Player Overview

Peters has had the benefit of watching his two older brothers, Justin (Carolina Hurricanes) and Anthony (Canadian University system) go through their draft years. Both goaltenders, Alex on the other hand, seemed to find a fit on the blueline. And that decision has paid off for him, as he has been able to learn from his brothers, in terms of positioning, on where to be to make it easier for his goaltender to stop the puck.

However, positioning is not his only strength. With great size, Peters also has the temperament to be a solid defensive dman. He plays the game with a physical edge and doesn’t shy away from finishing his checks, but also displays a good reach, breaking up plays with his stick as well as his body.

The big defender wants to work on his offensive but has shown a good first pass. Peters make good decisions at both ends of the ice and has certainly garnered some attention for his defensive focus, standing out in the CHL Prospects Game, showcasing his shutdown potential.
