Radim Bičánek (born January 18, 1975) is a Czech professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for HC Karlovy Vary in the Czech Extraliga. He was drafted in the second round, 27th overall, by the Ottawa Senators in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

After playing two seasons in the Ontario Hockey League for the Belleville Bulls, Bičánek made his National Hockey League debut with the Senators in the 1994–95 season, appearing in six games. He went on to spend the entire 1995–96 season with the Senators' American Hockey League affiliate, the Prince Edward Island Senators. Bičánek appeared in 21 more NHL games with Ottawa in the 1996–97 season.

After appearing sparingly for the Senators during the 1997–98 and 1998–99 seasons, Bičánek was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks on March 12, 1999, in exchange for a pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. The Blackhawks left him unprotected for the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft, allowing him to be selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets for their inaugural season.

During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Bičánek returned to the Czech Republic to play for HC JME Znojemští Orli. After five seasons in Znojmo he moved to HC Kometa Brno.[1]
