Theo "Teddy" Peckham (born November 10, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing in Rødovre Mighty Bulls. He is the half-brother of Angela James - one of the first female hockey players to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Both Peckham and James shared the same father, Leo James, a black American from Mississippi who came to Canada to escape racial segregation.
Peckham was drafted 75th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.
He made his NHL debut for the Oilers on March 7, 2008 against the Columbus Blue Jackets in what would be his only appearance of that NHL season.
His first NHL goal was scored the following season on November 11, 2010 against the Detroit Red Wings.
On July 4, 2011, Peckham was re-signed by the Oilers to a one-year contract.
On July 16, 2012, the Oilers re-signed Peckham to a one-year contract. During the NHL lockout, on November 5, 2012, Peckham signed with the San Francisco Bulls of the ECHL to keep in game shape.  He played in four games for 11 penalty minutes before leaving the team, never reaching NHL physical form.
On October 11, 2014, Peckham signed a one-year contract with the new ECHL entrant, the Wichita Thunder. With the retirement of Andrew Martens, Peckham was selected as team captain to open the 2014–15 season.
