The Ducks have recalled goaltender Anton Khudobin
from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). The Ducks have also placed defenseman Clayton Stoner
on injured reserve (hip flexor). In addition, Frederik Andersen
is doubtful for tonight’s contest with an upper-body injury.
Khudobin, 29 (5/7/86), has gone 3-3-0 with one shutout, a 2.70 goals-against average (GAA) and .908 save percentage (SV%) in eight games for the Ducks this season. Khudobin earned his first win as a Duck on Oct. 18 vs. Minnesota and recorded his fifth career shutout in a 1-0 victory on Nov. 7 at San Jose. He appeared in nine games for the Gulls following his Dec. 15 assignment, posting a 4-4-1 record with a 2.60 GAA and .911 SV%.
Acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for defenseman James Wisniewski on June 27, 2015, Khudobin has gone 44-39-8 with five shutouts, a 2.42 GAA and .918 SV% in 99 career NHL games with Anaheim (2015-16), Carolina (2013-15), Boston (2011-13) and Minnesota (2009-11). The 5-11, 203-pound goaltender was selected by Minnesota in the seventh round (206th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft.
