NHL Goalie Veteran Is Leaving North America For Another League

Throughout his NHL career, Anton Khudobin has primarily played as a backup goalkeeper but he hopes to start somewhere else.

Anton Khudobin has played in the NHL for 14 years and has consistently been a solid player. Khudobin has demonstrated his ability to compete at the highest level with a lifetime SV% of.916 and a GAA of 2.52.

Khudobin is mostly a backup who has never played more than half of a season because of injuries, although he has demonstrated the capacity to be reliable.

A Kazakhstan native, Khudobin has many ties to the KHL and Russia.

Given how important NHL experience is at that level of hockey, Khudobin’s skills might be needed by Lada, a VHL (Russian AHL) team headquartered in Russia.

Khudobin doesn’t want to put his skates away just yet, but if he wants to advance in his career, he will need to succeed in the VHL.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
