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.

Conn Smythe always said "if you can't lick 'em in the alley, ya can't lick 'em on the ice." She admits she struck him [how unnecessary!], and now she alleges he retaliated. Trish (@ #2 above), when she hit him, that's called "implied consent to mutual battery" in these post-feminist days. And, who ever said anything about beating up on a kid? You're skating on thin ice...

What is it with men that hit women? Over the past few years there are more stories about men hitting women. I hope they lock him up and he gets some jailhouse justice!

I'm a Leafs fan and let me say....he's no All star. Maybe one time in his career he was, but now he seems more of a money pit than an All Star.

As far as hitting women goes....if she hit him first she shouldn't be too upset. Women seem to want a double standard here. It's like that girl from the bachelor show who just walked up and slapped him in the face. You can't do that. If a man did that he would be in jail.

If Komisarek is charged, then I hope the woman is charged too. I'm not for violence against women, but I am against double standards.

Umm I think thats assault from both ends. Although I'm sure her hurt a lot more. You don't want a punch in the face don't hit someone !

What a loser. Yeah she slapped him, but what was he doing holding her up in the air, obviously against her will if she had to slap him to be put down. Secondly a slap and a full-on punch are NOT equal. A loser on the ice AND off, wow.
