  • Kings' Peter Budaj: Lets in two in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/18) Budaj allowed two third-period goals against Vancouver, stopping seven of nine shots overall and leading to a 4-3 overtime loss Thursday.

    This isn't the way to win a job. After Jack Campbell stopped 22 of 23 and handed Budaj a 3-1 lead, the veteran Slovak couldn't hold it, allowing the Canucks to overcome the deficit. A .778 percentage just won't cut it, and it's a really bad night to have it when his competition, Campbell, had a .957 mark. This will not be an easy battle to win the job to back up Jonathan Quick.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Expected to play again Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/18) Budaj is projected to cover the road net against the Canucks on Thursday night, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

    Budaj was relentless in relief of Jack Campbell in Tuesday's intrasquad contest against the Coyotes, with the former setting aside all nine shots in his preseason debut. Those two netminders are locked into a fierce battle for the No. 2 job behind Jonathan Quick to open the 2018-19 season.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Perfect in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Budaj made nine saves without giving up a goal in relief of Jack Campbell in Tuesday's 4-2 split-squad road loss to the Coyotes.

    Budaj and Campbell figure to battle for the No. 2 job behind Jonathan Quick this season. The latter managed to save only 18 of 22 shots in this intrasquad contest, and there's something to be said about how Budaj maintained a 27-20-3 record, 2.12 GAA and .917 save percentage as a fill-in for an injured Quick during the 2016-17 campaign. This is still Campbell's job to lose, but Budaj certainly can create a case and Tuesday's happenings dump a few extra marks on his side of the ledger.

    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.
