Jason Chimera Heads Home

Per Steve Whyno:

Jason Chimera was able to find employment during the NHL lockout in the Czech Republic. But this week The Washington Capitals forward decided to return home to the United States after five games with HC Chomutov in the Czech Extraliga.

Chimera had trouble coping with playing while his family was back home in the U.S. TV NOVA Sport in the Czech Republic was first to report Chimera returning. His agent, Allan Walsh, confirmed that.

Chomutov manager Leo Gudas told TV NOVA Sport: "He wasn't able to live here separated from family, especially his children."

Another reminder of the human element associated with this lockout... and something to think about any time a player gets traded mid-season, really.
