Peeke scored a goal on his lone shot in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils.
Peeke crept in from the point and buried a rebound from the left faceoff circle for his first NHL tally. It was just his second point in 12 games this season, but he's a solid plus-5 so far. The 21-year-old appears to be solidifying a regular spot in the lineup while the Blue Jackets deal with injuries to their blueline.
The Blue Jackets recalled Peeke from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.
Peeke was sent to the minors for one day to suit up for Cleveland against Rochester on Wednesday, but he'll resume his role as Columbus' seventh defenseman for the team's pair of weekend contests. He's notched one helper in seven games with the big club this campaign.
Columbus reassigned Peeke to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.
Peeke's demotion suggests Ryan Murray (upper body) is likely closing in on a return to action. The 21-year-old Peeke will continue to be one of the first skaters the Blue Jackets turn to when dealing with injuries on the back end, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.
The Blue Jackets recalled Peeke from AHL Cleveland on Saturday.
The Blue Jackets have a two-game swing in Buffalo and Montreal on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Peeke will add depth to the team's blue line, but it's unclear if he'll draw into either matchup. The 21-year-old blueliner has one point over seven NHL games this year.
Peeke (finger) was taken off injured reserve and reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.
Peeke spent the last 13 contests on injured reserve due to his finger injury. The Florida native figures to be atop the list of potential call-ups the rest of the way but could spend a chunk of time in the minors working his way back to full fitness. The Monsters are in action versus AHL Binghamton on Wednesday, which leaves open the door for Peeke to be recalled prior to Thursday's matchup with Carolina.
Peeke (finger) has joined the Blue Jackets for the final two games of their road trip, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
Peeke has been sidelined since mid-December with a broken finger, so he likely won't play in either of Columbus' next two games, but it's nonetheless an encouraging sign that he's resumed practicing. The 21-year-old blueliner is on injured reserve, so he'll need to be activated before rejoining the lineup.
Peeke suffered a broken finger that will sideline him 4-6 weeks and was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
If Peeke returns on the short end of his timeline, he would be out of action until mid-January and would miss at least 13 games. In seven appearances since being called up from AHL Cleveland, the Florida native averaged a mere 12:27 of ice time and had just one assist, three shots and 12 hits to show for it. In his stead, Gabriel Carlsson was recalled from the minors to bolster the club's blue line depth.
Peeke (hand) is suspected to have broken his hand and will likely be out long-term, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
It's a tough blow for the 21-year-old, who was playing in just his seventh career NHL game Tuesday. The Blue Jackets' injuries are piling up -- Peeke himself was called up while Zach Werenski was out. Scott Harrington is the most likely candidate to enter the lineup for Peeke, but expect the Blue Jackets to recall another blueliner from AHL Cleveland in the near future.
Peeke (upper body) is out for the remainder of Tuesday's game against Detriot.
It's been a tough couple games for Peeke, who took a shot to the mouth Monday and then a shot to the hand that forced him out of Tuesday's game. Expect the team to comment on more specifics regarding the injury ahead of Thursday's game against Los Angeles.
Peeke was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Monday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Peeke was called up with Zach Werenski (shoulder) out for several weeks. The 21-year-old blueliner has five goals and 12 points in 21 games with AHL Cleveland. He'll likely be an insurance body for the time being.
Peeke was assigned to AHL Cleveland on Tuesday.
A second-round pick in the 2016 draft, Peeke had a strong training camp but was simply squeezed out of the picture due to the Jackets' depth on the blue line. The 21-year-old could make his NHL debut as soon as an injury opens up a spot for him in Columbus.
Peeke agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with Columbus on Monday.
Drafted by the Blue Jackets 34th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft, Peeke is coming off his junior season at Notre Dame, in which he notched 24 points in 40 games as the team's captain. The 21-year-old will link up with Columbus and could make his NHL debut as early as Tuesday's matchup with Boston, though the team could opt to just have him practice for now, rather than push him into the lineup this close to the playoffs.
