Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
The Vancouver native called the incident “an unprovoked attack” and said that he’s following up on with the authorities in his hometown. He also expressed exasperation at the treatment he’s received there over the last few years.
He said he was struck once inside a nightclub, and then outside a nightclub when “he was trying to get food.”
The only “no comment” he gave was when he was asked whether the assailant said anything about him being a member of the Bruins before striking him, but otherwise the B’s power forward was as candid as always.
“I was part of an unprovoked attack on Saturday night where I was punched in the face on two separate occasions," said Lucic, who explained that he did not know his attacker. "There was no reason for him to punch me. From this point forward we’re exploring this in a legal manner. That’s as much as I can say about it right now.
“It sucks to be in that situation, but you’ve got to take ownership of it and that it happened because you were in that situation. We came off a good road trip, and wanted to go out and blow off some steam . . . have a little fun. Unfortunately it ended the way it did, and hopefully it’s not a distraction to the team any further after today.”
