An NBC spokesperson told Richard Deitsch of SI.com that former Bruins player and current NHL analyst Mike Milbury will not appear on the network while addressing allegations that he assaulted a 12-year-old hockey player who was in a fight with his son during a game in Brookline last week.
"In our discussions with Mike, we both came to the conclusion that he should remain off the air while focusing on his affairs," the spokesperson told Deitsch (in comments relayed via twitter).
Milbury, through lawyer David Rabinovitz, denied the allegations of criminal wrong-doing.
"Mike Milbury denies any allegations that there was an assault of any kind," said the statement (as reported by multiple outlets). "He simply intervened in an altercation between his son and an opposing player. No one was struck, no one was injured and no one was threatened."
