NHL Lockout 2012: Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara Latest Loss to Boston

Remember when everyone was excited for the Bruins to go play in Prague a couple years ago? Well, this is kind of like that, except it's just Bruins captain Zdeno Chara heading over there, and he won't be playing in a spoked-B jersey-- he'll be playing for the KHL until the lockout is over.

Announced by his agent earlier this afternoon, one the Boston's favorites is following in the footsteps of his teammates, and is lacing up his skates closer to home.

"He has friends there, and it's within hours of his home in Slovakia and it's a great hockey city," agent Matt Keator said.

He will be playing with the Lev Praha (Prague Lions), and you can bet they'll be okay with the 6'9" defenseman joining their team.

Chara is now the sixth Bruins player to head overseas. This is all on the brink of the NHL announcing the cancellation of the first regular season games.
