Draft Rankings and Comments:
2004 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
Rank 1: #2
Rank 2: #2
Rank 3: #2
Rank 4: #2
Talent Analysis:
Mostly a butterfly goalie...tries to play a bit of standup at his age level, but mostly butterfly...average glove hand... mobile in the crease and can quickly shift with the play from one post to the other...tends to go down into the butterfly too quickly and loses his mobility...needs to improve his lateral movement once in the butterfly
Back In Russia:
A product of the Metallurg Magnitogorsk hockey system. 2003-04 season: Anton Khudobin has spent most of the season practicing with Metallurg’s Super League club’s the squad’s third string goalie. He also started in net for Metallurg in a preseason game, where he was lit up by the strong Lada squad, but still looked impressive and mature for his age. On Russia’s 1986 DOB squad, Khudobin spent most of the season competing with a talented goalie, Ivan Kasutin, who before the 03-04 season was widely recognized as the more talented of the two young goaltenders. However, after spending the 02-03 season as a backup, Khudobin managed to wrestle the starting job away from Kasutin in the final tournament before the U18 WJC and delivered a solid performance at the U18 World Junior Championships, getting better as the tournament went on. Please refer to the U18 WJC review for a detailed evaluation of Dmitri Shitikov’s performance at that tournament.
NHL Outlook:
Anton Khudobin is eligible for the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. The young goaltender significantly boosted his draft position with a solid performance at the last two U18 international tournaments. Khudobin is not one of the goalie prospects available in this year’s draft, but he has potential and is worth a mid round pick.
RussianProspects Draft Projection: Fifth round pick
