Two NHL players face assault charges after their arrest early Sunday in Manhattan, the New York Post reported.
Sonny Milano of the Columbus Blue Jackets and A.J. Greer of the Colorado Avalanche supposedly assaulted a 28-year-old man in a dispute over a bar bill at 1 Oak, a nightclub at the Chelsea area, police sources told the paper.
The guy complained of pain in his jaw and ribs and suffered injuries to his neck and bicep. Authorities were called by him but said he didn’t need medical attention.
Milano, the No. 16 overall selection from the 2014 NHL Draft, has played just 70 games over four seasons with the Blue Jackets. He’s a free agent, and the Jackets left him a qualifying offer.
The 23-year-old Milano, a left wing, is a New York native who has 24 career points (15 goals, nine assists).
Blue Jackets general director Jarmo Kekalainen issued the following announcement:
“We are aware of the reports involving Sonny. We’re reviewing the situation and will not be commenting further at this moment.”
The Avalanche left wing chosen Greer, 22, from the 2015 draft’s next round. In parts of four seasons, he has appeared in 37 games, including 15 in the 2018-19 season.
He’s six career points (one goal, five assists). His career goal came in this season.
