Milan Lucic says pub fight was 'unprovoked attack'

Boston Bruins forward and Vancouver native Milan Lucic says he may pursue legal action after alleged being attacked by another man in downtown Vancouver after the Canucks thumped the Bruins 6-2 Saturday night.

A video posted on YouTube Sunday appears to show Lucic yelling at another man outside a city pub.

In the footage, Lucic claims the man hit him three times, but that's not shown in the video; however, there is plenty of cursing.

Lucic told reporters in Boston Monday that he was minding his own business inside the Vancouver nightclub when he became a target.

According to Joe Haggerty, reporting for Comcast Sportsnet, Lucic said he was the victim of "an unprovoked attack."

Lucic said he was struck once while inside the club and then two times once outside, as he was trying to get food. He said two of the hits were punches to the face.

He told reporters that, following this incident and other fallout from the Bruins' win in Vancouver in the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, he is done trying to defend the city he is from.

"I have no reason left to defend my city and the people in my city. I'm disgusted and outraged," he said, according to Joe McDonald, a reporter with 

"Other than being at Rogers Arena, no one will ever see me in downtown Vancouver ever again," Lucic is reported to have said.

The Vancouver Police Department told CBC News Monday morning it is not investigating the incident.

However, spokesman Sgt. Randy Fincham did confirm that the force responded to an incident at Granville and Nelson streets at 4 a.m. PT Sunday morning, in which an altercation between two men was broken up.

Fincham said police could not confirm whether Lucic was involved, as the force has a policy of not identifying potential victims of crime.
