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

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
