Analysis:Theo Peckham saw last season end early due to a concussion, but he's expected to be ready to go for the 2012 season. With just 16 points compared to 278 PIMs in his last 125 games, though, he's unlikely to contribute much other than penalty minutes.

News:Theo Peckham had a productive night Saturday without registering a single point or even taking a shot on goal. In the Oilers' 9-2 wipeout of the Blackhawks, he managed to be on the ice at all the right times, finishing the night plus-5. He was also whistled for four penalties, collecting 17 PIMs in the third frame alone.

Analysis: Peckham injured the wrist in the game against the Rangers on Sunday. He is not expected to miss any game time, but with himself and Ladislav Smid licking their wounds the Oilers did call up reinforcements from the AHL.

Analysis: The 22-year-old probably won't provide much scoring on the third pairing -- plus that's not really his game anyway -- but he's a tough blueliner who will add some penalty minutes if he's getting regular time. He's off to a nice start with a point and five PIMs.
News: Peckham should have a legitimate chance to make the team out of training camp, according to the Edmonton Sun.
Analysis: The Oilers only have three spots on the blue line locked up (Ryan Whitney, Ladislav Smid, and Tom Gilbert), that leaves three other spots up for grabs, and Peckham could grab one of those spots with a strong camp.
News: The Edmonton Journal reports that Oilers D Theo Peckham has suffered a separated shoulder in the AHL. He's already suffered concussion and knee injuries this season. "It's a setback. We'll find out how serious it is after it settles down, but it is a separation," said Edmonton head coach Pat Quinn. "We were real positive about young Theo because of what he's shown us the last little bit. It means someone else will get a chance. We're just getting pretty thin."
Analysis: Peckham might have been summoned once the AHL season was over, but now he'll spend the rest of the season out injured. He isn't much of a prospect and can continue to be ignored in most long-term Fantasy leagues.
News: The Oilers have recalled D Taylor Chorney, D Theo Peckham and G Devan Dubnyk from the AHL.
Analysis: Dubnyk is the only players in this group with any Fantasy value. It's minimal though, as he'll get the odd start here and there in relief of Jeff Deslauriers. Only worry about Dubnyk in the deepest of leagues that use average points per game.

Analysis: Peckham himself is coming back from injury -- he hurt his ankle in the summer, wasn't even able to take part in Oilers training camp and missed the first two games in Springfield. Peckham is merely organizational depth at this point in his career and can be ignored in Fantasy.

Ryan Potulny was sent down to Springfield to clear a roster spot, and joining him will be Jean-Francois Jacques on a two-week conditioning assignment. Jacques has been out all season following back surgery.
Analysis: Jacques, Potulny and Peckham are just organizational depth for the Oilers at this point and could bounce around all season. It's safe to ignore them in Fantasy until they become NHL regulars.
News: The Oilers sent defenseman Theo Peckham down to Springfield of the AHL Saturday. He was recalled Thursday and played against Pittsburgh before his demotion.

Analysis: The 21-year-old Brule had one goal and eight assists in 61 games a year ago while trying to find himself in his second year in the NHL. He has been a disappointment so far in his young NHL career, and can be ignored in most formats. Chorney and Peckham are just organizational depth.
