If Blue Jackets forward prospect Sonny Milano hopes to make the team anytime soon, he may want to avoid New York City.

According to the New York Post, Milano was arrested early Sunday morning following a brawl related to a nightclub bill.

Milano and Colorado Avalanche player A.J. Greer reportedly assaulted a 28-year-old man over a bill that had been paid at 1 OAK, a nightclub. The brawl took place at an apartment roughly an hour after the bill was paid.

From Post's report:

The dispute turned physical, and the two players allegedly assaulted the man, who suffered jaw and rib pain and injuries to the neck and bicep. He called cops but refused medical attention.

Milano and Greer were arrested for the attack and brought to the 6th Precinct station house, according to sources.

The two were being charged with assault, the sources said.

The Blue Jackets are apparently aware of the situation and released a statement Sunday.

"The Columbus Blue Jackets are aware of the reports involving Sonny Milano.  We are reviewing the situation and will not be commenting further at this time."
