According to multiple reports, Bruins forward Milan Lucic was arrested Friday after an alleged domestic incident in Boston.
The team released a statement Saturday morning, saying: “The Boston Bruins are aware of the situation involving Milan Lucic Friday evening. Milan is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the team. The organization takes these matters very seriously, and we will work with the Lucic family to provide any support and assistance they may need. We will have no further comment at this time.”
The 35-year-old Lucic is a veteran of 1,177 NHL games and won a gold medal this past spring with Team Canada at the 2023 IIHF World Hockey Championship.
After a four-season stint with the Calgary Flames, he signed with the Bruins as a free agent in July, returning to the city where he helped to raise a Stanley Cup banner in 2011. He has been sidelined recently due to an ankle injury.
