PRINCETON, N.J. — Greenville Swamp Rabbits forward Liam Pecararo has been named the Inglasco ECHL Player of the Week. A hat trick and an assist on Saturday, coupled with multi-point effort on Friday against the Atlanta Gladiators earned him the league's top honor of the week.The 23-year-old Massachusetts native ranks second among rookie scorers, and second among players in the entire ECHL in scoring with 11 points (8 goals, 3 assists). He is shooting an absolutely absurd 53.3% on the season. Five of his eight goals have come on special teams (3 power play goals, 2 shorthanded goals).Pecararo is currently riding a five-game point streak.He earned his stripes under legendary head coach P.K. O'Handley and the Waterloo Black Hawks, where he helped lead the team on two deep playoff runs, including a berth in the 2014 Clark Cup Final. His senior season at Northeastern University saw him put up nearly a point per game, and helped lead the way to a Beanpot championship, a Hockey East championship, and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.On behalf of Pecararo, a case of pucks will be donated to a Greenville youth hockey organization by Inglasco, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000–01, Inglasco has donated more than 41,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.
