It’s not surprising that Khudobin wasn’t scooped up, as his price tag is considerable. He carries a $2.25 million cap hit and $2.5 million salary in 2015-16.
The 29-year-old really hasn’t distinguished himself during the past couple seasons, mostly bombing out with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2014-15 and Ducks in 2015-16.
As the OC Register notes, his future with the Ducks organization is a little fuzzy beyond this assignment. It’s reasonable to wonder about his future in the NHL beyond this season, as well.
