Jets blueliner happy to be home

  • Print

WINNIPEG — Toby Enstrom says that Winnipeg is his home now and that’s why he’s back here, even though NHL players are still locked out.

The Swedish-born Jets defenceman was at the MTS Iceplex again this morning, skating with teammates and other locked-out NHL skaters. He returned to the Manitoba capital last week after a stint in Europe.

"This is my home now," Enstrom said today. " It feels good to be back. I miss the guys, too. To see some of the guys, be practising with them, it felt like a good choice for me."

When the lockout began in September, the 28-year-old blueliner waited a few weeks and then went to Austria to play in Salzburg.

He stayed there only a short time.

"They have a roster-cut deadline so I didn’t want to go there and take somebody else’s job so that made it easy for me make a decision to leave," he said. "I was hoping for the games to get going over here, too, so we’ll wait and see what happens."

Enstrom told reporters this morning that he didn't want to talk about the lockout itself.
