Fantastic day for Croatian ice hockey with the news that Zagreb’s Borna Rendulić has signed a million dollar deal with NHL club Colorado Avalanche…
Rendulić (22) has penned a 2-year deal with the Colorado side reportedly worth 1.2 million USD. Playing in the best ice hockey league in the world is a dream come true for the former Medveščak player.
“This really is a dream come true, but just the first part of the dream. Throughout the years, I was aware of the continuous Colorado interest and I was in touch with the NHL agents. I have always believed this moment will come and I had no doubts when the opportunity arose. I was overjoyed. Now, there is a difficult summer ahead, I will prepare myself with my personal trainer Jurica Franjković. My goal is to make it to the team and play in the NHL – I do not want to be just another passer-by”, Rendulić, who was the top scorer in Finlands top division last season, told KHL.hr.
