Kings' Cal Petersen: Set up well for 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Takes down Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen allowed two goals on 26 shots in a 3-2 win over the Senators.

After a rocky start to his season, Petersen has won four straight starts. He improved to 5-3-0 with a 2.64 GAA and a .922 save percentage in eight games. The 25-year-old Petersen can be deployed in DFS with a fair amount of confidence -- he's given up seven goals in his last four outings.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Slated to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Third consecutive win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Gets starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen will guard the home goal during Saturday's matchup with Minnesota,'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.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Upsets Vegas in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Draws start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen will guard the crease for Sunday's contest in Vegas, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Petersen is coming off his best outing of the season, allowing just one goal on 36 shots in a win over Pittsburgh on Feb. 26. The 25-year-old netminder has recorded a 3.02 GAA and .913 save percentage in five NHL appearances since being promoted from the minors in early February. He'll face a tough test on the road against a red-hot Golden Knights lineup.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Excellent against Penguins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen turned aside 35 of 36 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.

Petersen was tested often, but he was up to the task, with his shutout bid spoiled at 6:42 of the third period on a Bryan Rust goal. The 25-year-old goalie improved to 2-3-0 with a 3.02 GAA and a .913 save percentage through five games. Petersen will likely get a number of chances to prove himself to head coach Todd McLellan, but it remains to be seen if the Iowa native can be trusted in deeper fantasy formats.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Set for second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will tend the home twine Wednesday against the Penguins, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Petersen was a stud last year and has shown some of the same upside this season, though he's allowed three or more goals in all four starts. The Penguins lost three straight games before the trade deadline, but they brought in reinforcements and will be a tough task for Petersen, as they've generated 3.03 goals per road contest this season.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Decent effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen yielded three goals on 30 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Oilers on Sunday.

Petersen was the unlucky goalie tasked with stopping Connor McDavid in the latter's return from a quadriceps injury. The 25-year-old goalie wasn't quite up to task. He dropped to 1-3-0 with a 3.53 GAA and an .897 save percentage in his first four starts this year. Those numbers aren't likely to improve much behind a poor Kings team -- only fantasy owners in deep formats will have much interest in acquiring Petersen.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Guarding crease Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen will start Sunday's home contest against Edmonton, Dennis Bernstein of NHL Network reports.

Petersen was roughed up in his last outing, yielding five goals on 34 shots in a Feb. 18 loss to the Jets. The 25-year-old has allowed 11 goals in three starts since being recalled earlier this month. A matchup against Connor McDavid and the Oilers won't make things much easier for Petersen.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Bombed by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen gave up five goals on 33 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Jets.

It was a tough night for Petersen, who received little to no help from his teammates. Each of Winnipeg's first four goals came on an odd-man rush, while the fifth goal Peterson came via deflection. Petersen has allowed 11 goals over his first three starts behind a thin Los Angeles defensive corps that could soon take another hit with veteran Alec Martinez rumored to be on the move prior to Monday's trade deadline.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Presumed starter against Winnipeg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Ken Wiebe of The Athletic, Petersen was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll start between the pipes in Tuesday's road game versus the Jets.

Petersen picked up his first win of the season Wednesday against the Flames, stopping 35 of 38 shots in the process. The 25-year-old American will attempt to secure a second straight victory in a road matchup with a Winnipeg team that's only averaging 2.72 goals per game at home this campaign, 27th in the NHL.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Picks up first win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen stopped 35 of 38 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flames.

Unlike in his first start of the year, Petersen received some goal support from the Kings on Wednesday. The 25-year-old has allowed three goals in each of his two games so far. He'll see spot-starting duties behind Jonathan Quick down the stretch.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Starting against Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen will get the home start Wednesday against the Flames, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Now that Jack Campbell is in Toronto, Petersen is the No. 2 in Los Angeles. Head coach Todd McLellan relayed that Petersen could garner a steady amount of starts to keep Jonathan Quick fresh. This is Petersen's second start of the season, and it'll be a tough task, as the Flames are heating up with exactly six goals in consecutive contests.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Not a miracle worker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen made 31 saves in a 3-0 loss to the Devils on Saturday.

It was his season debut. Petersen got no help from his teammates, who struggled to even have decent chances, let alone shots. He's not the best fantasy option -- the Kings are 1-8-1 in their past 10 games and Petersen isn't a miracle worker.

February 7, 2020 02:48 PM
Kings' Cal Petersen: Starting in New Jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen will defend the blue paint during Saturday's road clash with the Devils, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Petersen has yet to play in the NHL this season, and he hasn't been great during his time in the AHL, either, compiling a 17-15-4 record while posting a 3.43 GAA and .906 save percentage in 37 appearances with Ontario. He'll attempt to pick up the sixth NHL victory of his young career in a road matchup with a New Jersey squad that's gone 7-9-10 at home this year.

February 6, 2020 11:36 AM
Kings' Cal Petersen: Called up Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen was called up from AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

With Jack Campbell traded away to the Maple Leafs, Petersen will get his turn at the NHL level as Jonathan Quick's backup. Petersen has a 3.43 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 37 appearances with a middling Ontario team this year. Petersen will likely have a chance to show what he's got, but behind a poor Kings team, he's probably not going to help fantasy owners much in 2019-20.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen was assigned to AHL Ontario on Tuesday.

This was unsurprising, as Petersen simply doesn't have an opportunity for playing time right now with Jonathan Quick and Jack Campbell both in Los Angeles. His contract places him on a two-way deal for this season only, so it's likely he'll spend the year in Ontario unless one of the netminders above him gets injured. If you can wait for him, he's a great piece to have in dynasty leagues, as the Kings have him on a three-year deal and almost certainly have an eye toward having him in Los Angeles full-time in 2021, when they'll have to expose a goaltender to Seattle in the expansion draft.

July 16, 2019 02:12 PM
Kings' Cal Petersen: Pens three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
