Nicholas Griffin Petrecki (born July 11, 1989 in Clifton Park, New York) is an American ice hockey defenseman currently playing with the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League on loan from the San Jose Sharks in the NHL.
Petrecki played two seasons with the Omaha Lancers of the USHL before being selected 28th overall by the San Jose Sharks in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Previous to his seasons with the lancers he played with the CD Selects of the EJHL. Petrecki also played youth hockey for Clifton Park Youth Hockey Association (Eagles) and Troy Albany Youth Hockey Association.
He played NCAA Hockey with the Boston College Eagles, who won the NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship title in his first season with the team (2007–2008). During his time at BC he became well known for his strong defense as well as his heavy hits. He was known as the enforcer for BC's team, leading the Eagles in penalty minutes from 2007–2009. He also notably received a game misconduct for headbutting a University of Maine player in a game at Conte Forum. Additionally, he chipped in on offense, scoring two goals including the overtime game winner in BC's 2008 Beanpot Championship Game victory over Harvard, and scoring a goal to help push BC to a comeback victory over the Miami RedHawks in the 2008 NCAA Tournament.
