Petersen secured a three-year, $2.575 million contract with Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Petersen performed well in his brief 11-game stint in the NHL last season, posting a 5-4-1 record and .924 save percentage. The 24-year-old will likely spend another year or two developing in the minors, though a strong showing in training camp could see him unseat Jack Campbell for the backup job behind Jonathan Quick.
Petersen was issued a qualifying offer from the Kings on Sunday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Under the terms of his qualifying offer, Petersen would earn $832,500 on a two-way deal that would allow him to continue playing in both the AHL and NHL. The 24-year-old suited up in 11 games last year, going 5-4-1 to go along with a 2.60 GAA and .924 save percentage. The deal will give the Kings the opportunity to match another deal from a different team, while Los Angeles can also work on a longer-term deal with the netminder.
Petersen was sent to AHL Ontario on Monday to make room for goalie Jack Campbell (knee), Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Petersen wasn't going to get much playing time behind Jonathan Quick, and with Campbell recovering, the writing was on the wall. He'll have many more chances to develop in Ontario and looks like an exciting option in dynasty leagues when he gets a chance at a full-time NHL job.
Petersen made 22 saves on 25 shots and escaped with a 4-3 overtime win over the Golden Knights on Sunday.
Sunday wasn't the kind of performance Petersen needs if he's going to win more starts from Jonathan Quick. Instead of impressing, he needed the Kings to bail him out after conceding thrice to a less-than-stellar attack from Vegas, which isn't a great sign. Quick remains firmly entrenched as L.A.'s top goaltender, and Petersen's value is limited at best in most leagues.

Now that Jonathan Quick is healthy, Petersen has been reduced to a backup role for Los Angeles, appearing in just two games since Nov. 30. The rookie netminder owns a .927 save percentage and 2.57 GAA, making him an interesting option in dynasty formats. Unless Quick goes down with another injury, Petersen's regular fantasy value is pretty low.
Petersen stopped 43 of 47 shots Tuesday, but it wasn't enough in a 4-3 overtime loss to Buffalo.
Petersen has performed admirably this season despite the poor team surrounding him. Even with Jonathan Quick returning, Petersen has been more than capable of standing up to the barrage that the Kings' goaltender has had to face this season. With a .940 save percentage in his past four games, he's worth starting even if his team isn't likely to get him many wins.
Petersen will make his first start of December on Tuesday against Buffalo.
Since Jonathan Quick inserted himself back in the fold, Petersen has seen his playing time drop significantly. The 24-year-old will get an opportunity Tuesday against the Sabres in his first start since Nov. 30. Buffalo, since winning 10 in a row, is 0-3-2 in its last five games.
Petersen allowed two goals on 35 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Flames on Friday.
The Flames finished off the Kings with two empty-net goals in the final minute. But in his first NHL season, Petersen has played very well, posting a 4-4-0 record and 2.41 GAA on a last-place team. Even more impressively, he owns a .951 save percentage in the last three games. Owners can trust him despite the poor team around him.
Petersen will defend the road cage in Friday's game versus the Flames, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Petersen has won his last two games, recording a .961 save percentage between the contests. The 24-year-old has been a game-changing surprise for the Kings, and he'll look to keep up the stellar play against a division rival that's averaging 3.36 goals per game to rank ninth in the league.
Petersen stopped 32 of 33 shots in Tuesday's overtime win versus the Canucks.
Petersen made multiple highlight-reel saves, but it was capped off by reaching his glove across a wide-open net and stopping a 'sure-thing' goal from Loui Eriksson. The rookie goaltender now has a .927 save percentage and 4-3-0 record through eight outings, but he may see his starts pulled back moving forward with Jonathan Quick (knee) activated from injured reserve.

Petersen was sharp in his last start, turning away 32 of 34 shots en route to a 5-2 victory over the Oilers on Sunday. The 24-year-old American will look to stay dialed in and pick up his fourth win of the campaign in a road matchup with a middling Vancouver offense that's averaging 3.33 goals per game at home this season, 15th in the NHL.
Petersen allowed two goals while making 32 saves during Sunday's 5-2 win over Edmonton.
Petersen allowed a goal in each of the first two periods before blanking the Oilers in the final frame to help the Kings pick up the win. The victory moves the goalie's record to 3-3-0 on the year.
Petersen will get the start Sunday against Edmonton, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Petersen has lost his last two starts, giving up nine goals combined over the two games. Perhaps a matchup with an up-and-down Oilers squad is precisely what the 24-year-old needs. Then again, Petersen has struggled of late so this could go either way.
Petersen yielded three goals on 28 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Canucks on Saturday.
Since earning a shutout against the Blues on Nov. 19, Petersen has allowed nine goals on his last 59 shots (.847 save percentage) against the Avalanche and Canucks. Those two starts pretty much ruin his fast start, dropping his save percentage to .917 and raising his GAA to 2.81. Petersen owners will feel even worse when they realize the Canucks had lost eight straight before facing the Kings and Petersen on Saturday night.
Petersen will guard the goal in Saturday's home game against the Canucks, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Petersen struggled in his last start, surrendering six goals on 31 shots en route to an ugly 7-3 loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday. The American netminder will look to shake off that poor performance and pick up his third victory of the campaign in a favorable home matchup with a struggling Canucks club that's lost eight consecutive games.
Petersen yielded six goals on 31 shots before being pulled in the third period of Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Colorado.
The rookie netminder recorded his first career shutout against the Blues on Monday, but things quickly turned sour. Even with the brutal performance Wednesday, Petersen owns a 2.75 GAA and .922 save percentage, taking over No. 1 goalie duties while Jonathan Quick (knee) is out.
Petersen will get the start in goal Wednesday versus Colorado, Dan Greenspan of NHL.com reports.
The Kings appear set to ride the youngster until Jonathan Quick returns. Petersen has played extremely well in his first taste of NHL action, going 2-1-0 in four starts while posting a 1.64 GAA and .951 save percentage. Meanwhile, the 24-year-old netminder will hope he can stifle an Avs team that ranks third in average scoring at 3.55 goals per game.
Petersen had a 29-save shutout in Monday's win over the Blues.
This is Petersen's first career shutout, and he's been outstanding in his first four NHL appearances, recording a 2-1-0 record and .950 save percentage. At this point, the Kings will ride Petersen's hot hand instead of a more-experienced Peter Budaj until Jonathan Quick returns from a knee injury. Fantasy teams in goaltender-depleted leagues will want to pick up Petersen immediately.
Petersen will start his third straight game versus the Blues on Monday, Louie Korac of NHL.com reports.
Petersen made 38 of a possible 42 save versus the Predators on Saturday for a decent .905 save percentage, which was clearly enough to impress the coaching staff and earn another start. The Waterloo, Iowa native was expected to serve as the No. 2 behind Peter Budaj after Jack Campbell (knee) was injured, but it appears Petersen is taking hold of his opportunity in the NHL and won't easily be bumped from the crease.
Petersen made 38 saves in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Predators. He allowed four goals.
Petersen is the first Kings goalie to start his first two NHL games on back-to-back days since 1967. Unfortunately, getting the call against the efficient and powerful Preds was a tough one. The kid has played solid hockey so far and he'll see more ice time with so many of the Kings' goalies out with injuries. Take a chance. What do you have to lose at this point?
