Pelech on shelf with wrist injury

Aaron Vickers2013 Draft Center2 Comments

It could very well be the most important year in the hockey life of Adam Pelech.

And it’s been put on hiatus.

The six-foot-two, 200-pound Erie Otters defenseman has suffered what is believed to be a hairline fracture in his wrist, forcing the Toronto, ON. native to miss up to six weeks of action.

The injury is a crippling blow to an Otters defense that boasts four rookies. Pelech, who had 14 points in 65 games as a rookie last season, was counted on for upwards of 25 minutes of ice time a night.

The injury was suffered in Erie’s 6-2 loss to the Plymouth Whalers.
