Michael Glumac (born April 5, 1980) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for Croatian hockey club KHL Medveščak in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He is of Serbian descent.

Playing career[edit]

Prior to turning pro, Glumac played hockey at the Miami University in Ohio from 1998–2002. During the 2002–03 season, he was named to the ECHL All-Rookie Team as a member of the Pee Dee Pride Mike Glumac also won the Reebok Hockey Plus Performer Award.

Glumac was undrafted, and signed his first professional contract with the St. Louis Blues on June 29, 2004. After spending a good portion of three seasons with St. Louis' two AHL affiliates Worcester IceCats and Peoria Rivermen. He finally got his big chance on January 3, 2006 against the Calgary Flames. There, he recorded his first NHL point - an assist.

Glumac signed a contract with the Montreal Canadiens on July 16, 2008 and was sent to affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL. In July 2010 it was announced that Glumac had joined the Kassel Huskies of the German Deutsche Eishockey-Liga on a try-out.[1] However due to Kassel unexpectedly folding he was released and signed to another try-out with the Straubing Tigers. Unsuccessful with the Tigers, Glumac moved on to his third DEL club, Alder Mannheim, and on October 12, 2010, secured a one-year contract.[2]

After leading Mannheim with 17 goals in the 2010–11 season, Glumac was re-signed to a one-year deal on May 11, 2011.[3]

On May 24, 2013, after three seasons with Mannheim, Glumac joined newly promoted KHL Medveščak on one-year contract.[4]

Personal information[edit]

Mike's late grandfather, Mike Glumac I, was inducted to the Niagara Falls Sports Hall of Fame in 1992. He too, was a successful local hockey, softball player, golfer and curler.[citation needed] His great grandparents, Eli and Florence (Cvjeta), were renowned in the Niagara Falls Serbian community.[citation needed] The name Glumac literally translates to "actor" in the English language.

He might be of mixed Serbian-Croatian descent since Cvjeta is a name mostly used in Croatia and doesn't correspond with Serbian "ekavica"
