The Carolina Hurricanes have signed goaltender Anton Khudobin to a one year, $800K deal.
Khudobin was traded to the Boston Bruins from the Minnesota Wild on February 28, 2011 in exchange for Jeff Penner and Mikko Lehtonen. This was the best possible situation for the 2004 draft pick, with Tim Thomas expected to retire in the near future. While playing with Boston this past season, Khudo recorded a 9-4-1 record with the Bruins to go along with a 2.32 GAA.
Prior to the NHL, He was a consistent starter for Russia’s national junior squad, earning a gold medal at the 2004 IIHF World Under-18 Championships and silver medals at the 2005 and 2006 IIHF World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.
