Welcome to the November 15, 2018 edition of Around the BCHL.
Remember the name Mark Dekanich?
You’d have to be a longtime fan of the BCHL and the Coquitlam Express. Dekanich tended net for the Express during the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons before moving on to a four-year career at Colgate University.
Dekanich went on to a wandering 10 year career that included time in the ECHL (Cincinnati Cyclones/South Carolina Stingrays/Reading Royals) and the AHL (Lehigh Valley Phantoms/Hershey Bears/St. John’s IceCaps/Springfield Falcons/Milwaukee Admirals.
Dekanich even went overseas for a stretch, spending the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons with the KHL’s Madvescak Zagreb.
