Dallas also signed right wing Blake Comeau to a three-year, $7.2 million contract, right wing Valeri Nichushkin to a two-year, $5.9 million deal and defenseman Roman Polak to a one-year, $1.3 million pact.
Landing Khudobin was a much-needed move in the eyes of Dallas general manager Jim Nill, who was looking for a solid goalkeeper who could spell Bishop and keep the starter fresh.
“Anton is a proven NHL netminder that gives his team a chance to win every time he’s on the ice,” Nill said in a statement. “We look forward to him joining our club and making a positive impact for the next two seasons.”
Khudobin was 16-6-7 with a 2.56 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 31 games (29 starts) for the Boston Bruins last season. He has a career mark of 67-51-16 with a 2.47 GAA and .915 save percentage in 147 NHL games (135 starts) in nine seasons with the Minnesota Wild, Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks in addition to two stints with Boston.
