Milan Lucic is saying goodbye to the Boston Bruins indefinitely.
On Saturday morning, the Bruins released a statement regarding an alleged domestic incident involving Lucic on Friday evening.
“The Boston Bruins are aware of the Milan Lucic situation on Friday evening. Milan is taking an indefinite break from the team. The organization takes these matters very seriously and we will work with the Lucic family to provide any assistance and support that may be necessary. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Lucic returned to the Bruins as a free agent in July. He was originally drafted by the B’s in 2006 and played eight seasons for Boston from 2007 to 2008 until being traded to the Los Angeles Kings in June 2015.
Lucic played in the first four games of the season, but he has missed the last 11 games after suffering a sprained ankle injury in a win over the Kings on Oct. 21.
The Bruins’ next game is Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden.
