Red Wings’ Peer commits to University of Dubuque in Iowa

The Fredericton Red Wings have announced that forward Carson Peer has committed to the University of Dubuque in Iowa, an NCAA Division III school, for 2024-25.

“Anytime you bring a player into your team, and you have not watched or know the player, you never are quite sure,” says Fredericton Head Coach Kyle McAllister. “In the case of Carson, I cannot say enough about this player, who is both on and off the ice a tremendous player and person. We will really miss his everyday work ethic and positive attitude around the team, we wish him well as he continues on with his hockey and academic career.”

The 20-year-old from Oil City, Ontario spent two seasons in Fredericton after spending time with the Sarnia Legionnaires of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL). Peer finished eighth in team scoring in 2022-23 with eleven goals and twelve assists in 51 games. He was one of six Red Wings to hit double-digits in goals.

In 2023-24, Peer played every regular season game for Fredericton with four goals and seven assists. During the Metalfab MHL Cup Playoffs, Peer had one assist in four games.

“On behalf of the organization, I would like to thank Carson for his commitment to our team, both on and off the ice over the past 2 seasons,” says Fredericton President/Governor Roger Shannon. “Our goal is to always leave the jersey better than you found it, and in Carson’s case, there is no question in anyone’s mind he did that. We wish Carson well, and thank him again for his positive influence he had while in Fredericton.”

The MHL congratulates Peer on his post-secondary commitment.
