Unsettling news out of Winnipeg on Saturday as Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom was robbed and beaten at an automated teller machine in his native Sweden.

According to Swedish outlet Sport Expressen, Enstrom was assaulted by three men while out for dinner with his family. He had gone to an ATM to take out cash to settle the bill, at which time the trio attacked.

“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.

‘Supposedly, to the best of our knowledge [the attackers] have been apprehended by police. Toby is fine. He received a minor cut above the eye. He’s putting it behind him.”

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.
