Pelkey signs with Jackalopes

BJ Pelkey

Sept. 21, 2006

ODESSA, Texas - The Odessa Jackalopes of the Central Hockey League have signed former Lake Superior State forward BJ Pelkey, a 23-year-old from St. Andrews West, Ont.

"Players with solid college backgrounds seem to do very well with the Jacks," Odessa coach Don McKee said. "Lake Superior State is an outstanding program."

Pelkey, in fact, is the second LSSU 2006 graduate to sign with the Jackalopes for the upcoming season. Defenseman Alex Dunn, Pelkey's teammate all four seasons with the Lakers, signed with the club in July.

"BJ is a very good defensive forward," McKee said. "We expect him to fill a utility role, and that's an important element for our hockey club. He's a right shot and (at 6-1, 210) a very physical hockey player -- two areas where we can certainly use some help and depth. Add all that up, and you'll see why we think BJ can contribute to this team as a rookie."
