WARRIORS DEAL GREGOR TO VICTORIA

Moose Jaw Warriors General Manager Alan Millar has announced the acquisition of 18-year-old forward Ryan Peckford and a 4th round pick in 2018 from the Victoria Royals in exchange for 19-year-old forward Noah Gregor and an 8th round pick in 2018.

Peckford, 6’1”, 197lbs, is from Stony Plain, Alberta and has 13 goals, 14 assists, and 27 points in 33 games this season for the Royals.  In 2016-2017 Peckford had 13 goals, 21 assists, and 34 points in 45 games. 

Peckford was drafted by the Royals in the 2nd round (31st overall) at the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.  In 140 WHL games he has 34 goals, 38 assists, ad 72 points.

“Noah is an excellent young man and we thank him for his time with the Warriors and wish him the best,” commented General Manager Alan Millar.  “We are very excited to add Ryan Peckford to our hockey club.  Ryan brings skill, size, and compete to our forward group.”

Paddock is pulling a Marc Bergevin from Montreal Canadiens. Just keep waiting until there is nothing to give or receive. Soon it will be too late if it already isn't.

This is why I hate the Mem Cup format. A good week by the "host" team and they win with the record showing that. 2 games a day and more teams would determine a more applicable champ.

How many good WHL teams won't get a chance to compete for the Canadian champship, but the Pats do because they have deep pockets and an arena that is big enough.

This appears to be a lateral move more than anything else. MJ got shoved around last season by Swift and they they think they can up-size to avoid this. Maybe and maybe not. Gregor scored a lot of key goals for them. Peckford is a year younger so why does Victoria give up a good younger player? Every team has a bad skid during the season or playoffs. Portland has just lost five in a row, and even the Pats haven't done that. You can never get too smug since it can disappear in a heartbeat. One key injury like the Pats had last year. One cheap shot hit like the one on Brooks and things can change in a hurry. Pats fans were gushing about all the goals the team scored and all the talent they had. In the end a lesser team but healthy and motivated team won it all. A few Pats players haven't hit stride yet but are showing signs of getting healthy and coming out of it. Steel, Henry, Lescyshyn, Bradley, Oksanen, Fleury, Davidson and Mahura are a very formidable bunch once they start clicking and with championship series experience. Then Paddock upgrades some positions and ads about five players like everyone else has, watch out for a runaway blue train coming at you. The Pats found out first place gives you a pennant but not a championship. Much is to be done and decided yet.

This might have something to do with Gregor being called out by Hunter in the media following game 4 last year and purportedly being forced to unload the team bus that night. You don't trade a player of his caliber off a contender unless he doesn't want to be on the team.

I think Moose Jaw might regret that trade much like the woods trade last year for the pats

Looks like the Warriors are tweaking an already good team. Good luck to them.

This is a non news story. Move to Moose Jaw if you want this crap.

Patsie fans are getting anxious and crabby with an underperforming/inferior team that is going to get embarrassed in the mem cup lol, love it. You'll be out in the 1st round again just like 2001.
