Anton Khudobin is on waivers today. Don’t be surprised if the Boston Bruins recall Zane McIntyre from the AHL at some point soon.
Khudobin just didn’t get the job done as the backup behind Tuukka Rask. The 30-year-old from Kazakhstan is 1-5-1 with an .885 save percentage. He had one encouraging performance on Dec. 1, but it wasn’t enough.
If McIntyre gets the call, he’s no sure thing to solve the Bruins’ problem. The 24-year-old has been excellent for Providence, going 10-0-0 with a .950 save percentage. But he allowed 10 goals on 71 shots (.859) in three appearances for the big club.
The Bruins host the Oilers Thursday.
