Andrew Peters knows his role and said that he does not plan his fights but is always ready to fight if needed. He's determined to prove that he's a great 4th line player and is going to do everything he can to not be sent down to the Amerks.
When asked about Keaton Ellerby, Pete DeBoer said that Ellerby put on 20 pounds of muscle over the summer and he needs to be more assertive.
