Július Hudáček (born 9 August 1988) is a Slovak ice hockey professional goaltender currently playing for the Severstal Cherepovets in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit]

Hudáček spent several seasons in the Slovak Extraliga, first tending net for HK Spišská Nová Ves in 2003-04, then briefly with Poprad for the 2004-05 season, before returning again to HK Spišská Nová Ves. From 2008-2011, he played primarily with HC Košice, spending some time with HK 2016 Trebišov and HC 46 Bardejov.

From 2011-2013, he played in Sweden, primarily for Frölunda HC.

After a brief stint with HC Sibir Novosibirsk of the Kontinental Hockey League and then with HC CSOB Pardubice of the Czech Extraliga in 2013-14, he returned to Sweden to play for Örebro HK where he played until 2017. At Örebro, he was well-known for post-game on-ice comedic and acrobatic performances after team wins, known as "Hudashows".

After three seasons in Sweden, Hudáček opted for a return to the KHL for the 2017-18 season in securing a one-year deal with Russian club, Severstal Cherepovets, on April 27, 2017.[1]
