What began as eating dinner out with family quickly became a scary situation for Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom on Friday.
Enstrom was reportedly assaulted and robbed by three men after he had gone outside the restaurant to an automated teller machine to take out cash for the bill. The incident occurred overseas in Enstrom's home country of Sweden.
“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,” Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff told the Winnipeg Free Press.
Enstrom reportedly suffered a minor cut above his eye during the attack, and was taken to a nearby hospital, but was otherwise unharmed.
The suspects have since been found and arrested by police.
Enstrom, 28, has spent his entire NHL career with the Thrashers/Jets organization. Last July, he inked a five-year, $28.75 million contract extension that will keep him with the club until 2018.
"They're like your kids and when they go away for the summer you're always worried about different things like that," Cheveldayoff said, according to the Free Press. "Toby's such a good guy and to have it happen to him is unfortunate, but it just goes to show you're never safe and you always have to be on guard."
