Among the Springfield Falcons, Theo Peckham is the really interesting prospect. A kid who was drafted as a bit of a reach pick by Edmonton, he’s improved each season since the draft and is now an early option outside the big 7 at the NHL level.
I’ve written a few posts about him (he’s ranked #3 on my top 20) and he’s an example of a player who has tracked well by both scouting report and statistics over a long period.
I don’t know if he’ll play much (or at all) during this callup, but it’s another step on the long climb to the show.
Come the fall, I expect he’ll be a strong option for the Oilers roster.
