David Zabolotny has with Deggendorfer SC of the Oberliga. Earlier reports suggested that Zabolotny would be moving to a different league, but it looks like he will be staying in the Oberliga, with a new team to the league though. Deggendorfer SC was relegated to the Oberliga for this season after going 14-31-5-2 in the DEL 2 last season. It is clear that the team believes Zabolotny will be vital to their success to return to the DEL 2. In their press release, the team called Zabolotny the new number one. Goaltending problems were the downfall for the team as Jason Bacashihua, formerly of Cracovia Krakow, and Cody Brenner both played poorly in net. The team also said that “David can draw on a lot of experience despite his young age. We are glad that he has chosen us because we also see a lot of potential for him in the future.” (Translated from German via google translate).
