The Carolina Hurricanes placed goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve Monday with a lower-body injury and recalled goalie Justin Peters from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL) on an emergency basis.

Khudobin was injured after taking an awkward spill in the Hurricanes' 5-3 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday at PNC Arena.

Peters, 27, is 1-0-0 with a 2.00 goals-against average and .941 save percentage with the Checkers. He appeared in 19 games for the Hurricanes last season and went 4-11-1 with a 3.46 GAA.

A second-round selection (No. 38) by the Hurricanes in the 2004 NHL Draft, Peters is 15-22-4 with a 3.32 GAA and two shutouts in 47 career games with Carolina.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
