Stars acquire goalie Justin Peters in trade with Coyotes

Dallas Stars GM joins HC at Noon to try and put his finger on his club's issues this season, says on top of the injuries, our top guys have struggled.

The Dallas Stars have acquired goaltender Justin Peters in a trade with the Arizona Coyotes, the team announced Wednesday.

The deal also sees defenceman Justin Hache head to Dallas, while forwards Brendan Ranford and Branden Troock join the Coyotes.

Peters, 30, is joining a team that’s struggling to reach its potential—and one with a big question mark in net, where the Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi split responsibilities.

Peters has spent time with the Coyotes and the AHL’s Tuscon Roadrunners this season, appearing in three NHL games in 2016-17 with a 0-1-0 record. He has a 5-6-0 record in 12 starts with Tuscon this year.

The Ontario native has played 83 career NHL games, split between the Coyotes, Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals. In 270 career AHL games, he has a 2.81 GAA, a .906 save percentage and 15 shutouts.

Hache and Troock have yet to play any games in the NHL, while Ranford has not played an NHL game since making his debut with Dallas in 2014-15.
