Mike Milbury Charged with Battery and Assault of a 12-year Old, Wussification Suspected (UPDATED with info from NBC and CBC)

I… I can’t believe I’m writing this. I feel like someday top online criminal justice programs are going to learn about this and students are going to be embarrassed, especially the ones who double has hockey fans. Assault may only be a misdemeanor, however those in class know that the age difference and level of prestige of the perpetrator will make this a more severe crime.

From WCVB in Boston:

A former Boston Bruin and current TV analyst has been charged with assault and battery on a child.

Michael Milbury, who currently works as a hockey analyst for Versus NHL, was accused of assaulted a 12-year-old youth hockey player at the Dexter School Ice Rink in Brookline last week.

Milbury is an assistant coach of a local hockey team, and the alleged victim is a player from an opposing team.

Milbury played 12 seasons for the Bruins and was head coach for one season.

UPDATE: NBC’s statement:

“We are aware of the story and are gathering the facts. We will not have any further statements until we know more information.”

UPDATE: Just spoke to a CBC representative, who told me similarly that they will continue to gather information before making a decision regarding Milbury. Milbury only has one week left with the network before going exclusively to NBC.

    WHAT?! You can’t be serious. Come on Mike, what you thinking?

  2. Chris S says:

    Whoa. Do you think he’ll lose his jobs on CBC and NBC?

  3. Colton says:

    apparently its because his son was getting into a scrap with another boy and he came onto the ice and verbally berated the young boy and ‘shook’ him.

    I don’t think it’s that bad. 12 year olds shouldn’t be fighting…

  4. Bubba says:

    Did he beat the kid with his shoe?

  5. JASON says:

    finally change will happen at NBC…no more Milbury silly rants….

  6. Eddie says:

    Wait and see. Let’s not jump to conclusions, maybe he was defending his kid. Although, it doesn’t look good.

    In this day and age you can’t grab a kid or yell at him. You can only give him a trophy and tell him how great he is. This is why you either have to be crazy or a pedophile in order to want to get involved in youth sports

    • If there was a thumbs down button on this site, I’d use it on this comment. Are you saying its okay to verbally and physically abuse children?

      I’m not crazy or a pedophile, but I think I could coach a team without abusing players.

  8. kevin says:

    Should have smacked the little dweeb…the kid is a punk and will be a problem for society to deal with later. Probably from a fatherless home and the mother is completely clueless on how to raise a son………..
