Peters and Jordan Named to AllStar Team


Today the American Hockey League announced that two players of the Charlotte Checkers will be attending the 2013 AHL AllStar Game being hosted in Providence, Rhode Island.  Along with coach Jeff Daniels, Michal Jordan and goaltender Justin Peters will be joining in on the festivities.

Justin Peters has been the go-to goaltender for the Checkers this season, especially with the call-up and signing of Dan Ellis to be Cam Ward’s back up goaltender for the Hurricanes. In Peter’s last five games he has posted a 4-1 record, three of those victories being shutouts.  Peters holds an overall record of 15-7-1, sporting a 2.32 goals against average and .918 save percentage.  Michal Jordan is currently sporting the best +/- rating of the team with 12 and played a pivotal part in the team’s match up against the Griffins, despite their overall 5-3 loss.  Jordan was able to post 2 goals to put his season tally up to 3 along with 8 helpers for a total of 11 points on the season.

The AllStar game is set to take place on Monday, January 28 at 7:00pm.
