May 2: Reign vs. Gulls series news links - LA Kings Insider

A few hits from around the social world for today …

–Gulls starting goalie Anton Khudobin is day-to-day according to Craig Elsten of The Mighty 1090 AM in San Diego, who does play-by-play for the team.

The team’s starting goalie was injured last Saturday’s series-clinching win over Texas on a first-period collision with teammate Brandon Montour. On Sunday, the Gulls officially added goalie Ryan Faragher from ECHL-Utah.

Video of the collision can be found in this video at the 30-second mark:

If Khudobin cannot play in the series opener on Thursday, it would be a huge loss for San Diego. Khudobin has been with the Ducks and Gulls this season and went 5-2 against Ontario.

–According to Sheng Peng from Jewels from the Crown, both Vincent LoVerde and Ryan Horvat were out skating today in red no-contact jerseys. Horvat has not played since he sustained an injury in Game 1 of the San Jose series. Jonny Brodzinski also did not skate.

–Really had fun reading this story from the Fargo Forum (the local newspaper where I went to college!) breaking down the University of North Dakota’s NCAA win. Great read, and some fun tidbits on Paul LaDue in there as well. Enjoy!
