Hurricanes place Khudobin on IR, recall Peters

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.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
