An alleged argument over a Manhattan nightclub bill landed two NHLers in handcuffs early Sunday morning, according to a report from the New York Post.

The Post reported that both Sonny Milano, a forward for the Columbus Blue Jackets, and A.J. Greer, a Colorado Avalanche forward, were taken into custody after an alleged fight between the pair and a 28-year-old man at a Greenwich Village apartment in Manhattan.

According to the Post, the two players attacked the man, who “suffered jaw and rib pain” and long with “injuries to the neck and bicep.”

Both players have been charged with assault.

The Blue Jackets released a statement on 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.”

The Avs had not released a statement as of Sunday morning.

Milano played eight games for the Blue Jackets last season, scoring a goal. Greer, meanwhile, had one assist in 15 contests with the Avs.
