Petersen won his final four starts prior to the suspension of play. Here's more good news for Peterson dynasty owners: he's on a one-way contract for the next two seasons. With Jack Campbell now in Toronto, there's nothing standing in Petersen's way as the No. 2 goaltender in Los Angeles for the rest of Jonathan Quick's career. The Kings see him as their netminder of the future, so he's a must-own in dynasty formats and likely a good late-rounder for next year in redraft formats.
Petersen is in line to take the cage when the Kings host the Senators on Wednesday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports. Petersen has earned himself a timeshare for a Kings club riding high at the moment with six straight wins. Unfortunately, Los Angeles likely has too big of a hole to climb out of to make the postseason, but Petersen and Quick have moved into fantasy consideration. Wednesday's matchup is particularly appealing for Petersen, who will take on a Sens team notching just 2.27 goals per game on the road.
Petersen made 25 saves in a 7-3 win over the Wild on Saturday. Petersen has won three consecutive games and allowed just five goals in that span. It's unlikely that he'll be anything more than a backup next season given that Jonathan Quick is signed for three more seasons after this one. Petersen remains a fantasy spot starter right now.
Petersen will guard the home goal during Saturday's matchup with Minnesota, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports. Petersen has been razor sharp recently, picking up back-to-back wins over the Penguins and Golden Knights while posting an exceptional 1.00 GAA and .975 save percentage. He'll attempt to secure his fourth victory of the season in a tough home matchup with a hot Wild team that's gone 5-1-0 in its last six games.
Petersen saved 42 of 43 shots in a 4-1 win over the Golden Knights on Sunday. Petersen allowed just one goal for the second game in a row, this time taking down the Pacific Division leaders. The 25-year-old goalie improved to 3-3-0 with a 2.68 GAA and a .926 save percentage in six starts. If Petersen can continue to produce positive results behind a bad team, he could play his way into fantasy relevance in deeper formats.
