Milan Lucic, the Boston Bruins forward, faced more adversity on Friday, receiving news that suggests his return to the Bruins may be in jeopardy.

The setback comes in the aftermath of an alleged domestic violence incident involving Lucic and his wife. Charges of assault and battery were filed against Lucic, leading to his appearance in court on Friday. The brief court session, conducted via a zoom call, informed Lucic that he is set to face a jury trial on February 16th, 2024.


The incident leading to Lucic's arrest occurred in November, prompted by a 911 call from his wife claiming he had attempted to choke her. Upon arriving at the scene, an officer noted redness on the alleged victim's chest but received a denial when questioning her about Lucic attempting to strangle her during the argument.



The details surrounding Lucic's legal situation are expected to unfold over the next month, creating anticipation for a resolution. Despite the ongoing legal proceedings, the Bruins remain committed to Lucic's one-year deal, carrying a $1 million average annual value and cap hit for this season.

As the Bruins navigate this challenging situation, Lucic's future with the team hangs in the balance, adding uncertainty to an already complex narrative.
