Winnipeg Jets defenceman Toby Enstrom was robbed and assaulted in his hometown of Örnsköldsvik in Sweden Friday night but is recovering with only minor injuries.

Swedish website SportExpressen.se first reported the 28-year-old defenceman was beaten by three men and robbed. The Jets became aware of the incident Saturday morning.

"We’ve done some digging through our team security," said Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff Saturday at his media conference in advance of Sunday’s NHL draft in Newardk.

"Apparently Toby was out for dinner with his family and went to pick up the cheque and went to the ATM to get some money and was robbed by three people. Supposedly, to the best of our knowledge those people have been apprehended by police. Toby is fine. He received a minor cut above the eye. He’s putting it behind him.
