Lucic says that he was the victim of an unprovoked attack while out in Vancouver following the Bruins' 6-2 loss to the Canucks. This would not be the first time Lucic and his family have faced negative treatment in the forward's home city since the Bruins beat the Canucks in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
"I have no reason left to defend my city and the people in my city. I'm disgusted and outraged," he said. "Other than being at Rogers Arena no one will ever see me in Downtown Vancouver ever again."
Lucic said he is following up with authorities in Vancouver about the incident.
In a video posted online by YouTube user “Nick N,” Lucic is seen in an altercation outside of a nightclub in Vancouver. In the video description, it says that the video was taken Saturday night, Dec. 14. There was no confirmation at the time that this incident took place on Saturday.
Lucic was taped cursing and shouting at another individual, with Lucic saying that he had been hit two or three times. There were no punches thrown in the video, and police were seen trying to diffuse the situation. The Vancouver Police would not confirm whether the incident took place, according to the Vancouver Sun.
