Report: Ex-Wild, Preds d-man Blum signs in KHL


Sounds as though Jonathon Blum is headed overseas.

Blum, a former first-round pick that’s spent time with Nashville and Minnesota, has reportedly agreed to join KHL club Admiral Vladivostok, per Sport-Express.

The signing was also reported by Russian news outlet R-Sport.

Taken 23rd overall in 2007, Blum spent the majority of his pro career within the Preds organization until he was cut loose following the lockout-shortened ’13 campaign.

After catching on with Minnesota, he appeared in just 19 games over two years with the Wild, spending the majority of his time in AHL Iowa.
