ESTERO, FL – The Florida Everblades proudly announced today that the ECHL has named Everblades goaltender Justin Peters the Goaltender of the Week for the week of Nov. 26 – Dec. 1.

The 6-foot-1 and 213-pound net-minder was 3-0-0 with a 1.67 goals-against average and a .959 save percentage as the Everblades swept their series against Alaska and moved into second place in the South Division.

After making 34 saves in a 4-1 win against Alaska on Nov. 28, the Blyth, Ontario native stopped 43 shots in a 3-1 victory on Nov. 30 and turned aside 39 of 42 shots for a 4-3 win on Dec. 1.

The 21 year old has won his last five games to improve to 9-3-0. He leads the ECHL in wins and is fourth with a .936 save percentage and fifth with a 2.05 goals-against average.

Selected in the second round (38th overall) by Carolina in the 2004 National Hockey League Draft and under NHL contract to the Hurricanes, Peters was 10-18-0 with a 3.26 goals-against average and a .886 save percentage in 34 games with Albany of the American Hockey League as a rookie in 2006-07.

Peters played four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League where he was 88-68-19 with eight shutouts, a 2.87 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage in 189 games with Toronto St. Michael’s and Plymouth. Justin began his minor hockey career in Blyth, Ontario and played several years for the Huron Perth Lakers at the AAA level.

The Lakers family extends their best wishes and hopes of a speedy recovery to Anthony Peters, the middle of three current and former Lakers: Justin, Anthony and Alex. Anthony was involved in an automobile collision as a pedestrian in Windsor recently. Anthony is a goaltender with the OHL Kingston Frontenacs with a promising future in the sport.
