Milbury Talks

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

In an exclusive two-hour interview with the Globe on Saturday morning, former Bruins defenseman Mike Milbury offered his side of the Dec. 9 incident at a Brookline outdoor rink for which he now could face assault charges.

According to the 59-year-old Milbury, he acted only to break up an on-ice altercation between 12-year-old hockey players, one of them his son, which had him briefly restraining the player from the Everett-based club who was skirmishing with his son prior to a shootout contest.

‘‘I want to be clear about a couple of things,’’ said Milbury. ‘‘No one was punched, kicked or assaulted in any way. I know the ‘Mad Mike’ image that I have and all that. I love the game, I’m passionate about it, but I don’t smack kids around. I grabbed the other kid by the sweater to stop a fight and, yeah, I swore at him. That’s it. That’s what I did…”.
