The Ducks on Tuesday assigned goaltender Anton Khudobin to the San Diego Gulls of the American Hockey League, after he cleared waivers earlier in the day. The move means Frederik Andersen and John Gibson will battle for the Ducks’ No. 1 spot in goal. Khudobin’s departure for the minor leagues also gives the Ducks $950,000 in salary-cap relief. He is owed $2.25 million this season.
Khudobin was 3-3-0 with a 2.70 goals-against average for the Ducks this season.
