Hurricanes' Khudobin leaves with lower-body injury

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Carolina Hurricanes goalie Anton Khudobin left the game Sunday against the Phoenix Coyotes midway through the second period at after taking an awkward spill. Khudobin came out to play a dump-in in the top the left circle, but fell to his knees. After making his way back to the crease, Khudobin signaled the bench for help, needing assistance to skate off the ice on one leg.

Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said after the game that he was unsure of the injury's severity and that Khudobin will have an MRI on Monday.

"It didn't look good, obviously, the way he went off the ice," Muller said.

Khodobin had stopped 18 of 20 Phoenix shots before being replaced by Cam Ward. He was starting his third game of the season, having alternated for the first six games with Ward, and entered the game with a 1.50 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
