Canes place G Khudobin on injured reserve
October 14, 2013
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury.
The team on Monday also recalled goalie Justin Peters from its AHL affiliate in Charlotte.
Khudobin was hurt during the second period of a 5-3 loss to Phoenix on Sunday when he skated away from the net to play the puck.
Coach Kirk Muller said after practice Monday that it was ``unfortunate ... to see him go off like that'' but ``hopefully, he's back sooner than later.''
Khudobin signed a one-year deal worth $800,000 in July to back up starter Cam Ward.
Ward was given a regular day off Monday, so equipment manager Jorge Campos played goalie during practice.
