Anton Khudobin won’t be in goal for the Stars on Sunday afternoon against Chicago. He won’t be on the bench either.
Instead, Khudobin will be scratched as the team handles “an internal issue that we’ll deal with internally,” coach Rick Bowness said Saturday afternoon.
Khudobin was not on the ice during the main portion of practice that began at 11 a.m. Saturday, but was on the ice as players began to depart at noon, when he took shots from players on the taxi squad.
Bowness said Jake Oettinger will start against the Blackhawks, and Landon Bow will serve as the backup. It will be Oettinger’s third start of the season (2-0, .898 save percentage, 2.42 goals against average), and Bow’s first game on the active roster. Bow has spent the first eight games of the season on the taxi squad.
