Milano, Greer arrested on assault charges

Milano, Greer arrested on assault charges

Two NHL players face assault charges following their arrest early Sunday in Manhattan, the New York Post reported.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are not commenting on reports that forward Sonny Milano has been arrested and charged with assault in NY. Greer were arrested early Sunday for a brawl over a nightclub bill in New York City, police sources told the New York Post's Tina Moore and Ruth Weissmann. Angered, the duo reportedly fought the man who promised them a lower tab and left him with injuries to his neck, bicep, jaw and ribs.

A 28-year-old man said he was injured when the dispute turned into a physical altercation, Nasser said.

The Blue Jackets released a statement about Milano, saying they're aware of the situation and will be reviewing the facts without further comment. The pair were reportedly arrested and brought back to the 6th Precinct station house, where they were being charged with assault.

Milano was a first-round draft pick of the Blue Jackets in 2014. Both players are restricted free agents, and this could both scare off potential suitors and lessen their bargaining power against their current teams. Greer, 22, was a second-round pick by the Avs in 2015. He appeared in 27 games at the American Hockey League level.

He has six career points (one goal, five assists).
