Veteran NHL defenseman Steve Montador is off to the KHL.

Croatian KHL club Medvescak Zagreb announced they’ve signed the 10-year NHL veteran to a new deal.

Last season Montador had a rough go of things as he struggled with concussion problems and was later sent to the AHL. He wasn’t around to help the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup but he was part of the committee of players who negotiated with and against the owners during the lockout.
