  • Kings' Peter Budaj: Traded to Kings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/13/18) Budaj was dealt to Los Angeles on Wednesday in exchange for center Andy Andreoff.

    Budaj wasn't going to get a real chance in Tampa at age 36, so this gives him a chance to get back on the ice as a backup in Los Angeles, where he was a strong option in 2016-17. However, with Jack Campbell sitting behind Jonathan Quick, Budaj will have to earn the No. 2 job to get the chance to post solid numbers again. Budaj is likely no better than a spot starter at this point in his career, and goalies of his caliber will almost always be available to fantasy owners on the waiver wire.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Stuck in rut as third goalie

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) Budaj remains with the Lightning but has not seen game action since mid-March.

    Louis Domingue has moved into the backup role ahead of Budaj, who is just a year removed from a brilliant performance in Los Angeles (27-20-3, 2.12 GAA, .917 save percentage). His stay in Tampa has resulted in extremely limited ice time and that won't change. Budaj is a journeyman whose fantasy future lies in spot starts, but that's if he returns next year. He will be 36 to start next season.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Pressed into relief duty

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/18) Budaj (leg) made a relief appearance in Tuesday's 7-4 home loss to the Senators, allowing one goal on four shots.

    Budaj stepped in for traditional starter Andrei Vasilevskiy to start the third period after Vasilevskiy yielded six goals on 29 shots. There should be less focus on the fact that Budaj allowed a goal than his proving that he could at least withstand a whole period of hockey having missed the previous 29 games. With the Bolts being the first team to clinch a playoff berth and Vasilevskiy said to be dealing with fatigue, it's likely that we'll see as much of Budaj as he can physically handle down the final stretch of the regular season.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Activated off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/18) Budaj (leg) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the official NHL media site.

    Budaj was recalled from his conditioning loan Tuesday, so it's not a huge surprise that he will retake his spot as the team's backup netminder. The Bolts also sent Louis Domingue back to AHL Syracuse, leaving Budaj as the only netminder available other than starter Andrei Vasilevskiy. However, his starts will likely be few and far between.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Recalled from minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/18) Budaj (leg) returned from a conditioning assignment with AHL Syracuse on Monday.

    Budaj started a pair of outings for the Crunch, in which he posted a 2.95 GAA and .887 save percentage. Not exactly stellar numbers, but two full 60-minute games will go a long way toward getting the netminder back to 100 percent. The next step will be the team activating him off injured reserve. Fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised to see the Lightning give the veteran a couple extra games in order to rest Andrei Vasilevskiy.
