Mark Dekanich Autographed Card

When the Nashville Predators drafted Mark Dekanich in the fifth round (146th overall) in 2006, the idea was that he'd be NHL-ready after he finished university - he played for the Colgate University Raiders for four seasons - and spent a couple of seasons in the AHL; after suiting up for a game in 2010-11, the thought was he may be ready to back up Pekka Rinne.

Unfortunately, 2011-12 was the year where he started switching teams on a yearly basis, save for the two years he spent with the KHL's Croatian team, Zagreb Medvescak, a relationship that did not end well:

This year, he's suiting up for the ECHL's Reading Royals, part of the Philadelphia Flyers organization. He split last season between the AHL's Hershey Bears and the ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays in the Washington Capitals organization.

He signed card #650 from Panini's 2011-12 Score Rookies And Traded set and Hot Rookies sub-set in blue sharpie with his number (31) tagged at the end, when he was with the St. John's IceCaps in 2012-13:
