A Boston College hockey player is out indefinitely after he was assaulted at a Boston restaurant.
The university's athletic department said in a statement Sunday that graduate student Kevin Lohan was the victim of an "unprovoked assault" that happened Friday around 2 a.m.
Kevin Lohan is a cousin of Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan.
Police are investigating. The school did not say what, if any, injuries Lohan sustained.
Police said they responded to the Dominos on Boylston Street in the city's South End, where a woman reported that she and her boyfriend, identified later as Lohan, were standing in line when a group of about six to eight individuals began pushing in line.
Out of no where, one of the individuals pushing people in the line punched Lohan in the face, knocking him to the ground, according to police; the group then fled the scene.
The 6-foot-5, 217-pound defenseman transferred to Boston College after four years at Michigan, where was an assistant captain his senior year.
