An interview with Lakers goaltender alumni, Anthony Peters, aired on AM920 CKNX radio’s Hometown Heroes segment this past week.
Anthony is currently in his first year in the OHL playing for the Oshawa Generals. He was selected by Oshawa in the 3rd round, 42nd overall in the 2006 OHL Priority Selection draft. He’s played in 10 games this season and has a 1-5 record with two shootouts.
Last season, Anthony played on the Lakers Minor Midget team where he posted a 1.43 GAA with 10 shutouts. In preparation for last year’s draft, the OHL Scouting Report on Anthony said:
“Anthony is a very good goaltending prospect. He is big and he moves very well and is fundamentally very good. He stays square to the puck. A good glove hand and doesn't allow too many rebounds. Anthony generally displays excellent concentration and therefore doesn’t give up too many soft goals. He has had to stand up tall to ensure a victory on a number of occasions.”
In the radio interview, Anthony reflects on his experience with the Generals and the team’s prospects, the differences between playing minor midget AAA and OHL hockey, and what it is like being the youngest player on the team when several of the players are as old as 19 and 20.
We’re proud of Anthony, and all our Lakers alumni, and wish Anthony well through the rest of the season.
