Peters, 17, has spent the 2020-21 season with the Moose Jaw Warriors U-18 AAA in the Saskatchewan Male AAA Hockey League, posting five assists and four penalty minutes in six games.

“We are excited to sign Ethan to a WHL SPA and welcome him to the Oil Kings Program,” said Oil Kings President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Kirt Hill. “He brings a well-rounded game, which includes a high hockey IQ, good puck skills and a high compete level. We’re confident he will continue to work on developing his game and he’ll be an exceptional player and person for our program. We look forward to seeing Ethan when hockey resumes.”

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound blueliner has appeared in 47 career SMAAAHL games over two seasons with Moose Jaw, accumulating 32 points (6G, 26A) and 30 penalty minutes. Peters has also served as an assistant captain in both seasons with the Warriors.
