Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic was attacked in a Vancouver night club over the weekend which prompted him to disown his own hometown.

Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic was attacked in a Vancouver night club on Saturday, prompting him to disown his hometown. 

The Vancouver Sun's Harrison Mooney has more details in his Dec. 16 blog:  

"Lucic and his family have already been victimized a few times by moronic Vancouver fans. During the Stanley Cup Final, some idiot Canuck boosters threw food at his grandparents. Shortly after the Final, his family's church in Burnaby was vandalized.

"And on Saturday night, some Vancouverite managed to complete the dumb fan hat trick, allegedly punching Lucic in the head withotu provocation while the Bruins forward was out blowing off some steam after the loss to the Canucks." 

More precisely, Mooney's Vancouver Sun colleague, Denise Ryan, wrote on Dec. 16 that Lucic's grandparents "were showered with peanuts and popcorn while attending Game 1 of the final series" while "hooligans spray-painted male genitalia along with Canucks slogans on St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church in Burnaby" in February 2012. 

Ryan also adds Lucic's girflfriend was previously "flipped off" by a Canucks player's wife for wearing a Bruins jersey inside Rogers Arena. 

On the other hand, ESPN Boston's Joe McDonald reports the most recent attack occurred after the Canucks' 6-2 win over the Bruins on Dec. 14. Lucic told McDonald he was attacked twice -- once inside and once outside the club. The attacker is somebody whom Lucic does not know.

According to the ESPN update, the Bruins forward is "pursuing legal action" and "is in contact with Vancouver police." 

Lucic poured out his sentiments to McDonald and other members of the media at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Ma. on Monday. 

"There was no reason for him to punch me, but he did and that's all I can really say right now. 

"It's something I'm not proud of, but it was part of an unprovoked attack on Saturday night where I was punched in the face on two separate occasions -- like I said, unprovoked. From this point forward, just exploring to pursue this in a legal manner, so that's probably as much as I can say right now.

"Like I said, I was a victim of the attack and did not engage in the attack, as you can see in the video. I showed restraint by not retaliating in a physical manner."

Now that a fan incident of this nature has happened for a third time, Lucic is not very happy with his hometown of Vancouver, per the ESPN report. 

"I have no reason to defend my city and the people in my city. I'm disgusted and outraged that it had to come to something like that. As far as that goes, other than being at Rogers Arena, no one will ever see me in downtown Vancouver ever again."

Steve Conroy of The Boston Herald also asked Lucic if his parents were concerned about what happend on the night of Dec. 14.  

"Just like any parent, they're obviously concerned. They obviously have my back no matter what the circumstance is. They've seen and witnessed me out before and they've seen how I act with a few drinks in me.

"And I think I've been in downtown Vancouver maybe 50 or 60 times and I've never even come close to an altercation, but this one obviously ended up in one."

The 25-year-old Lucic is in his seventh season with Boston. For the current 2013-14 NHL season, he has 11 goals and 13 assists for 24 points, according to ESPN stats

Note: Video below of Lucic's alleged altercation, which was captured by a bystander, features strong language.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
