  • Kings' Peter Budaj: Hangs it up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/19) Budaj will call it a career following the end of AHL Ontario's 2018-19 campaign.

    Budaj saw action in 368 NHL games over the course of his 13-year career, in which he posted a 158-132-40 record with 18 shutouts and a .904 save percentage. The veteran netminder saw his spot as the No. 2 in Los Angeles taken over by Jack Campbell and instead spent the bulk of his final year playing with AHL Ontario. Drafted by the Avalanche with the 63rd overall pick in the 2001 NHL Draft, the Slovak spent six years in Colorado before playing for Montreal, Los Angeles and Tampa Bay.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Sent packing Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/27/18) Budaj was demoted to AHL Ontario on Tuesday, per the AHL transactions page.

    Rather than sending rookie Cal Peterson back to the minors, it appears the Kings have opted to keep the youth around and will instead send the veteran back to the minors. This could indicate that Jonathan Quick -- who was activated off injured reserve Tuesday -- will cede some starts in goal after a mediocre showing to open the season. Budaj should remain the top backup option if either of the two lands on injured reserve.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Allows goal in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/22/18) Budaj stopped two of three shots in relief during Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Cal Petersen got lit up for six goals before getting the hook in favor of Budaj. In three appearances this season, Budaj has allowed six goals on just 33 shots.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Ready for backup duty

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/16/18) Budaj (illness) will serve as the backup goalie for Friday's game versus the Blackhawks, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    This bodes well for Budaj's chances to start Saturday against the Predators, as Cal Petersen will get Friday's start. Budaj struggled in his only start of the year, allowing four goals on 19 shots to a strong Toronto team Tuesday.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Questionable against Blackhawks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/16/18) Budaj is under the weather and could miss Friday's clash with Chicago, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

    Even if Budaj is healthy enough to suit up, it seems unlikely he will be between the pipes, which means Cal Petersen is slated to make his first NHL start -- although the team has not provided confirmation of its starting keeper. The veteran Budaj will likely get the start for the second game of the Kings' back-to-back versus Nashville on Saturday.
