Peckham starts out each fight on the losing end. Sometimes he turns it around.

Technically he's a poor fighter at this point. Kid can learn I imagine but I'd like to see him study the tapes a lot more. He's losing fights the same way repeatedly. In the intial clinch. He has to watch for that a whole lot better. He's trying to win fights with pure brawn. These guys he's facing are strong enough that you don't tip the table that easily.

He's using poor tactics that got him by in JR and sometimes the AHL but that aren't good enough here.
I do agree with you on this. Peckham fights the way he plays D with little technical ability and a lot of force but hopefully he'll learn as he gains experience because he's becoming a valuable member for us and i would hate to see him become one of the walking wounded.
