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.

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. Peckham led the Thunder in 26 games for 8 points before opting for a release of his contract in oder to pursue a career abroad. On December 31, 2014, Peckham agreed to a contract with HC ’05 Banská Bystrica of the Slovak Extraliga.
