On Monday, Milan Lucic faced the media about the altercation he was in outside a Vancouver nightclub on Saturday, December 14. Lucic said he was punched by someone inside the club and again outside while he was trying to get food.
“There was no reason for him to punch me,” Lucic told Comcast Sportsnet. “From this point forward, we’re exploring this in a legal matter. That’s as much as I can say about it right now.”
Because of the situation, Lucic went on to say he has no reason to defend his hometown of Vancouver and the people here anymore.
“That’s one of the worst parts… that it’s in my hometown,” Lucic said. “Going back to the spray painting of the church and my grandparents, parents and family getting harassed during the Stanley Cup Finals in 2011, and now it’s escalated to the point where I get attacked for minding my own business.”
“I have no reason left to try and defend my city, and the people of my city. I’m done trying to defend the city I’m from. I’m disgusted and outraged that it had to come to that. Other than being at Rogers Arena, no one will ever see me in downtown Vancouver ever again.”
