Calvin Petersen News
Los Angeles Kings goaltender Calvin Petersen was placed on waivers Wednesday. This is a very surprising move from the team, considering that Petersen has only just started the first season of a three-year deal worth $15 million, but his $5 million cap hit makes it very unlikely that somebody claims him. Petersen earned the nice contact with a couple of strong seasons, but he has had a miserable time in 2022-23 and the move comes after the 28-year-old allowed four goals on 16 shots in a relief effort against Seattle Tuesday night. His record at 5-3-2 isn't too bad, but Petersen has a horrible 3.75 goals-against average and a .868 save percentage. It looks like Petersen could now be set for a stint in the AHL, with the Kings hoping that maybe he rediscovers some of his old form.
Los Angeles Kings goaltender Calvin Petersen is considered day-to-day after he exited Monday's preseason game against Vegas with a lower-body injury. Petersen started the game but left after the opening period. He allowed one goal on 11 shots in an eventual 2-1 overtime victory. Pheonix Copley impressed after taking over from Petersen, saving all 30 shots he faced. Kings head coach Todd McLellan suggested after the game that Petersen was pulled only because it was a preseason game, which is great news for fantasy managers, although him being completely healthy would be even better. The 27-year-old had a strong campaign last year with a 20-14-2 record and he should get his fair share of starts again in 2022-23.
Los Angeles Kings goaltender Calvin Petersen didn't allow anything past him Thursday night against San Jose, leading the team to a 3-0 victory with 29 saves. The 27-year-old bagged his third shutout of the season and will continue the campaign with a 17-9-1 record. The Kings look like a playoff team again and Petersen has played a big part in it with a 2.60 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage. Jonathan Quick is having a nice bounce-back year as well and head coach Todd McLellan has confidently rotated his goalies all season. McLellan rarely goes with the same guy between the pipes in two consecutive games, so it seems likely that Quick gets the next one on Saturday against Vegas.
The Los Angeles Kings have put pen to paper on a new three-year, $15 million contract extension with goaltender Cal Petersen on Wednesday. The 26-year-old, who is set to close out his current three-year, $2.575 million deal in 2021-2022, is coming off a strong season in which he posted a 2.89 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage in 35 appearances. With his new extension now in place, it is expected that Petersen will likely take the reigns from Jonathan Quick as the starting netminder in Los Angeles this season. As a result, the Iowa native could provide sneaky value toward the back-end of fantasy drafts this fall.
