Anton Khudobin is expected to be ready for training camp after the Dallas Stars goalie had surgery to fix a nerve issue in his right arm in October.
"He's back to 100 percent and doing well," Stars general manager Jim Nill said Friday.
The NHL has targeted Jan. 1, 2021, as the start date for this season with camps opening in mid-December.
Khudobin, who signed a three-year, $10 million contract ($3.33 million average annual value) on Oct. 9, had surgery two days prior after he felt numbness in two fingers of his right hand during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The 34-year-old was 16-8-4 with a 2.22 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in 30 games (26 starts) for the Stars last season. He helped Dallas reach the Stanley Cup Final, where it was defeated in six games by the Tampa Bay Lightning, with a 14-10 record, 2.69 GAA, .917 save percentage and one shutout in 25 postseason games (24 starts).
