Justin Peters added to Canadian Roster for 2010 AHL All-Star Classic

 

River Rats Goaltender Replaces Brent Krahn Of The Texas Stars

 

SPRINGFIELD, MAThe American Hockey League today announced that Albany River Rats goaltender Justin Peters has been named to the Canadian roster for the 2010 Time Warner Cable AHL All-Star Classic, to take place January 18-19 in Portland, Maine.

Peters replaces the Texas Stars' Brent Krahn, who will miss the event due to injury.

 "I thought he definitely deserved to be on the All-Star team and it’s good to see that he was recognized," said River Rats Head Coach and General Manager Jeff Daniels. "When someone went down, he was the first guy that was called so it was good for him and for his confidence and it shows just how far he’s come this year."

Peters, 23, was a second-round draft choice by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2004. The fourth-year pro from Blyth, Ont., has a record of 12-10-2 with one shutout this season, ranking eighth in the league with a 2.22 goals-against average and seventh with a .928 save percentage in 24 appearances for the River Rats. 

"I’m really looking forward to going there with (Bryan) Rodney, it’s exciting," said Peters. "After the game last night the coaches came in the room and told everyone that a goalie had been hurt and that I was selected to replace him, so I’m honored by that and excited. I’ve heard it’s a lot of fun."
