Publish date:

Veteran forward Kyle Chipchura is resuming his hockey career in the Kontinental Hockey League.

Chipchura, who played for three NHL teams during his nine-year career, signed a one-year contract to play for HC Slovan Bratislava on Monday.

The 30-year-old is the second player from the Arizona Coyotes to head to the KHL in as many days, as Viktor Tikhonov agreed to terms with SKA St. Petersburg on Sunday.

Chipchura collected four goals, eight assists and 38 penalty minutes in 70 games with the Arizona Coyotes last season.

The 18th overall pick of the 2004 draft, Chipchura scored 31 goals, set up 73 others and had 376 penalty minutes in 482 career games with the Montreal Canadiens, Anaheim Ducks and Coyotes.
