Ex-Bruin Mike Milbury Grateful After Assault Case Dismissed

A Brookline District Court clerk magistrate ruled Friday that there was not enough evidence to proceed with a trial against former Boston Bruin Mike Milbury, who was involved in an incident on Dec. 9 after a peewee hockey game.

In a press release on Friday afternoon, Milbury said he believed he acted responsibly and that all he was doing was breaking up an altercation between two young boys. Milbury was accused of assaulting a 12-year old hockey player following the boy's hockey game.

"My family and I are gratified that the clerk magistrate found no reason to further investigate the incident at Larz Anderson Park two weeks ago when I separated two 12 year old boys in a Pee Wee hockey game, one of whom was my son," Milbury said.

"I was a coach and supervisor on the ice that day when the scuffle broke out after the game had concluded and the referee had left. I know I acted responsibly to break up an altercation between two young boys in order to prevent potential injury to both. My actions were in no way inappropriate and I would take the same actions today if confronted with a similar situation in the future."
