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.

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).

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.

I hope he makes out well over there. He seemed like a decent team guy when he was with the Wings.
