Everything MAHA and Michigan High School Hockey

Petey’s Picks provides exclusive coverage of all things youth hockey in the state of Michigan. From Michigan Amateur Hockey (MAHA) AAA teams to Michigan high school hockey, Petey’s Picks shares daily blogs, podcasts, team rankings, player rankings, analysis and more. 

My sole motivation with Petey's Picks is to promote the game, teams and players with the same attention, detail and passion as the pros.

I'm Craig Peterson and I've been in and around the game of hockey in some capacity for nearly 30 years. I'm a product of Michigan youth hockey, having been here for the entirety of my playing career. I've also spent 10 seasons behind the bench, helping shape the next generation of hockey players. On top of all that, I've worked in digital media for the last decade, covering everything from the Detroit Red Wings and B1G Hockey down to youth hockey at the youngest age groups.

Hockey is in my DNA. Like many of you, this sport has become my life. I truly hope that Petey's Picks can be informative and entertaining while creating awareness and exposure of the best hockey Michigan has to offer.
