Boston Bruins star winger Milan Lucic – who was born in East Vancouver and raised in the city – was involved in an altercation in downtown Vancouver on Saturday night, after his Bruins lost 6-2 to the Canucks at Rogers Arena.

The video (below) shows Lucic in the middle or at the end of an altercation with someone as the two yells threats back and forth – the footage was shot outside a nightclub in Vancouver, on Granville Street.

Lucic can be heard yelling, "Do you know who you're f***ing with, motherf***er? Do you know who you're f***ing with?" Another man is heard in the background saying, "Milan Lucic is beyond good right now."

In the video, Lucic also tells police he was hit twice, then says he was hit three times, then tells police to take quotes from "all the witnesses" around him.

(The video was posted to YouTube on Sunday by user Nick N and now has over 86,000 views.)

On Monday, according to Comcast's Joe Haggerty, Lucic swore off returning to his hometown in anything considered a social setting:

In 2011, Lucic won the Stanley Cup with Boston in Vancouver, after his Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 in a Game 7 that preceded the now infamous Vancouver Riots.

In February, 2012, Lucic's family's church – St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox in Burnaby, B.C. – was vandalized and graffiti'd with the words, "(Expletive) Milan Lucic Go Canucks Go" along with the image of a penis and testicles.

Lucic attended Killarney high school in Vancouver and played his junior with the Coquitlam Express of the BCHL (from 2004 to 2005) and won a Memorial Cup with the WHL's Vancouver Giants in 2007.

Lucic played two full seasons for the Giants, from 2006 to 2007.
