Boston Bruins star Milan Lucic was caught on tape in an altercation that allegedly took place outside a Vancouver nightclub on Saturday night.
A grainy video posted to YouTube shows the Vancouver-born forward trading barbs with an unidentified man before the police intervene.
It is not clear where the exchange took place.
UPDATE: Milan Lucic told Boston radio station WEEI.com that he is pursuing legal action after being punched in the face twice in downtown Vancouver on Saturday night. The incidents occurred once inside a nightclub and once outside, and each from the same person, he said. In an interview he said he was disgusted with his hometown, especially after incidents in which his Serbian Orthodox church was spray-painted and his family was harassed during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
The Stanley Cup-winning player can be heard telling police that the man threatened him and hit him twice, then corrects himself to say he was hit three times.
Another voice in the video can be heard saying, "Milan Lucic is beyond good right now."
Lucic then instructs the police to take note of all the witnesses at the scene.
Vancouver police spokesperson Sgt. Randy Fincham told Global News that he was unaware of the incident.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story attributed some quotes to Milan Lucic that could be heard in the video. Those quotes have since been attributed to another individual in the video, and have been removed from the story.
