After Tomas Kaberle was bought out by the Montreal Canadiens earlier this summer, many wondered where the veteran blue liner would wind up. Looks like the answer to that is Europe.
Czech website Sport.cz reports Kaberle is close to a deal with the KHL’s Dinamo Minsk.
Kaberle has spent the past 14 seasons in the NHL, mostly with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ever since being dealt by the Leafs to Boston in 2011, he’s been on a roller coaster of emotions.
While he didn’t play a lot in Boston, he helped them win a Stanley Cup that season. Following that he signed a four-year deal with Carolina that saw the Hurricanes deal him to Montreal soon into it after not blending in well with the team.
Now Kaberle appears set to join a new league where, perhaps, he can land back on his feet once again at age 35.
