  • Kings' Peter Budaj: Falls to Sharks on Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/17) Budaj was beaten three times on 27 shots in a 3-2 loss to the visiting Sharks on Wednesday.

    It's only the second time since way back on Nov. 13 that Budaj has suffered back-to-back regulation losses, speaking to just how impeccable of a run the career backup has had this season. Even with the pair of losses, he owns a .917 save percentage, 2.12 GAA and sits eighth in the NHL in wins with 20, and figures to continue to receive the lions share of starts until Jonathan Quick (groin) returns.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Starting Wednesday against San Jose

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/17) Budaj was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll start between the pipes in Wednesday night's game against the Sharks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Budaj has been sharp of late, posting a 2-1-0 record with an impressive 1.67 GAA and .937 save percentage over his last three appearances. The 34-year-old netminder will look to pick up his 21st win of the campaign in a matchup with a Sharks team that's averaging 2.61 goals per game this season, 19th in the NHL.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Saves 27 shots in loss to Bolts

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Budaj saved 27 of 29 shots during Monday's loss to Tampa Bay.

    It was a tough-luck loss for Budaj, but it was also just his second defeat over his past seven starts. He entered Monday's game with 20 wins, a .917 save percentage and 2.09 GAA, which are No. 1 goalie results in the majority of seasonal leagues. With a hefty workload behind a defensively aware team, Budaj is in position to continue providing excellent numbers, too.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Defending cage Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Budaj will get the starting nod against the Lightning on Monday, Dennis Bernstein of the Professional Hockey Writers Association reports.

    Budaj has captured wins in five of his previous six outings with a .902 save percentage. Given the offensive struggles of the Kings -- 2.53 goals per game -- the netminder has had to be stellar in order to keep racking up the wins. Considering Budaj wasn't even expected to begin the season as the backup, fantasy owners will be thrilled with his value after beating out Jeff Zatkoff for the No. 1 job, albeit a role he will likely lose once Jonathan Quick (groin) returns.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Secures 20th victory of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Budaj stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced in Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory against the Jets.

    Budaj secured his 20th win of the season, as he continues to show no signs of slowing down. He last posted 20 wins back in 2008-09 as a member of the Avalanche, and he is on pace to smash his previous career high of 31 wins set in 2006-07. He can be trusted as a No. 2 goaltender in all fantasy pools until further notice.
