RALEIGH, N.C. - Goaltender Anton Khudobin and the Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to a $4.5 million, two-year contract.

The team said Tuesday that the deal will pay Khudobin $2 million next season and $2.5 million in 2015-16.

General manager Jim Rutherford says signing Khudobin "helps solidify our team's goaltending situation."

The Hurricanes signed Khudobin to an $800,000, one-year deal last July to back up Cam Ward.

Khudobin is 13-8-0 with a 2.17 goals-against average in 22 games with the Hurricanes and was the NHL's first star for January after his club-record-tying 10 wins in the month.
