RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with goaltender Anton Khudobin (AN-tawn khuh-DAW-bihn) on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Khudobin $800,000 for the 2013-14 season.

“Anton proved to be a very capable NHL backup for the Bruins last year,” said Rutherford. “This solidifies an elite goaltending tandem for the Hurricanes.”

Khudobin, 27, went 9-4-1 with a 2.32 goals-against average and .920 save percentage in 14 games with the Boston Bruins during the 2012-13 season. Originally from Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, he also appeared in 26 games for Atlant Moscow Oblast of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) during the NHL work stoppage, going 6-14-4 with a 2.96 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in 26 games played.

Drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the seventh round, 206th overall, of the 2004 NHL Draft, Khudobin (5’11”, 203 lbs.) has appeared in 21 career NHL games with Minnesota and Boston, going 14-5-0 with a 2.03 goals-against average, .933 save percentage and two shutouts. He has represented Russia at several international competitions, earning a goal medal at the 2004 U18 World Championship and silver medals at the 2005 and 2006 World Junior Championships (U20). Khudobin was the ECHL’s Goaltender of the Year in 2008, after going 20-1-4 with a 1.98 goals-against average in 27 games with the Texas Wildcatters, and spent part the following season with Carolina’s ECHL affiliate, the Florida Everblades.
