Former NHL player and current NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury is facing charges of assault and battery on a 12-year-old youth hockey player, WCVB-TV reported Friday. Milbury, 59, who coaches youth hockey in the Boston area, is reportedly accused of assaulting a player on an opposing team last week in Brookline, Mass. Milbury is charged with assault and battery on a child. Milbury played 12 years as a defenseman for the Boston Bruins until 1987, then went onto a coaching and front office career. He coached the Bruins for two seasons in the late 1980s, leading the team to a Stanley Cup appearance in 1989. Milbury was head coach of the New York Islanders from 1995-99. He was fired as Islanders general manager in 2006. Milbury has become one of the NHL's most recognizable broadcasters, working on NBC and Versus telecasts and appearing on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's "Hockey Night in Canada."
