The Boston Herald’s Laurel J. Sweet reports former Bruins D/coach and Islanders GM Mike Milbury has been charged by Brookline, MA police with assaulting a youth-league hockey player.  No word on whether or not Milbury used a shoe (sorry).

Police today said they have charged Milbury (above) with assault and battery on a child, threats to commit a crime and disorderly conduct in connection with his alleged verbal and physical attack on a 12-year-old boy during a pee-wee exhibition hockey game last Friday night at the town-owned Larz Andersen Rink in Brookline.

The incident allegedly occurred at the end of the Winter Classic between the Boch Blazers for whom Milbury coaches and his son plays forward vs. the Boston Junior Black Hawks. It is alleged that after Milbury’s son and a player for the Black Hawks got into a scrape on the ice, Milbury charged out onto the rink and verbally berated and grabbed and shook the 12-year-old opposing player.

Black Hawks coach Peter Parr has also not responded to several calls from the Herald.
