Medveščak Zagreb has announced that Jonathan Cheechoo has re-signed with the team for one more season. This season Cheechoo was named Starter for the KHL All-Star team in January and tallied 38 points in 54 games with Medveščak. Zagreb went to the playoffs in their first season in the KHL, however they were eliminated in the first round against Lev Praha, who is now in the Gagarin Cup Finals facing Metallurg Magnitogorsk. Dmitry Chesnokov published an interview in January of this year which provides a nice glimpse into Cheechoo’s season with Medveščak.
Cheechoo played with the Oklahoma City Barons during the 2012-13 season, when he signed with the team in January 2013 following the NHL lockout and played the remainder of the season.
All the best, Jonathan!
