Anton Khudobin, a seventh-round selection (206th overall) in 2004, hasn’t seen a bulk of playing time in the NHL, but has generally been a reliable goalie when given the chance. This past season he had a paltry .900 SP on a weak Carolina Hurricanes team, but he’s got a .919 career SP to his name.

The native of Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan is entering the last year of his contract on Carolina, along with Cam Ward, and at 29, a starting job for Khudobin could be a part (trade deadline) or full season (free agency, 2016) away.
