JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Tobias Enstrom is OK after being robbed in Sweden, according to Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff.
Cheveldayoff said the report from team security was that the Jets defenceman suffered a cut above his eye but no serious injuries when three men robbed him at an ATM after finishing dinner with his family in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden. Those men were arrested, Cheveldayoff said.
“All indications are that it was an unfortunate incident involving him but that he’ll come out of it OK,” Cheveldayoff said.
Cheveldayoff said Saturday morning he had not yet spoken to the 28-year-old Jet. He was relieved the incident wasn’t worse.
“They’re like your kids,” Cheveldayoff said. “When they go away for the summer you’re always worried about different things like that. Toby’s such a good guy and to have it happen to him, is unfortunate, but I think it just goes to show you’re never safe. You always have to be on-guard.”
The native of Nordingra, Sweden, had four goals and 11 assists in 22 games this past season.
