This is not the sort of thing you expect to hear from Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, but Allehanda.se reported that Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom was robbed and assaulted last night, and the Winnipeg Free Press's Ed Tait confirms with an English-language report and update on Enstrom's condition:
Winnipeg Jets defenceman Toby Enstrom was robbed and assaulted in his hometown of Örnsköldsvik in Sweden Friday night but is recovering with only minor injuries.
Swedish website SportExpressen.se first reported the 28-year-old defenceman was beaten by three men and robbed. The Jets became aware of the incident Saturday morning.
"We’ve done some digging through our team security," said Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff Saturday at his media conference in advance of Sunday’s NHL draft in Newardk. "Apparently Toby was out for dinner with his family and went to pick up the cheque and went to the ATM to get some money and was robbed by three people. Supposedly, to the best of our knowledge those people have been apprehended by police. Toby is fine. He received a minor cut above the eye. He’s putting it behind him. I haven’t spoken to Toby, we’re just getting it through our team security person. All indications are it was an unfortunate incident involving him, but he’ll come out of it OK."
