The Carolina Hurricanes announced this morning that they just recalled Justin Peters from the Albany River Rats.  Goalie Michael Leighton went down with a lower body injury during the game in Montreal last night and apparently will not be available for tomorrow night's game against Toronto.

Peters, 23, has posted a 6-5-2 record, a 2.43 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage in 13 games with the River Rats this season. The Blythe, Ont., native is in his fourth professional season and has yet to make his NHL playing debut, though he did serve as the Hurricanes; backup goaltender for four games in December 2008. Peters (6’1", 205 lbs.) has posted a 42-56-6 record and a 2.92 goals-against average in 114 career AHL regular-season games with Albany since turning professional in 2006-07. Carolina drafted Peters in the second round, 38th overall, of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

The team sent Tim Conboy to Albany to make room for him within the team's salary cap.
