The Ducks have reassigned goaltender Igor Bobkov
to the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Bobkov, 23 (1/2/91), was recalled from Norfolk on Nov. 4 but did not make an appearance with Anaheim prior to today’s roster move. Bobkov has posted a 20-23-2 record with two shutouts, a 3.05 goals-against average (GAA) and a .905 save percentage in 46 career AHL games with Norfolk and Syracuse. Bobkov split the 2013-14 season between Norfolk and Utah (ECHL), going a combined 22-11-5 with two shutouts, a 2.13 GAA and a .920 SV%. The 6-6, 238-pound goaltender ranked second among ECHL netminders in GAA (2.04) and fifth in SV% (.921), while also earning ECHL Goaltender of the Month honors for February and March.
Selected by Anaheim in the third round (76th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Bobkov helped lead Team Russia to gold at the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championship by stopping all 20 shots faced in relief en route to a 5-3 win over Canada on Jan. 5, 2011. Bobkov has also represented Russia at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship and the 2009 Under-18 World Championship.
