The Manitoba Moose, the AHL affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks, announced today they have received right wing Cory Pecker on re-assignment from the NHL’s Mighty Ducks of Anaheim via the AHL’s Cincinnati Mighty Ducks.

Pecker, 23, has played in 49 games this season with Cincinnati, where he has collected four goals and 12 points, as well as 51 penalty minutes. The Montreal native has also played in three games with the San Diego Gulls of the ECHL where he has one goal.

So far in his three-year pro career, Pecker has played in 194 games in the AHL with Cincinnati and Binghamton, recording 33 goals and 69 points. His best year came when he was a rookie back in 2002-03 with the Mighty Ducks. That year he scored 20 goals and 33 points.

Pecker played five seasons in the OHL with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and the Erie Otters. During his 279-game tenure in the OHL, Pecker accumulated 155 goals and 313 points and was an OHL First-Team All-Star in 2002 with the Otters, as well as a member of the Memorial Cup All-Star Team that year.

Pecker was originally drafted by the Calgary Flames in the sixth round, 166th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
