According to uber-agent Allan Walsh, Jason Chimera has agreed to terms with Czech team HC Chomutov.
Chimera becomes the seventh Caps player to sign in Europe for the lockout, joining Nicklas Backstrom, Marcus Johansson, Brooks Laich, Michal Neuvirth, Alex Ovechkin, and Wojtek Wolski, the eighth to sign with other teams, counting Joey Crabb in the ECHL, and the second to sign in the Czech top division with Neuvirth. Chimera is the second NHLer to head to Chomutov, joining Chicago Blackhawks center Michael Frolik and ex-Caps defenseman Milan Jurcina.
The 6'2", 205-pound left-winger spent the 2004-05 lockout with HC Varese of the Italian Serie A, recording 13 points in 18 games.
Here's hoping his stay with Chomutov is a short-lived one.
