Václav Nedorost (born March 16, 1982) is a Czech professional ice hockey center currently playing with HC Slovan Bratislava of the Kontinental Hockey League. He formerly played in the NHL with the Colorado Avalanche and the Florida Panthers.

Playing career[edit]

Nedorost was drafted in the first round, 14th overall, by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Drafted out of HC České Budějovice of the Czech Extraliga, Nedorost made his North American debut with Colorado's American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears, in the 2001–02 season. He also appeared in 25 NHL games for the Avalanche during the 2001–02 season, scoring two goals and two assists. Nedorost appeared in 42 more games for the Avalanche in the 2002–03 season.

On July 19, 2003, before the 2003–04 season Nedorost was traded by Colorado, along with Eric Messier, to the Florida Panthers for Peter Worrell and a 2nd round selection.[1] He appeared in 32 games for the Panthers that season.

During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Nedorost went to the Czech Republic to play for HC Bílí Tygři Liberec of the Czech Extraliga. After not playing the following season due to injury, Nedorost then signed for HC České Budějovice in the 2006–07 season before returning to HC Bílí Tygři Liberec the following season.

On May 19, 2010, Nedorost signed a one-year contract with Russian team, Metallurg Novokuznetsk, of the KHL.[2]

Nedorost enjoyed two successful seasons with HC Donbass before civil unrest in Ukraine suspended Donbass' participation in the KHL. Nedorost as a free agent agreed to a one-year contract with Slovakian KHL competitor, HC Slovan Bratislava on August 4, 2014.[3]
