Anton Khudobin

Looks like the kid got called up yesterday. Which also means both Backstrom and Harding will be out due to their injuries/sickness.

http://www.startribune.com/blogs/83505227.html

I think the Wild should consider giving him the start tonight over Dubielewicz. Wade was all sorts of bad against Dallas so it can't really get all that worse. Anton would be going against Edmonton in their second of a back-to-back. This would be a good spot to give him a look. It would allow the Wild to slightly assess if they can afford to move Harding as well.

I also found this from short article humorous/interesting...

Barry Brust is playing hurt after a first-period injury for Houston. His backup tonight is Jeff Crawford, the Aeros' assistant equipment trainer.

And the losing streak will continue at this point. No offense to either Khudobin or Dubie, but I don't foresee them pulling this out

Thanks for the update though bro let the parents go to the game tonight then lol

So you're saying that our AHL goalies don't stand a chance against Edmonton and their AHL goalies?

It is Edmonton remember?

Just seen on Twitter that Russo said Harding is starting now apparently...

Maybe he can make it through warm-ups without getting hurt this time?

No Backstrom and now no Harding ??? Whew!! .. Ok ... [deep breaths] ...

Khudobin starting tonight ... I did saw a little of Khudobin in the AHL All-Star game. He looks a little unorthodox. But, that's what they said about Brodeur at first so who knows.

I'll be at the game tonight. Will I see the start of something big for the Wild? ... or something else?

Really strong game by Khudobin last night, looks like he should have some NHL game, just hasn't had the opportunity because of 2 very good goalies in front of him.

Hey guys, Thrashers fan here. I used to work in the ECHL, and whenever the (now defunct) Texas Wildcatters would come to town, I'd love to watch Khudobin. I've watched him very closely for about 2-3 years of his ECHL career, and I've always been impressed by him. Very quick, very unorthodox. Very reminiscent of Nabokov, at least to me, bot in his very upright stance, and his deceptively fast glove hand. The guys I used to know who worked for the Wildcatters said the Khudobin is the funniest, happiest guy in the dressing room; the anti-typical goalie, if you will.

At any rate, just wanted to stop by and say hi, and give you a little idea about Anton. Hope he shines in his time in Minnesota. I know he will.

The first thing I thought of when he came into the game against Edmonton was that he looked like a smaller version of Nabokov. His stance is almost identical at times.

He's similar to Giguere in that his equipment is HUGE. Holy God, he looks like the Stay Puft Marshmellow man.

The Wild beat writer Mike Russo also got a kick out of him. He looks like a real gamer out there, which I like.

You have alluded to one of the most important attributes of a goalie. Regardless of anything else, size, skill, angles, reflexes, flexibility, speed, agility, etc., a goalie has to be a gamer or a battler. The goalie needs to be the most intense and focused person on the ice. They need to be the one to say, "I am in control of this situation." It's why goalies like Roy, Brodeur are/were so successful in the playoffs and why goalies like Turco aren't.
