Hurricanes, G Anton Khudobin agree to 2-year deal worth $4.5 million

RALEIGH, N.C. - Goaltender Anton Khudobin and the Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to a $4.5 million, two-year contract.

The team said Tuesday that the deal will pay Khudobin $2 million next season and $2.5 million in 2015-16.

General manager Jim Rutherford says signing Khudobin "helps solidify our team's goaltending situation."

The Hurricanes signed Khudobin to an $800,000, one-year deal last July to back up Cam Ward.

Khudobin is 13-8-0 with a 2.17 goals-against average in 22 games with the Hurricanes and was the NHL's first star for January after his club-record-tying 10 wins in the month.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
