Playing career

Khudobin started his career in Kazakhstan, but came over to Russia at a young age and joined the hockey school of Metallurg from Magnitogorsk. The young goalie has been a consistent starter for Russia's U18 and U20 national teams, earning silver medals at the 2005 and 2006 IIHF World U20 Championship. He also became a backup for HC Metallurg before deciding to leave for North America and play in the Canadian junior leagues.[1] During the summer of 2007 he signed a deal with the Minnesota Wild and spent the following season splitting his time between the AHL's Houston Aeros and the ECHL's Texas Wildcatters, earning top ECHL goaltender honors. He made his NHL debut for the Wild on February 4, 2010, replacing injured Josh Harding in a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers. He made his first NHL start two days later on February 6, 2010, stopping 38 shots and allowing 1 in a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers[2]
