Draisaitl scores first NHL goal as Oilers beat Hurricanes

History has a way of repeating itself. Leon Draisaitl scored his first NHL goal in his eighth game with the Edmonton Oilers on Friday, just as fellow first-rounder Taylor Hall did on Oct. 28, 2010. The 18-year-old centre scored with a sweeping backhand off a rebound for the winning goal on Carolina Hurricanes goalie Anton Khudobin in a 6-3 Edmonton victory at Rexall Place. While...

Ranking the Metropolitan Division Goalies

It is roughly three weeks into this 2014-15 NHL season but most clubs have made it known where they stand amongst the competition.  The same is true for goaltenders. Expectations are high for many of the Metropolitan Division teams.  These goalies are constantly scrutinized by the media and fans on a game to game basis.  Some are praised while others are cursed.  Let’s take...

Jets snap losing skid with 3-1 win over Hurricanes

It’s amazing what a greasy goal can do to the collective psyche of a hockey club that has been under siege and having trouble denting the twine. After getting blown out to the tune of 13-2 during the past four games and blanked twice, the Winnipeg Jets got a lunch-bucket goal from their captain less than two minutes into the contest and rolled to a 3-1 triumph over the Carolina...

Canes' goalies compete for top job

Cam Ward has long been known as “Wardo” with the Hurricanes. That’s his moniker. And Anton Khudobin? “Maybe it’s because I’m Russian,” he said, smiling, “but I’m always being called ‘Dobi’ or ‘Dubi,’ or sometimes ‘Dobs.’ Sometimes just ‘Anton.’ There are so many ways. I’m OK with that.” But both Ward and Khudobin want to be called something...

Who’s The #1 Goalie In Carolina?

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer, Buried in the avalanche of information that came out of the Carolina Hurricanes’ media day a few weeks ago was one interesting little nugget from new coach Bill Peters. Peters said he’d like one of his goalies to play 60 games, which is pretty standard stuff from coaches who generally prefer to have a No. 1 goalie and a backup...

Former Bruins Goalie Anton Khudobin Accepts Ice Bucket Challenge In Hilarious Video

Former Boston Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin became the latest Carolina Hurricanes player to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of ALS on Monday. The 28-year-old, who was challenged by goaltender teammate Cam Ward, used a few different props in his video. Among the items involved were a cat litter box, goggles, some sort of hat and a life preserver. Props to Khudobin...

Khudobin carries 'Canes to easy home win over Stars

RALEIGH, N.C. -- It's probably not fair to call Carolina Hurricanes goalie Anton Khudobin a backup. He's anything but that. At times, Khudobin has been more popular than mainstay Cam Ward among the fan base, but it's not unlike a backup quarterback at times -- always the most popular option when the main one is struggling. However, Khudobin -- who was given a contract...

St. Louis Still Can’t Score, Khudobin Finally New No. 1 For Canes?

Martin St. Louis (1 A, 2 PIM, +3) was supposed to help continued to struggle for the blue shirts, but managed to tally his third point in nine games as a Ranger. This is not the scoring boost that Rangers GM Glen Sather was hoping for when he moved Ryan Callahan to the Bolts for the veteran scoring monster. Cally, on the other hand, has four points in six games for Tampa. Anton...

Canes hit restart button as Olympic break nears end

It was a team practice for the Carolina Hurricanes but felt more like training camp redux. The Canes, in their first official workout after the NHL break for the Winter Olympics, did a lot of skating Thursday at Raleigh Center Ice. They took a lot of shots. The goaltenders, Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward, got in a lot of work. When the on-ice work ended, there was off-ice work. Head...

It might not be a coincidence that the Carolina Hurricanes' resurgence has arrived at the same time of goalie Anton Khudobin regaining his health.
