Many NHL players have gone overseas during the lockout, committing to play for other teams until the lockout ended.
Well, the lockout ended Sunday, and it didn’t take long before Zdeno Chara‘s time with HC Lev Prague was over.
Chara “was pulled out of his KHL game Sunday and told to get ready to head back to Boston,” Joe Haggerty of Comcast Sportsnet reports. Chara will be back in Boston by Tuesday.
In all, 13 Bruins played overseas, but Chara was the only one yet to return to the U.S.
