Former WHLer Ryan Peckford joining team
A local kid is coming home to play for the Spruce Grove Saints.
19-year-old Ryan Peckford from Stony Plain is joining the team after a stint in the WHL.
He broke in with the Victoria Royals as a 16-year-old, and put up 72 points in 140 games, over a two and a half year stretch with the team.
Peckford was dealt to the Moose Jaw Warriors partway through last year, and also started this season there.
This year, he put up 8 goals and 16 points in 20 games with the Warriors.
Peckford was a member of the PAC Saints up until the end of bantam, before playing a season of Midget AAA with the St. Albert Raiders.
He's expected to wear #10, and suit up for the Saints on Friday night.
