Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom will play for EC Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian League during the lockout.

It was thought that the Swedish blueliner would return to his native Sweden but alas, that is not to be. Enstrom signed a five-year extension with the Jets in the off-season and the 27-year-old is considered one of the key pieces on the team. He had six goals and 33 points in 62 games during the 2011-12 season after back-to-back 50-plus point seasons, so look for Enstrom to bounce back to elite rearguard production if he is able to play a full season.
