Anton Khudobin(30) Boston / Providence Bruins
Boston re-signed goaltender Anton Khudobin(30), who they picked up in a late season trade last year with Minnesota, to a 2-year contract. Smart move.
It’s understood that the 1st year is 2-way and the 2nd is a 1-way deal. Smart move #2 (for both parties).
I think this guy is the real deal and is going to have a stellar year with Providence, which will make him a candidate for an NHL starter position in ’12/’13.
Also, him wearing no. 30 when picked up in March couldn’t have possibly spelled good things for the similarly numbered Matt Dalton (see previous post).
