Boston College men’s hockey

Boston College men’s hockey defenseman Kevin Lohan is out indefinitely after he was assaulted without provocation early Friday morning at a restaurant, BC Athletics announced late Sunday via a press release.

Lohan, a 6-foot-5, 217-pound graduate transfer from Michigan, has appeared in 14 games for the Eagles, compiling three assists.

The incident occurred at a Domino’s restaurant on Boylston Street at about 2:30 a.m., the Associated Press reported.

Police responded to an assault and battery call, where Lohan’s girlfriend stated that “a group of about six to eight individuals “began pushing in line” and “out of nowhere” one of the suspects punched her boyfriend in the face and knocked him to the ground,” per a police report acquired by the Boston Globe.

He was was taken to to Brigham and Women’s Hospital where he was treated for a jaw injury, per the Globe’s police report issued by Officer Rachel McGuire, a department spokeswoman.

Lohan played in each of the Eagles’ last two games. The loss is a blow to BC’s defensive depth, as he skated alongside Michael Kim on the third line in those matchups.
