Anton Khudobin, an esteemed goaltender with an impressive 14-season tenure in the National Hockey League (NHL), is preparing to embark on an exciting new chapter in his hockey journey.

As negotiations unfold between Khudobin and HC Lada Togliatti, who are making a return to the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) after a three-year absence, the veteran netminder's agent, Alexander Chernykh, shared the details.

"When Anton made the decision to join the KHL, most teams had already secured their goaltenders. We will now enter discussions with Lada. We have reached an agreement with the club's sports director, Rafik Yakubov, to further address this matter next week,"
Chernykh revealed.

Throughout his remarkable NHL career, Khudobin has plied his trade for several esteemed teams, including the Minnesota Wild, Boston Bruins, Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars, and Chicago Blackhawks. Across 260 games played, he achieved a commendable record of 114 wins, 92 losses, and 33 overtime or shootout defeats. His goals-against average (GAA) stood at an impressive 2.52, accompanied by a notable .916 save percentage and 11 shutouts.

Notably, Khudobin's time with the Dallas Stars proved particularly memorable, as he guided the team to the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, where they narrowly missed out on victory against the formidable Tampa Bay Lightning.

Now, hailing from Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, Khudobin is poised to embark on an exciting new endeavor, aiming to make a significant impact in the KHL while contributing to the resurgence of HC Lada Togliatti in the league.
