Kings' Cal Petersen: Yields three goals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen gave up three goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

The Kings were down 3-0 after two periods, but Petersen was strong in the third, allowing them to get within a goal. It still went down as a loss for Petersen in his season debut. He posted a 2.64 GAA and a .922 save percentage in eight games last year and is set to be Jonathan Quick's primary backup in 2020-21. Petersen's fantasy value is limited to deep formats -- Quick will see a large chunk of the starts, and the Kings' rebuild will make wins hard to come by.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Pegged for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen will defend the home net in Tuesday's matchup against the Wild, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Petersen made 18 starts over the past two seasons, and he was quite impressive in the small sample, generating a .923 save percentage, a 2.62 GAA and a 10-7-1 record. The 26-year-old should garner a handful of spot starts this season as he looks to prove he can eventually be Jonathan Quick's successor. However, Petersen will have his hands full Tuesday, as the Avalanche are one of the most talented offensive teams in the league.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Likely to dress Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen is one of three Kings expected to return to the ice Saturday after meeting the standards of the league's COVID-19 protocols, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports

With No. 3 netminder Troy Grosenick hitting the waiver wire Friday, it's safe to say the Kings don't expect any setbacks that would keep Petersen from dressing Saturday. Jonathan Quick is still the expected starter, though, so don't count on Petersen as your netminder Saturday in daily leagues. If he's on your roster in redraft leagues and one of your other goalies doesn't play Saturday, it should be safe to activate Petersen on the off-chance that Quick has a bad night and gets pulled.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Absence clarified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen is unavailable due to the league's COVID-19 protocols.

The specifics of his placement remain unclear, but Petersen will not be able to practice or travel with the team until he's been cleared. Petersen was listed as a non-roster player for Thursday's game against the Wild, so this news clarified his absence. Look for Troy Grosenick to handle No. 2 duties behind Jonathan Quick as long as Petersen is sidelined.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Lands on non-roster injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen (undisclosed) was placed on non-roster injured reserve Wednesday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Petersen's IR designation could see Troy Grosenick start the year as the No. 2 behind Jonathan Quick, though players on non-roster, IR can be activated at any point. If the youngster is out too long, it may impact his ability to see action as the backup, though there likely won't be too many starts available unless Quick picks up an injury.

Kings' Cal Petersen: Unfit to practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Petersen (undisclosed) was deemed unfit to participate in Saturday's practice, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

It's unclear what Petersen is dealing with, and teams have been coy regarding injuries so far in training camp. Petersen is looking to take on a larger role with the Kings this season now that Jack Campbell is in Toronto. The 26-year-old looks locked into the backup role once he's healthy.

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.
