With all the injuries that have befallen the Wild early this season there has been a decent amount of traffic between Houston and Minneapolis. This time, however, a player is heading to meet the Wild on a road trip. Warren Peters (not his first time around) will be heading to Calgary to meet the team tonight.
Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has recalled center Warren Peters from the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Peters, 29 (7/10/82), has recorded eight points (4-4=8) including three power-play goals in 13 games with Houston this season. He leads the Aeros with 36 penalty minutes (PIM). The 6-foot-0, 205-pound native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, skated in 62 games with the Aeros last season, tallying 32 points (15-17=32) and 47 PIM. He added four goals and eight assists for 12 points and 16 PIM in 24 playoff contests with Houston. Peters also appeared in 11 games with Minnesota, registering one goal and four PIM.
Peters was originally signed as a free agent by the Wild on July 2, 2010, and has skated parts of three NHL seasons with Calgary, Dallas and Minnesota. In 38 career NHL contests, he has tallied three goals and 18 PIM.
