Mark Flood (born September 29, 1984) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the KHL Medveščak Zagreb of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He has previously played with the New York Islanders and Winnipeg Jets.

Playing career[edit]

Flood was drafted in the sixth round, 188 overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.[1] He played in the ECHL prior to signing a free agent contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets playing for their AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch.[2] On November 26, 2006 Flood was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes organization for defensemen Derrick Walser.[2]

He was not resigned by Carolina and on July 6, 2009 he signed a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Islanders.[3] Flood spent the majority of the season in the AHL. Following a concussion to Islanders defensemen Dustin Kohn Flood was called up to the NHL, making his debut on March 25, 2010 against the Calgary Flames.[4] Flood played 6 games for the Islanders registering 1 assist and a -4 plus-minus rating.[2] During the 2010 offseason, Flood signed a one-way contract with the Manitoba Moose (farm team of the Vancouver Canucks). On July 3 he signed a contract to play for the Winnipeg Jets. He scored his first NHL goal as a member of the Jets against Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils on November 5, 2011.[5]

On July 22, 2012, it was reported that Flood had signed a contract with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Russian Kontinental Hockey League. Flood was a part of the rebirth of the organization following the tragic plane crash that forced Lokomotiv to cancel its 2011-2012 season.[6] In 52 games with Yaroslavl, Flood was a stay-at-home fixture on the blueline, posting 6 points throughout the 2012–13 season.

On July 10, 2013, Flood returned to North America and signed a one-year two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.[7]

Flood returned to the KHL after a single season within the Hurricanes organization in signing a two-year deal with Medvescak Zagreb on June 11, 2014.[8]
