Manitoba Moose 2nd year defenseman Peter Stoykewych(42) scored his first AHL goal in 62 games.

The 6’3″ 200 lbs. blue liner is off to a good start in his sophomore campaign with 2 points in 9 contests and a +4 rating.

Originally an Atlanta Thrashers‘ 7th round pick in the 2010 draft (#199 overall) he was pushed in the direction of signing minor league contracts to develop instead of inking with parent club Winnipeg Jets.

Never exactly a big point getter in four years at Colorado College or one year in the USHL with Des Moines Buccaneers, he definitely shows moments where he could have a bit of a scoring breakout but is considered more of a tough to play against, stay-at-home d-man.

It will be interesting to see if he gets picked up with a bit of a surge on the stat sheet and effective zone play as he does possess some good size.
