News: Capitals goalie coach Mitch Korn said that Peters will compete with Phillip Grubauer for the backup job behind presumed starter Braden Holtby, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Impact: Peters was brought in during the previous offseason to be the primary backup for Braden Holtby, but his struggles in 2014-15 combined with Grubauer's excellent campaign in the minors have put Peters on the hot seat. With a 3-6-1 record, 3.25 GAA, and .881 save percentage in 12 games last season, Peters will need to shine in training camp if he is to fend off Grubauer, but is not likely to have much fantasy relevance behind the Vezina-caliber Holtby even if he does earn the backup spot, so his fantasy prospects are dwindling.
