Theo Peckham has signed a deal to play with the San Francisco Bulls of the ECHL.
The Edmonton blueliner will be in a battle for a spot on the Oiler defense once the NHL season starts as Ryan Whitney, Jeff Petry, Corey Potter, Nick Schultz, Ladislav Smid and rookie Justin Schultz look to have spots guaranteed and there are others like Colten Teubert are knocking on the door. Peckham is in the best shape of his career as he took great care in the off-season. Peckham is worth selecting if he makes the Oilers in pools that use penalty minutes as a category. He played only 54 games in 2011-12 as he missed time with a concussion in addition to being a healthy scratch.
