wednesday against the Senators, so expect an update on his injury ahead of the matchup. With Jesperi Kotkaniemi (concussion) also dealing with injury, the team has just 11 healthy forwards for the time being.

Canadiens' Matthew Peca: Makes season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peca had one shot and one hit over 9:08 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

Peca was called up from AHL Laval earlier in the day and took Charles Hudon's spot on the active roster. He skated on the fourth line and helped set up a scoring chance for Nate Thompson late in the first period. While Jonathan Drouin (wrist) and Paul Byron (knee) are sidelined, forwards like Peca and Hudon will fill out the roster most nights but with very little fantasy expectation.
