From Beavers to Kangaroos

Smooth, slick defenseman Cole Peck is taking his game from the Blind River Beavers of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League to the SUNY Canton Kangaroos effective the 2017-2018 season.

SUNY Canton is a New York-based, Division 3 National Collegiate Athletic Association school.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Peck was an impact player for Blind River during his only season in the NOJHL.

An Ottawa native, Peck potted 4 goals, 27 assists, 31 points in 49-regular-season games before piling up 5 goals, 12 assists, 17 points in 16 playoff outings as Blind River made it all the way to the finals in the 12-team NOJHL.

Kyle Brick, who will return to Blind River for a second season as Beavers head coach in 2017-2018, said the 20-year old Peck leaves the NOJHL with an impeccable reputation.

“Cole was not only one of the best defencemen in the league but one of its best players,” Brick told “He was a rock back there for us. It’s hard to see our team having the success it did without Cole, this kid has a bright future in the game of hockey.”
