Playing careerEdit

Prior to turning professional, Peluso played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League with the Erie Otters, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and the Brampton Battalion. He was drafted by the Otters 10th overall in the 2005 OHL draft.[1] In November 2007, Peluso was traded to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in exchange for Sean Jones, a 4th round pick in the 2008 OHL draft and a 3rd round pick in the 2009 OHL draft.[2] He was traded to the Brampton Battalion in January 2009 where he ended his major junior career.[3] On March 12, 2009, the St. Louis Blues signed Peluso to a three-year entry-level contract.[4]

On December 15, 2013, Peluso was suspended three games for boarding Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski.[5] Prior to the shortened 2012–13 lock-out season, Peluso was claimed off waivers from the Blues by the Winnipeg Jets on January 16, 2013. On July 22, 2013, the Jets signed Peluso who was an RFA to a two-year extension worth $1.125-million.[6] Peluso scored his first NHL goal on October 24, 2013 against Carter Hutton of the Nashville Predators.[7] On June 17, 2015, the Jets resigned Peluso to a two-year extension, worth $1.35 million.[8]

After five seasons within the Jets organization, Peluso left as a free agent to sign a one-year, two-way contract with the Washington Capitals on July 1, 2017.[9] He was sent to the their AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, but after playing three games for them was recalled back to the NHL.[10] He made two appearances for the Capitals, before completing the season with the Bears, registering 11 points in 38 games.

On August 21, 2018, Peluso signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames.[11] He was assigned to their AHL affiliate, the Stockton Heat, prior to the 2018–19 season but was recalled to the NHL on October 6.[12]

As a free agent from the Flames, Peluso was unable to garner an NHL contract, opting to sign a one-year AHL contract with the Bakersfield Condors, affiliate to the Edmonton Oilers, on July 17, 2019.[13]

Peluso and his wife Courtney have one son together, born in 2018.[14]
