Justin Peters (born August 30, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL)[1].

Playing careerEdit

After playing Junior A hockey with the Vaughan Vipers of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL), Peters began a four-season Ontario Hockey League (OHL) career with the Toronto St. Michael's Majors and Plymouth Whalers. He was drafted in the second round, 38th overall, by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, then started his professional career in 2006–07 with the Hurricanes' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Albany River Rats. He was demoted to the ECHL for parts of the 2007–08 season, but returned to the River Rats in 2008–09.

On February 5 2010, the Carolina Hurricanes recalled Justin Peters from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League after Cam Ward suffered an upper body injury[2]. He made his NHL debut for the Carolina Hurricanes on February 6, 2010 starting against the New York Islanders. He had 34 saves in a 3-1 victory.
