A native of Saskatoon, Peters played five years of junior hockey with his hometown Saskatoon Blades before turning professional in 2003, playing one year in the American Hockey League (AHL) before spending two with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL. He signed with the Calgary Flames in 2005 and spent four years with their minor league organization, first for the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights, then with the Quad City Flames. He made his National Hockey League (NHL) debut with the Flames in 2008–09 and scored his first goal on March 3, 2009, against the Ottawa Senators. Peters appeared in 16 games with the Flames.
In the 2009 off-season, he left the Flames organization, signing a one-year contract with the Dallas Stars. He appeared in 11 NHL games with the Stars in 2009–10 but spent most of the season with their AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars.
Following the 2009-10 season, Peters again moved on, signing a two-year deal with the Minnesota Wild. On July 1, 2012, Peters signed a one-year, two way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins worth $600,000 at the NHL level. In the 2013–14 season, Peters returned to the Minnesota Wild organization by signing with AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild, for their inaugural season.
Peters finished his career in Denmark's Metal Ligaen. According to TSN, Peters was criticized for placing a dangerous hit on Lasse Bang, who suffered a concussion as a result of the hit. Peters was given a six-game suspension as a result of the hit.
