Canes Agree to Terms with Anton Khudobin
The goaltender has agreed to a two-year contract with Carolina.
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 (HOO-doh-bihn) on a two-year contract. The deal will pay Khudobin $2 million for the 2014-15 season and $2.5 million in 2015-16.

“We are pleased to be able to keep Anton with the Hurricanes,” Rutherford said. “He has played well this season and signing him helps solidify our team’s goaltending situation.”

Khudobin, 27, is 13-8-0 with a 2.17 goals-against average and .927 save percentage in 22 games with the Hurricanes this season. He was named the NHL’s First Star for the month of January after matching a Hurricanes franchise record for wins in a month with 10, registering a goals-against average of 2.19 and save percentage of .927 in 14 games.

A native of Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, Khudobin was drafted by Minnesota in the seventh round of the 2004 Draft, and has a career NHL record of 27-13-1 with a 2.11 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in 43 games with Minnesota, Boston and Carolina. The Hurricanes acquired Khudobin as a free agent on July 5, 2013. 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).
