I have to admit that I'm aware our poor coverage of AHL goalies is an injustice to all our loyal readers. To make it up to you, I will share with a goalie who is hands down the most adorable thing to ever step on the ice.
This is Anton Khudobin. He's from Kazakhstan. He's also so cute it hurts your teeth.
He was given the nickname Dimples by his adoring fans in Houston. This interview with him might give you a hint as to how he earned it.
Did I mention he gives the most wonderful interviews ever?

You may remember him from earlier in the season when, during a call-up, he had a few starts for the Minnesota Wild. During one of those games he was able to shut-out some team called the Vancouver Canucks.
