Chris Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Bob McKenzie of TSN have confirmed reports that the Bruins have sent Providence Bruins defenseman Jeff Penner and Swedish Elite League forward Mikko Lehtonen to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for minor league goalie Anton Khudobin.
Anton Khudobin was selected by the Wild in the 7th round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. The Kazakhstan native has appeared in 6 NHL games (including 4 this season). He has a 4-1-0 record in the NHL with a .955 save percentage, 1.39 GAA, and 1 shutout. Khudobin (pronounced "Who-Dobin" according to the always reliable Wikipedia) has spent most of the season with the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League posting a 19-12-1 record with a .911 save percentage, 2.58 GAA, and 1 shutout. Khudobin will obviously report to Providence.
