Wild call up goalie Anton Khudobin
The Minnesota Wild recalled Kazakh goaltender Anton Khudobin from the minors on Tuesday while backup Josh Harding recovers from an injury. Khudobin was recalled from Houston of the American Hockey League, where he's 4-2 with a 1.77 goals against average in six games. Khudobin was a seventh-round pick in 2004 by the Wild out of Kazakhstan. Harding has unspecified soreness in his lower body and was being held out of Tuesday's practice. Harding has played in two games, with starter Niklas Backstrom playing in nine.
