2018 Fantasy Outlook
Peca inked a two-year deal with the Canadiens on July 1 after failing to crack the Bolts lineup in his time in their system. At 5-foot-8 and 178 pounds, Peca is a fire-hydrant type, but he does have some intriguing upside. His speed and vision has helped him deliver three-straight 40-plus point seasons in the AHL. Peca will vie with Jacob de La Rose for the role of fourth-line pivot, and he'll help on the penalty kill. But he won't help in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $2.6 million deal with the Canadiens in July of 2018.
Active Friday

January 19, 2019
Peca started in place of the suspended Paul Byron on Friday and had two hits over 11:51 of ice time in a 4-1 win over Columbus.
ANALYSIS
Byron will miss the next two games, so there could be more opportunities for Peca, who has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in 27 games. Coach Claude Julien told Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette that Peca got the nod over Charles Hudon because of his penalty-kill ability.
