The Ducks have recalled goaltender Anton Khudobin
and forward Chris Wagner
from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Khudobin, 29 (5/7/86), has 3-3-0 with one shutout, a 2.70 GAA and .908 SV% in eight games with Anaheim this season. The 5-11, 203-pound goaltender 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.
Acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for defenseman James Wisniewski on June 27, 2015, Khudobin posted a 19-7-3 record with a 2.40 goals-against average (GAA) and .922 save percentage (SV%) in 30 games with the Gulls this season. In his last 20 AHL game, he went 15-2-2 with a 2.22 GAA and a .930 SV%. Khudobin led San Diego in wins, GAA, SV% and appearances, while ranking tied for sixth among AHL leaders in SV%.
Selected by Minnesota in the seventh round (206th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft, 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).
Wagner, 24 (5/27/91), has scored four goals (4-0=4) with 26 penalty minutes (PIM) in 37 games with the Ducks and Avalanche this season. The 6-0, 195-pound forward began the 2015-16 campaign with Anaheim before being claimed on waivers by Colorado on Nov. 15. Wagner was claimed on waivers again by Anaheim and subsequently assigned to San Diego on Feb. 25. He scored his first four career NHL goals with the Avalanche, including his first two in consecutive games on Nov. 25 vs. Ottawa and Nov. 28 vs. Winnipeg.
Selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Wagner collected 6-4=10 points with a +1 rating and 22 PIM in 15 games with San Diego this season.
