Milan Lucic is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the Bruins after an undisclosed incident
The Bruins in a statement released Saturday did not provide any details about the incident other than to say the organization is aware of the situation and “takes these matters very seriously.” The team said it would work Lucic’s family to provide any support and assistance needed.
Messages sent to Boston Police and Lucic‘s agent seeking information were not immediately returned.
Lucic, 35, is veteran of over 1,300 NHL games with the Bruins, Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames. He won the Stanley Cup with Boston in 2011 and is back with the team after signing a one-year free agent contract last summer worth $1 million with $500,000 in possible additional incentives.
The Vancouver native has not played since Oct. 21 because of injury.
The Bruins, who host Montreal on Saturday night, said they would have no further comment.
