NHL Star Accused of Punching Woman in Nightclub

1/22/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Toronto Maple Leafs all-star Mike Komisarek is on thin ice with the LAPD -- after the hockey player allegedly punched a woman in the face at an L.A. nightclub earlier this month ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the 28-year-old defensive powerhouse was named in a police report filed by a woman who claims the whole thing went down after Komisarek decided to lift her up in the air at a Hollywood nightclub.

We're told the woman claims she demanded Komisarek put her down -- but he refused -- so she slapped him in the face.

The woman claims Komisarek immediately set her down ... and then punched her in the face, causing her to bleed. 

The woman claims Komisarek left the club ... so she went to the cops. We're told investigators are hoping to speak with the NHL star as soon as they get the chance.

So far, no comment from Komisarek's camp.

What's the problem here? She hit him first, he retaliated, absolutely nothing wrong with that. Women need to realize you can't have it both ways, claiming you want equality with men and then call "feeble woman" at your convenience. That being said, dudes that beat women unprovoked are pieces of **** and should be dragged out into the street by other men and shown what it's like to fight fair.

Wow, a dude punching a woman in the face, sounds like a classy guy. I hope he knows that it was a 5 million dollar punch in the face. Bets are lady punched will sue,Im guessing, as well she should. Id take a punch in the face for 5 million......

First sign of aggressive play all year for him and it happens with a chick. He's way overpaid, Leafs should deal him elsewhere.

One Of Newton's laws of motion:

Third law: The mutual forces of action and reaction between two bodies are equal, opposite and collinear. This means that whenever a first body exerts a force F on a second body, the second body exerts a force −F on the first body. F and −F are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. This law is sometimes referred to as the action-reaction law, with F called the "action" and −F the "reaction". The action and the reaction are simultaneous.

Everyone should remember this when they are about to hit someone. Not everyone will turn the other cheek.

Worst article ever. I'm a Leafs fan, he;s anything but a powerhouse. This american d-bag rep's the Leafs horribly on the ice and now apparently off the ice. If this gets him removed from our team Im all for it. What an arse.

He refused to put her down, like he put down the Montreal Canadiens offer. I hope he rots in jail and chokes on a massive ****. You don't **** with Montreal fans, ever. Ya ****in' traitor!

Mike is 6'3 245 if he really punched her in the face id say she'd be in a coma. This girl is full of **** and just needs some attention. Pet her on the head give her a lolly pop and tell her to go the F home.

Safe to say that the girl looked nothing like Milan Lucic, Komisarek would never have fought her.

I'm from Toronto and his article is inaccurate about him being a star. He is a far from star. He shouldn't even be in the NHL. He is a pylon and according to this report and an idiot.

the most offensive thing about this story is that TMZ called him a defensive powerhouse. He is easily the most overpaid player in the league (besides Yashin) and probably in the top 10 worst defensemen in the league.
