Surprise: Desperate Ducks turn to Khudobin on Sunday

The start of the 2015-16 season hasn’t gone the way the Anaheim Ducks would have hoped.

The Ducks, who are 0-3-1 through four games, will look to get into the win column before they embark on a five game road trip, but they will count on an unlikely source to help them get there.

You know what they say, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Instead of turning to number one goaltender Frederik Andersen, head coach Bruce Boudreau will give Anton Khudobin the start in this crucial game.

The decision to start Khudobin is a curious one to say the least. The 29-year-old didn’t exactly impress in his only game as a Duck, as he allowed three goals on eight shots against Arizona on Oct. 14.

He currently sports a 13.97 goals-against-average and a .625 save percentage this season.
