The Carolina Hurricanes could be ready to make room in their crowded crease.

The talk Saturday was that Carolina GM Jim Rutherford has been calling around to see what kind of market there is for goalie Justin Peters. The Hurricanes also have netminders Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin.

The belief is the Edmonton Oilers, who still need to address their goaltending, have more than a passing interest in Peters.

The 27-year-old has a solid .925 save-percentage with a 2.23 GAA on an inconsistent Carolina team.

He’d be a nice fit.
