#94, Matej Pekar (C/RW)

Sounds like the username Mike Peca went with during one of our handle-tweaking phases.

Still the best arena sign ever:

 

“Mike Peca is bigger than your Peca.”

Extrapolating a career from one practice session is, well, unbelievably foolish. Wouldn’t it be great, though, if Pekar becomes the next Peca? The tweets and articles all point to skill applied with an edge.

Interview with Pekar.

I love it. When asked about the physicality with Dahlin, there was a twinkle in his eye, which reminds me of a trait in some of the best pests in the NHL comparing them to wrestling a pig: "You both get muddy, but the pig likes it."

I met a pot belly pig today while getting ice cream. A couple was walking it through town just like a dog. It joyfully gobbled up some sprinkles from the sidewalk.

I saw something this morning about Pekar returning to USHL Muskegon rather than proceeding to NCAA Miami for the season as originally planned.  Anyone know why?

He would not be eligible to play for Miami of Ohio until January for academic reasons I believe.

I think the plan would be to still attend Miami. Likely tied to rumors of him not being eligible until second semester.

Yep.  Just saw Baker's tweet.

Does this mean he can play in the prospect tournament?  Attend training camp?

He'd have to pay to stay in Buffalo and for all his meals I believe. Isn't the NCAA super nazis about stuff?

I don't know about that.  He was able to attend development camp on the team's dime, right?

I don't see why he wouldn't be eligible.  Mittlestadt was committed last season and he attended training camp no?

These things seem to pop up from time to time with the european imports.  If it is in fact the case, I'll give the kid credit for sticking with Miami instead of just jumping to UCONN instead.

 

And before anyone asks, I mention UCONN because they took on a couple guys a few years ago after they couldn't meet other school's admission standards.

I'd suspect there's either a slight language barrier or that school stuff from europe may have not transferred over to US standards as well as they hoped.  Think of it like a credit issue with colleges.

Edit: Ahh, crap, you're talking about participation in camp.  The college guys are free to participate in those all they want.  They just can't sign.

What are the rules which apply to bringing him up for regular season games with the Sabres.  If I read correctly, he is too young to play full time for the Amerks?

He's in Barrie until the end of their season at least.

The Sabres felt this was best for his development

With all those UFA contracts due up next season, I strongly suspect this kid will be in the wave of "replacements" that will be on the Sabres roster next season. Just a hunch.

I think a top 6 role in Rochester for him.

I don’t think he’s eligible for Rochester next season.

Why not?  I thought he was eligible for Rochester this year.  He was assigned to Rochester late last season, though he didn’t play a game.

He was assigned to Roc after his CHL team finished their season.  He has to complete his CHL eligibility before he can be assigned to an AHL team.

Yup, that stupid rule to prop up the CHL.
