Former Winnipeg Jets defenceman Derek Meech has signed to play with Dinamo Minsk of KHL.


Meech was an unrestricted free agent this off-season.


In 144 career NHL games, Meech scored four goals and 17 points.


The five-foot-11, 200-pound blue-liner was originally drafted by the Red Wings in the seventh round of the 2002 NHL Draft.

I always hoped he'd turn out to be the next Mathieu Dandenault.




According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Good luck in the KHL it will be a huge culture shock for him, so hopefully he can make enough money there and go to one of the nicer leagues in europe after that (Sweden or Switzerland).

Meech a #1?

In the KHL? Probably

I bought some Maple Lea Tea.  It cost a fortune and didn't come with a Cup.

I think his game will translate well to the KHL.  He was always a good skater, and with all that time and space he might make a difference for his team.  Good luck to him.

Whatever dude, I've actually been to Russia and it's awesome over there.  Obviously I wouldn't want to live there for peanuts, but if you're a millionaire, that place is like a god send.  Meech will have a killer time there with all the black market champagne, caviar, and beautiful blonde women that money can buy.  And with the exchange rates as they are, his salary will buy a TON of champagne, caviar, and women.  I envy Derek Meetch.

Always liked Meech. Got to see him quite a bit here in St John's the past 2 years, great guy. Wish him only the best.

He seemed like a good kid.  He got his cup, and he gets to do what he loves for a living.  Can't beat that.


I wish him nothing but happiness.

Money on the board!  Current total: $7

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

At least now we can rest easier that Holland won't sign him.

I hope he makes out well over there. He seemed like a decent team guy when he was with the Wings.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.
