Hurricanes Recall Goaltender Justin Peters

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled goaltender Justin Peters from Albany of the American Hockey League (AHL). Hurricanes netminder Cam Ward suffered a groin injury during Sunday’s game against Anaheim. To clear room for Peters on Carolina’s roster, the team placed defenseman Tim Gleason, who has missed the last four games with a leg injury, on injured reserve.

This marks the first NHL recall for Peters. The Hurricanes’ second-round selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Peters, 22, is 3-7-2 this season for Albany, with a 2.79 goals-against average, a .911 save percentage and one shutout. The Blyth, Ont. native has played in 59 career AHL contests, earning a record of 20-28-2 with a 3.03 goals-against average (161 goals against, 3,185 min.). Prior to turning professional, Peters spent four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), going 88-70-12 with a 2.88 goals-against average and eight shutouts for St. Michael’s and Plymouth.

The Hurricanes continue a four-game home stand on Thursday night at the RBC Center when they host Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., FS Carolinas HD, Hurricanes Radio Network).
