Medvedev played eight seasons with Kazan,[2] culminating in two Gagarin Cup championships and three KHL All-Star Appearances, before opting to sign his first NHL contract as a 32-year-old on a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers on 20 May 2015.[3][4]

After one season in North America, Medvedev returned to Russia by signing a contract with Avangard Omsk.[5]
