Caps Sign Goalie Peters To Two-Year Deal

News: The Capitals signed Justin Peters to a two-year, $1.9 million deal Tuesday, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The Caps were vocal about their desire to find a capable veteran backup for Braden Holtby, and Justin Peters certainly fits the bill. Peters filled in admirably for Carolina last season when injuries struck Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward, amassing a 2.50 GAA and .919 save percentage in 21 games. With the Capitals firmly committed to Holtby, Peters doesn't possess a great deal of fantasy value unless Holtby falters. It wouldn't be a completely unforeseen development, considering the extent to which Holtby struggled for most of last season.

Canes Recall Peters From Conditioning Assignment

News: Justin Peters was recalled from his conditioning assignment at AHL Charlotte on Wednesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes decided to bring up Justin Peters before Wednesday's trade deadline in order to avoid using one of their four post-deadline recalls on him. With Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward both signed to multi-year contracts, the Hurricanes could attempt to trade Peters for help on defense or at forward. If Peters remains in Carolina, he'll struggle to see action.

Hurricanes' Peters AHL Bound For Conditioning

News: Justin Peters was assigned to AHL Charlotte for conditioning work.
Analysis: The Hurricanes are likely just looking to get Justin Peters some work in after he's made only one start over the last month and a half. Overall, Peters has been productive for Carolina when given the opportunity to play regularly, but with Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward ahead of him on the depth chart, he'll have a difficult time finding starts moving forward.

Hurricanes' Peters' Return Cut Short

News: Justin Peters, playing his first game since December 27, gave up three goals on seven shots against the Lightning on Sunday. He was pulled after 15:07.
Analysis: Not the kind of return Justin Peters wanted, presumably, and the goaltending situation in Carolina is crowded. Peters was playing well before his injury, but it remains to be seen if he can regain that footing.

Canes' Peters Starting Sunday

News: Justin Peters will start in goal Sunday against the Lightning, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters will step in for his first start since Dec. 27 in the second half of a back-to-back set for Carolina. He will oppose Tampa's Ben Bishop, who's making his second start in as many days. In nine home starts to this point, Peters has gone 4-3-2 with a 2.18 GAA.

Hurricanes' Peters Handed Third Straight Loss

News: Justin Peters gave up four goals on 26 shots to take his third straight loss Friday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Justin Peters did well to get the Hurricanes a point after he looked to be headed for a regulation loss before teammate Drayson Bowman bailed him out with the game-tying score late in third period. Alas, Peters was no match for a beautiful give-and-go between the Penguins' Jussi Jokinen and James Neal in overtime, ultimately tacking him with the loss. Peters has shown some warts of late with 11 goals allowed in those three consecutive losses, but Cam Ward's continued struggles should keep the Hurricanes' goaltending situation rather fluid.

Hurricanes Will Stick With Peters On Friday

News: Justin Peters will be in goal Friday vs. the Penguins, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Despite delivering a poor showing Monday against the Blue Jackets in which he let in four goals on 25 shots, Justin Peters will be back in the net for the third straight game. At this point, it's clear that coach Kirk Muller doesn't quite trust Cam Ward to find his form on a consistent basis, opening the door for Peters to make a greater share of the turns in goal. Monday's outing aside, Peters has been superb this season, owning a 2.30 GAA and .926 save percentage in 19 appearances.

Hurricanes' Peters Lets In Four In Loss

News: Justin Peters gave up four goals on 25 shots in a loss to the Blue Jackets on Monday.
Analysis: This is a poor start for Justin Peters, but he's having a good season. He still has a .926 save percentage.

Canes Expected To Go With Peters On Monday

News: Justin Peters is expected to get the start Monday against the Blue Jackets, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: With Cam Ward and the injured Anton Khudobin remaining out on the ice after the main group left practice, Justin Peters looks set to make his second consecutive start for the Hurricanes. Peters is coming off of a draining overtime loss to the Lightning on Saturday in which he stopped 47 of 50 shot attempts.

Canes' Peters Brilliant In OT Loss

News: Justin Peters put in a stellar, 47-save performance Saturday against the Lightning, but ended up on the losing side of the ledger in a 3-2 overtime defeat. '"Sometimes the goaltender is the best player on the ice, and he was tonight," Lightning coach Jon Copper said about Peters. "Fortunately for us, we got that extra one by him."
Analysis: The game-winner came on a three-on-one rush. He stole a point for the Canes and was head-and-shoulders the best Cane on the ice. He continues to outplay Cam Ward, but the team isn't ready to hand him the keys to the car just yet. Too bad -- he'd really help both the Canes and his fantasy owners with starter's minutes.

Canes To Start Peters On Saturday

News: Justin Peters will be in the crease Saturday vs. the Lightning, Mike Maniscalco of 99.9 The Fan reports.
Analysis: After another dud by Cam Ward a night earlier, Justin Peters will get the turn in the net for the third time in four games. As the more highly compensated of the two goalies, Ward will be given every chance to hold off Peters, but it's becoming increasingly difficult with the backup netminder posting dramatically better ratios in the net.

Cane's Peters: 37 Saves In Win

News: Justin Peters bricked up the Carolina net and made 37 saves in a 3-1 win over Phoenix on Saturday night.
Analysis: He's 3-1-1 in his last five starts and is currently outplaying Cam Ward. The Canes will ride his success, but it's still Ward's job.

Hurricanes Roll With Peters On Saturday

News: Justin Peters will be in the net Saturday vs. the Coyotes.
Analysis: Although Justin Peters took a shootout loss in his most recent turn Thursday vs. the Flames, he'll get the nod again while presumptive No. 1 starter Cam Ward continues to languish. Peters has been generally excellent with a 2.23 GAA and .925 save percentage but might not be the safest play Saturday on the road against the powerful Coyotes' attack.

Hurricanes' Peters Loses On Late OT Goal

News: Justin Peters made 28 saves and almost got the Hurricanes to a shootout Thursday, but gave up a goal with four seconds left in overtime to take a 2-1 loss to Calgary.
Analysis: Justin Peters has been quite steady in goal for the 'Canes, and Cam Ward has not. That considered, don't be surprised to see Peters draw his seventh consecutive road start Saturday in Phoenix.

Hurricanes Go With Peters On Thursday

News: Justin Peters led the Hurricanes on the ice for pregame warmups and it appears he'll be the starter Thursday against the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Coach Kirk Muller was mum on his goalie up until warmups, but it's Justin Peters who will get the nod for the fourth time in the last six games. Cam Ward was expected to fully reclaim the No. 1 goalie gig after he returned from IR on Nov. 18, but Peters has nixed those plans by outplaying Ward since that time. The timeshare will continue until further notice, with Peters probably the preferable goalie to own at the moment while he remains locked in.

Hurricanes' Peters Loses Despite Strong Game

News: Justin Peters made 24 saves on 25 shots, but took the loss Monday versus the Canucks.
Analysis: Justin Peters got a tough break here, as Eddie Lack blanked his team. His overall numbers have been good this season, but remains the backup as long as Cam Ward is healthy. Further, Peters will also have to contend with the potential return of Anton Khudobin to the mix.

Canes' Peters Dumps Preds

News: Justin Peters allowed two goals on 22 shots in Thursday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: With every quality win Justin Peters picks up -- and he's 6-2-1 over his last nine games -- it becomes harder and harder to give the Hurricanes' goaltending duties to Cam Ward.

Canes' Peters To Start Thursday

News: Justin Peters will start in goal Thursday against the Predators, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward will sit for a second straight game, after giving up eight goals in his last two starts. Justin Peters gets a chance to right his road woes (3.23 GAA) against a Nashville team that has lost three straight at home.

Canes' Peters Shuts Down Capitals

News: Justin Peters stopped 26 of 27 shots in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Anton Khudobin is traveling with the 'Canes on their current road trip, so Justin Peters needed this impressive outing to maintain his grip on Carolina's backup job once Khudobin's healthy enough to return.

Canes Turn To Peters Tuesday

News: Justin Peters will start in goal for Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters has been in a slump in his last two starts in net, taking two losses and allowing seven goals over that stretch. He has a 4-7-1 record this season with a 2.49 GAA.

Canes' Peters Stops 43 In Loss

News: Justin Peters was peppered with 47 shots Thursday by the Red Wings, and though he stopped 43 of them for a .915 save rate, it wasn't enough to avoid the loss.
Analysis: A tough one for Justin Peters, loser of two in a row, but he continues to look strong in goal nonetheless -- albeit for a poor Carolina team. With Cam Ward back, Peters is going to have to earn his time in goal, and despite the loss, the 'Canes have to look at this game as a positive one for Peters.

Canes' Peters To Start Thursday

News: Justin Peters will start in goal Thursday against the Red Wings, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Since starting the season 0-5-0, Justin Peters has come out on top in four of his last six outings. He'll get the nod Thursday on the road, where he's struggled to this point, posting a 3.59 GAA.

Canes' Peters Expected To Start Thursday

News: Justin Peters is expected to start in goal Thursday against the Red Wings, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters was given a day to rest up Monday, following 11 consecutive starts, but he'll step back in between the pipes Thursday. The 27-year-old has gone 4-1-1 since starting the year 0-5-0.

Canes' Peters Not In Goal Monday

News: Justin Peters is not expected to start in net for Monday's game against the Bruins, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters had a streak of five straight decisions without a regulation loss snapped in his last start against the Blues on Saturday. He has a 4-6-1 record on the season with a 2.35 GAA and a .921 save percentage. Cam Ward will take the start in net Monday for the Hurricanes.

Canes' Peters: Allows Three In Loss

News: Justin Peters made 28 saves in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Blues. He allowed three goals. It's the first time he has allowed three goal since a 5-1 loss to the Rangers on Nov. 2.
Analysis: He has performed admirably in Cam Ward's absence. But with the latter's impending return, Justin Peters will soon find himself back on the pine.
