Peyton Krebs (born January 26, 2001) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing as a prospect to the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted 17th overall by the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
The Kootenay Ice named Krebs the team's 23rd captain. During the 2017–18 season, he finished first in the WHL in points among rookies with 54. He was fourth on the team in scoring as a 16-year-old.
Managing his rehabilitation into the 2019–20 season, Krebs remained with and practiced with the Golden Knights before signing a three-year, entry-level contract with Vegas on November 16, 2019. Upon receiving clearance to return, Krebs was then immediately returned to the WHL, joining his newly relocated junior club the Winnipeg Ice.
Krebs played for Team Canada, achieving 5 points in 5 games at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup, winning Gold. Krebs captained Team Canada at the 2019 IIHF World U18 Championships and led the team with 6 goals and 10 points, the highest-scoring non-American at the tournament. He earned a silver medal with Team Canada at the U-17’s in 2017.
