CYCLONES BOLSTER GOALTENDING WITH ADDITION OF PETERS

Fourth-Year Pro Ranks Second on Everblades’ All-Time Wins List

 

Cincinnati, OH- The Cincinnati Cyclones, proud ECHL affiliate of the American Hockey League’s (AHL) Rochester Americans and the National Hockey League’s (NHL) Buffalo Sabres, have signed goaltender Anthony Peters to a Standard Player Contract (SPC) for the 2017-18 season.

“Cincinnati is excited to announce the signing of Anthony Peters. He has proven in the past two years that he is a high-end goalie in this league and can carry a heavy workload,” said Cyclones Head Coach Matt Macdonald. “His character and work ethic are highly regarded, and in talking to him we know he is willing to do what it takes to be successful."

A native of Blyth, ON, Peters led the ECHL with 52 games played and ranked third with 31 wins last season with the Florida Everblades. Overall, Peters posted a 31-16-1 record along with a 3.11 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage. He won eight of his first 11 starts last season, while allowing three or fewer goals in eight of those games.

Peters’ best season as a pro came during his first full campaign in 2015-16 where he had a 27-15-1 record and posted a 2.20 GAA and a .920 SV%. He was named the Everblades’ Team MVP that year, and finished fifth in League MVP voting. He made his pro debut late in the 2014-15 season, earning a 31-save shutout against Greenville. In 100 ECHL games, Peters has amassed a record of 60-31-2, along with a 2.64 GAA and a .908 SV% with six shutouts. In addition to the Everblades, Peters has also seen time with the Americans along with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers.

“I have heard a lot of great things about the organization, management, and city of Cincinnati and I am really excited for this opportunity,” remarked Peters. “There is a tradition of winning in Cincinnati, and as a player I want to be in an environment like that.”

Prior to turning pro in 2015, Peters enjoyed a successful colligate career at St. Mary’s University in Canada. During his time with the Huskies, the 6-1, 195-pound netminder turned out a record of 52-27-0 to go along with a 2.58 GAA and a .911 SV%.
