Bornon May 10, 1986 in North Vancouver, British Columbia, this goaltender was astandout award-winning prospect in the Eastern College Athletic Conference atColgate University before being drafted by the Nashville Predators 146thoverall in 2006. His name, Mark Dekanich. After finishing his degree and thushis playing career with Colgate, he transitioned to the pros in 2008-09,appearing in 30 games for the Milwaukee Admirals, recording a 2.09GAA, and a0.923% save average. The following season he continued his epic numbers withthe Admirals, as well as an unreal 0.981% save average in two games in theECHL. As the starter for the Admirals in 2010-11, he once again posted numbersjust slightly above a 2.00GAA, and a 0.931% save average, but like all tales inthe collection, the moment happened. On December 18, 2010 against the LosAngeles Kings, Mark Dekanich was put in net in relief of Anders Lindback whohad given up three goals on only nine shots. Dekanich played the remainder ofthe game and he stopped 22 of 25 shots in the team's 6-1 defeat. He did not getto play in any additional games beyond that. He was signed the next year byColumbus, however, he was limited to only five games in the AHL the followingseason. He played one additional season in the AHL in 2012-13 after he wassigned by the Winnipeg Jets. He then made the jump over to the KHL for twoseasons before making his way back to North America. He played the majority ofthe 2015-16 season with South Carolina of the ECHL, where he was back tofamiliar form, recording a 0.925% save average, as well as a great 2.16GAA. Heappeared in one AHL game with the Hershey Bears. For the 2016-17 season, hejoined the Reading Royals of the ECHL. As his career continues, it is too soonto post career numbers as he may yet make another appearance in the big league.
