Zdeno Chara Signs With KHL Team In Prague

BOSTON (CBS) — With no end in sight for the NHL lockout, Zdeno Chara is looking to Europe.

The Boston Bruins captain signed with Prague-based HC Lev Praha, of the Kontinental Hockey Leauge, according to several reports on Tuesday.

“Close to home in Slovakia, knows guys on the team and has played in Prague before so he is comfortable there,” Chara’s agent Matt Keator told ESPN.com.

Chara, 35, becomes just the latest member of the Bruins to head overseas amid this lockout. Tuukka Rask, David Krejci and Andrew Ference are also playing in the Czech Republic; Tyler Seguin is playing in Switzerland; Dennis Seidenberg is playing in his native Germany; and Rich Peverley is playing in Finland.

Patrice Bergeron also signed with a Swiss team later on Tuesday.
