Andrew Peters isn't ashamed of what he did. It was neither illegal nor against NHL rules at the time. That's why the young enforcer Wednesday wasn't afraid to admit to The Buffalo News he used androstenedione before he made the Buffalo Sabres' roster out of training camp in 2003 and realized his NHL dream. Peters is believed to be the first active NHL player to publicly admit having used a performance-enhancing supplement. He and his older brother, Geoff Peters, who spent the last two seasons with the Rochester Americans, said they used "andro" in the summer of 2003. "You use what's at your disposal," Andrew Peters said. "No one said you can't, so why not? We didn't do anything illegal. It was a supplement. We weren't hiding anything. I had nothing to hide. My girlfriend at the time knew. My parents knew."
