Justin Peters (born August 30, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Texas Stars in the American Hockey League (AHL) while under contract to the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League (NHL).
After playing Junior A hockey with the Vaughan Vipers of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL), Peters began a four-season Ontario Hockey League (OHL) career with the Toronto St. Michael's Majors and Plymouth Whalers. He was drafted in the second round, 38th overall, by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, then began his professional career in 2006–07 with the Hurricanes' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Albany River Rats. He was demoted to the ECHL for parts of the 2007–08 season, but returned to the River Rats in 2008–09.
On February 5, 2010, the Carolina Hurricanes recalled Justin Peters from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League after Cam Ward suffered an upper body injury. He made his NHL debut for the Carolina Hurricanes on February 6, 2010, starting against the New York Islanders. He had 34 saves in a 3-1 victory.
After 8 seasons within the Hurricanes organization, Peters left the Hurricanes as a free agent and agreed to a two-year contract with the Washington Capitals on July 1, 2015.
On July 1, 2016, Peters left the Capitals as a free agent and signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Coyotes. He was assigned to begin the 2016–17 season with the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, the inaugural Tucson Roadrunners. With the Coyotes impacted by an injury to starting goaltender, Mike Smith, Peters was recalled and appeared in 3 games. While returned to the Roadrunners, Peters along with Justin Hache, were traded by Arizona to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Brendan Ranford and Branden Troock on February 1, 2017.
He has a brother Alexander, who was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, playing for the Plymouth Whalers (Defense, OHL) and a brother Anthony playing for the St. Mary's Huskies (Goalie, Canadian University)
