Hamilton Bulldog Magnus Nygren's brother robbed in Burlington: report
Nygren has four goals and six assists in 15 games for the Hamilton Bulldogs this season
The brother of Hamilton Bulldogs player Magnus Nygren, who previously claimed Hamilton was a dangerous city, was reportedly robbed in Burlington on New Years Eve.
A Swedish newspaper reported Martin Nygren was visiting his brother, who is currently out of the lineup due to injury, during the holidays. The pair went to a restaurant in Burlington, and while Magnus was inside paying the bill his brother was attacked outside and robbed of his necklace and wallet.
Neither Burlington police nor the Hamilton Bulldogs organization could be reached on Wednesday evening to confirm the story.
Nygren, a top prospect for the Montreal Canadiens, made headlines last September when he called Hamilton the "most criminal city" in Canada in an interview with a Swedish publication. When asked about the comments, Nygren denied making them.
Nygren lived in Burlington during his first year with the team, which was cut short due to an injury. The now 24-year-old Swede left the team early that year after he asked to go home.
Nygren has four goals and six assists in 15 games for the Hamilton Bulldogs this season.
