Jan Hrdina, who featured big in Nashville GM Tony Kapfenberger's plan for next season has left the team and signed a deal in Sweden with HV71. It appears that Hrdina was brought to the airport straight away from a team barbecue hosted by Kapfenberger. Teammates said that Hrdina didn't look well when he left to the restrooms, they suspected he took too much of the hot sauces served at the barbecue. When he did not come back to the party after half an hour, team officials went to the restroom and found it locked. When the doors were opened, Hrdina was gone through the window. A neighbour said he saw a guy climbing out of the window and jumping into a big white BMW, the same car player agent Reggie Swingstein is driving. When asked about the situation, GM Kapfenberger said: "I don't know the reasons for Jan's department yet. Apparently he has signed a deal in Sweden - I doubt he can earn more money there. We're waiting for info from Mr. Swingstein." The team awarded Hrdina a multi-year contract extension and expected him to contribute big on the 2nd line next year between wingers Rob Niedermayer and Sean Avery. "Negotiations were tough at the time and now he leaves without saying a word. We do not even know who the guy in the BMW was." Team lawyers were unable for comment, but it seems likely that the team will max out their possibilities in this case. Stay tuned for Mr. Swingsteins comment on this story.
