Per Katie Carrera:

On the 60th day of the NHL lockout, Jason Chimera became the seventh Capital to head overseas.

Chimera agreed to a deal with HC Chomutov in the Czech Extraliga that will allow him to return to North America whenever the lockout ends. The veteran winger was one of only a handful of players who remained in the Washington area over the past two months and was happy to spend extra time with his wife and two young children.

After weeks of practices, though, Chimera decided it was time to play games again according to his agent, Allan Walsh.
