Taylor Peters (C)
Enters his first professional season in 2013-14. Undrafted, Peters signed a three-year entry level contract with the Dallas Stars on March 4, 2013. He played parts of five seasons of major junior hockey for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. In 319 career WHL games Peters scored 116 points (45 goals, 71 assists) and 224 penalty minutes and he ranks second all-time in Winterhawks franchise history in games played. He helped Portland win three consecutive WHL Western Conference titles (2011-2013), but lost in the 2011 WHL Finals to the Kootenay Ice in five games and the 2012 WHL Finals to the Edmonton Oil Kings in seven games. Peters and the Winterhawks earned their revenge against the Oil Kings in the 2013 WHL Finals, beating Edmonton in six games to capture the 2013 Ed Chynoweth Cup as the WHL Champions and earn a spot in the 2013 Memorial Cup Tournament in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Portland advanced to the Memorial Cup Final, but lost to the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads 6-4 on May 26, 2013 at Credit Union Centre.
