Winchester, 32, spent all of last season in the AHL, totaling 27 points in 37 games with the Milwaukee Admirals. He last played in the NHL in 2011-12, when he had 10 points in 67 games with the San Jose Sharks.
Peckham, 25, had a minus-1 rating in four games with the Edmonton Oilers last season. He also spent time with the San Francisco Bulls of the ECHL and the Oklahoma City Barons, the Oilers' AHL team.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
