Justin Peters has made it a threesome of goalies in the workouts this week at Raleigh Center Ice and is blunt when asked about his expectations for this season.
"I'm coming into camp to make the hockey team," Peters said today.
The Canes signed free agent Brian Boucher after the season and said the veteran goalie would be Cam Ward's backup this season. Ward was in net for 74 games last season, a career high and a busy workload the Canes want to lighten.
Where does that leave Peters, the Canes' backup last season? Apparently headed to the Charlotte Checkers (AHL), where he will team with Mike Murphy in net.
