Wild re-sign backup goaltender Anton Khudobin @NHL

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The Minnesota Wild have re-signed backup goaltender Anton Khudobin to a one-year, two-way contract.

Khudobin is behind Niklas Backstrom and Josh Harding on the organizational depth chart, but the native of Kazakhstan has shown promise with Houston in the AHL and during a brief appearance with the Wild last season.

He was the winner in his NHL debut against Edmonton on Feb. 4, playing 9 1/2 minutes without allowing a goal in relief. He also made 38 saves in a 2-1 win over Philadelphia on Feb. 6 in his first NHL start.

The 24-year-old Khudobin's two-way contract, announced Thursday, means he will make less money when he's in the minors than his NHL salary. Khudobin was the Wild's seventh-round pick in 2004.
