Zagreb-based ice hockey club Medvescak, who will become the first Croatian team ever to play in KHL league, which outside the American hockey league is the strongest league in the world, have made their first signing as they look to bolster their squad.

Dekanich, who is a goaltender, made his NHL debut for Nashville Predators in 2010 before joining the Winnipeg Jets in 2012. Dekanich was most recently with AHL side the St John’s Icecaps.

“Mark is a very good goaltender who also has Croatian ancestry. He is extremely happy that he has an opportunity to play in Zagreb for Medvescak,” said Medvescak Director of Sport Aaron Fox.
