  • 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.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Starting in net Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/17) Budaj will guard the crease in Saturday's home contest with the Jets, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Budaj allowed just one goal en route to the victory over the Blues on Thursday, giving him a 3-1-0 record in the month of January. The Czech netminder will look to keep it going against a Jets' lineup that averages 2.73 goals per game, 14th in the NHL.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Cruises to win over Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/17) Budaj allowed one goal on 22 shots in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Blues.

    Budaj's team made life easy for the goaltender, staking him to a 4-0 lead less than 26 minutes in. He has faced 24 or fewer shots four times in his past five appearances, so it's no surprise the Slovakian is 4-1-0 over that span. Things could get a bit tougher with a pair of above-average offenses in the Jets and Lightning set to visit next.
