    Kings' Peter Budaj: Recalled by Kings

    Budaj was recalled by the Kings on emergency conditions Thursday. Budaj's recall comes on the back of news that Jonathan Quick is day-to-day with a lower-body issue. A former top netminder with the Avalanche, the 33-year-old has certainly earned his chance with the Kings, posting a spectacular 1.58 GAA and .935 save percentage (including eight shutouts) with the team's AHL Ontario affiliate. However, his stay with the parent club may be short, and his main role would likely be serving as the backup netminder to Jhonas Enroth until Quick returns.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Placed on waivers

    Budaj was placed on waivers Friday, James MIrtle of The Globe and Mail reports. Budaj will be eligible to be claimed by another franchise, but he passes through waivers unclaimed, he'll either rejoin the NHL roster or be assigned to the AHL.

  • Kings Ink Budaj To Tryout Offer

    News: Peter Budaj has signed with the Kings on a professional tryout contract, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
    Analysis: Peter Budaj struggled while seeing limited ice time with AHL St. John's in the Winnipeg organization last season, going 0-9-6 with a 3.55 GAA and .888 save percentage. The 33-year-old clearly seems to be on the downswing of his career, but as a veteran with 296 NHL appearances on his ledger, he could provide insurance in goal for the Kings at the minor-league level.
  • Jets Waive Budaj

    News: The Jets placed Peter Budaj on waivers Monday, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports.
    Analysis: Peter Budaj was just acquired from the Canadiens on Sunday, and was expected to earn a roster spot for opening day. He'll head to AHL St. John's if he clears waivers, and it appears as though the Jets will start with Andrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson as their goaltending tandem.
  • Habs Trade Budaj To Winnipeg

    News: Peter Budaj was traded to the Jets on Sunday along with Patrick Holland in exchage for Eric Tangradi, Dave Stubbs of The Gazette reports.
    Analysis: Peter Budaj was competing to back up Carey Price this season, but it appears that job will fall to Dustin Tokarski instead. The 32-year-old will now head to the Jets, where he is expected to back up Ondrej Pavelec.
  • Habs' Budaj Takes Loss

    News: Peter Budaj allowed four goals on 26 shots in Friday night's 4-3 preseason loss to the Senators in overtime.
    Analysis: Three of the Sens' four goals came on the power play and the even-strength one was a bad one. As the preseason comes to close, Peter Budaj is still battling to hold on to the backup job he's held the previous three seasons. Dustin Tokarski remains in the mix to be Carey Price's backup.
  • Habs' Budaj To Get Preseason Nod Friday

    News: Coach Michel Therrien said Peter Budaj will start Friday's preseason game against the Senators.
    Analysis: The Habs will presumably save Carey Price for the exhibition finale the next day against Ottawa, in what amounts to a dress rehearsal for the start of the regular season. The Canadiens still haven't determined whether or not Peter Budaj or Dustin Tokarski will serve as the No. 2 netminder this season, but the performance of both players Friday night will surely impact Therrien's decision. Regardless of which goalie emerges as the victor of the job battle, Price will likely see one of the heaviest workloads in the league, limiting the chances of the backup to make a notable fantasy impact.
  • Habs' Budaj Won't Start Monday

    News: Peter Budaj will not start Monday's Game 2 against the Rangers, James Mirtle of TSN reports.
    Analysis: The Canadiens will turn to Dustin Tokarski with Carey Price on the shelf for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals, so Peter Budaj will play the role of backup once again. Tokarski will probably have a pretty short leash, though, so there's a good chance Budaj could get the start in Game 3 if Tokarski doesn't impress Monday.
