Dallas Stars: The problems with Anton Khudobin and what to do about it

Dallas Stars goaltender Anton Khudobin quickly became a fan favorite during the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The “Fighting Khazakstaniazn Scorpion” then struggled mightily over the 2020-21 season.

What caused Khudobin’s drop in production and what should the Stars do with the netminder, moving forward?

Anton Khudobin posted a 2.22 GAA with a .930 SV% across 30 games during the Stars 2019-20 Stanley Cup run. He followed up with a 2.54 GAA and .905 SV% over 32 games in 2020-21. One can conclude there were many reasons that resulted in the 35-year old’s struggles last season.
