Hurricanes recall Khudobin from AHL

The Carolina Hurricanes recalled goalie Anton Khudobin from Charlotte of the American Hockey League on Tuesday.

Khudobin, 27, has not played in an NHL game since sustaining an ankle injury Oct. 13 against the Phoenix Coyotes. During a conditioning stint with the Checkers, Khudobin went 1-1-0 with a 3.03 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. He was named the first star of Charlotte's game Monday after stopping 41 shots in a 3-2 win against Rockford.

Khudobin is 2-0-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .929 save percentage in three games for the Hurricanes, who also have goalies Cam Ward and Justin Peters on the roster.

Carolina enters its game Tuesday against the Montreal Canadiens on a five-game winless streak and 1-4-4 in its past nine games.

Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
