Los Angeles Kings

Budaj leads the Kings onto the ice for warmups.

Budaj allowed one goal on 11 shots after replacing Jack Campbell in the Kings loss in Ottawa on October 13th. With both Campbell and Jonathan Quick each out with torn meniscus, Budaj will make his first start of the season. The last time Budaj was the Kings’ No.1 netminder, he went 27-20-3 with a 2.12 GAA, .917 SV% and seven shutouts.

The Kings have acquired Peter Budaj from the Lightning for Andy Andreoff.

Budaj, who was acquired from the Kings back in February of 2017, appeared in just 15 games over a season and a half in Tampa Bay. Budaj was limited to just eight starts due to injury and poor play last season and was ultimately passed on the depth chart by Louis Domingue, who projects as Andrei Vaslievskiy’s backup next season. Budaj returns to Los Angeles, where he will be Jonathan Quick’s backup and where he was 27-20-3 with a 2.12 GAA, .917 SV% and seven shutouts while Quick was hurt in 2017.

The Lightning have recalled Peter Budaj from Syracuse (AHL).

Budaj has been sidelined with a leg injury since December 29th, but just wrapped up a conditioning stint with Syracuse. Budaj was 0-1-1 with a 2.95 GAA and .887 SV% with the Crunch and returns to the Lightning where he was 3-3-1 with a 3.80 GAA and .878 SV% before getting hurt. Louis Domingue hasn’t been much better and the two of them will stay on the roster behind Andrei Vasilevskiy. With the trade deadline behind us, the Lightning can carry all three goalies without any issue.

Budaj will start Friday vs. the Flyers.

Budaj allowed five goals on 37 shots in the Lightning’s win in Colorado on December 16th. He hasn’t seen a lot of playing time because Andrei Vasilevskiy has been fantastic all season. Budaj comes in at 3-1-0 with a 3.50 GAA and .888 SV% in his last four starts.

Budaj will start Saturday in Colorado.

Budaj allowed two goals on 30 shots in the Lightning’s win over the Avalanche on December 7th. With Andrei Vasilevskiy starting seven of the last eight games, Budaj will give him a breather tonight as he goes up against Colorado again. Playing behind one of the most dominant teams in the NHL makes Budaj an intriguing spot-start option tonight.

Budaj will start Thursday vs. the Avalanche.

Budaj allowed five goals on 34 shots in the Lightning’s loss in Pittsburgh on November 25th. Andrei Vasilevskiy started the last four games, so Budaj will give him a break tonight vs. the Avalanche. The veteran backup has gone 1-2-1 with a 3.75 GAA and .867 SV% in four starts this season.

Budaj leads the Lightning onto the ice for warmups.

Budaj allowed two goals on 24 shots in the Lightning’s win in Los Angeles on November 9th. With Andrei Vasilevskiy being a workhorse all season Budaj hasn’t played much but it looks like he’ll get his fourth start tonight in Pittsburgh. This is normally not the best building for a spot-start, but the Penguins offence has been lacklustre so far this season.
