The hockey doldrums are well underway, and this month is off to an extremely boring start. There was even less news than usual the past week.
The Blackhawks had some minor news by officially signing Theo Peckham to a one-year deal worth $575K. The depth defenseman should spend most of his time in the AHL this upcoming season.
The Wild re-signed first-round bust...
With last week’s announcement that the Blackhawks had signed defensemen Theo Peckham and Mike Kostka, the organization’s pool of defenseman for the 2013-14 season is taking shape. Peckham, 25, was the 75th overall selection by the Oilers in the 2006 … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks, IceHogs Blue Line Decisions Coming appeared first on Committed Indians.
The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with forward Drew LeBlanc (la-BLAH) and on one-year contracts with defensemen Theo Peckham (PEHK-uhm) and Michael Kostka (KAWST-ka).
LeBlanc, 24, made his National Hockey League debut with Chicago in 2012-13, skating in two regular-season games after being signed by the club on April 12. The 2013 Hobey Baker Memorial...

The thought on everyone’s mind entering the game Friday night was, “What is going to happen tonight?” With the new additions and lineup shake-up, it was anyone’s guess.
The Nashville Predators snapped a three game losing streak Friday night by defeating the Edmonton Oilers, 6-0. During their losing streak, the Predators...
The summer to do list of the Edmonton Oilers must look a little something like this:
1. Improve defence
Through the 2011-12 season the Oilers faced a number of challenges, most of those stemmed from a weak defensive core. Especially with Ryan Whitney lost somewhat long term to a nagging ankle injury, and then a knee injury and then an ankle injury again, the...
from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, The media immediately coined the term, “The Quiet Room.” NHL officials proudly announced that the new protocol would be in place “starting tonight.”
That was on Wednesday, March 16, 2011.
Today, more than a year later, the NHL’s innovative concussion protocol is all just a fuzzy memory. And isn’t that ironic?
“Quiet Room?,” Edmonton...
Edmonton Oilers defenseman Theo Peckham suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.Peckham left the game shortly after taking a hit from Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash.The 24-year-old Peckham has appeared in 54 games this season, collecting one goal and two assists.
The Edmonton Oilers should have a few pieces in play today as GM Steve Tambellini continues to improve his club for future seasons. Sportsnet's Gene Principe suggests goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, defensemen Cam Barker and Theo Peckham are considered commodities. Forward Ryan Jones could also be available. TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports it's unlikely the Oilers will...

Oilers Injury Report
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, • A guy on the Leafs’ radar could be San Jose W Ryane Clowe. He has a cap hit of $3.625 million through next season, but the word is he might be someone the Sharks are willing to part with before the deadline.
Before anybody in San Jose picks up the phone to get GM Doug Wilson’s denial he’ll move Clowe, the belief is it would take more...

THE MIDWAY POINT
PRACTICE: Theo Peckham, Ryan Jones, Shawn Horcoff & Head Coach Tom Renney
The Edmonton Oilers have some depth issues on defense. That isn't news, hell the summer of 2006 was a long time ago. I'm wondering about so many young defenders on the current 6. Smid-Gilbert is a veteran duo, and after that it's a lot of inexperience (Peckham, Petry and Teubert) and minor league experience. I'm wondering if it might be an idea to grab another AHL...
Kids lie. They all do. If you think your kids don't lie you are either lying to yourself or you are in for a fun ride once they become teenagers. Plus you are dumb.I was a born liar. Still am. Pathological almost. And the kids take after me. Although it is pretty funny listening to my wife sputter 'why do they lie?!' while glaring at me and then later that night over...
Heading onto the ice last night for a little Capsule action I tweeted that the Oilers' game was going to be a bloodbath. Four defencemen out, Theo Peckham on the second pair, four games lost on a row, each one worse than the last, nobody scoring, best team in the league in town, pissed off after coming off of a loss.Bloodbath, right?After hauling myself out of a loss where I...
The list of Oilers forwards stuck offensively is real and it's spectacular: Taylor Hall hasn't scored in November, Magnus Paajarvi is lost and the Edmonton Oilers are a putrid offensive team. Their 41 goals is 9 off the league average (source: hockey-reference) and the early magic of the GA is lost too (although their 43 GA is still miles better than the league average)....

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP)-- The Phoenix Coyotes played their best hockey of the season for two-thirds of the game, then held on to derail the steamrolling Edmonton Oilers.
Daymond Langkow, Adrian Aucoin and Boyd Gordon scored Saturday night in a 4-2 victory that snapped the Oilers' six-game winning streak.
Ray Whitney added an empty-net goal with 11 seconds left. Mike Smith had...
Neil Livingston at C&B has the news: ColtenTeubert is on the way to the Oilers. Teubert is an interesting player for Edmonton, his old AHL coach said this about him:Mark Morris: "He is an old school defenceman in my books; the type of guy that everybody will appreciate over the course of time. He's not going to wow you in the beginning, but I think over time he will...
