A number of players have been linked to the Buffalo Sabres, including forward Zach Bogosian, who was the third overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.
However, it appears that his relationship with his girlfriend was never the focus.
The Sabres are in the middle of a playoff run, and Bogosi is a member of their Stanley Cup winning team.
But on Sunday, the Sabres were in Los Angeles to take on the Kings.
He was photographed in Los Vegas, and the Sabres tweeted that he and his girlfriend were headed to Los Angeles.
The tweet has since been deleted, but a screenshot of the tweet is still up.
He tweeted that “we are going to LA.”
The Sabres later released a statement saying that they were in LA to attend to a personal matter.
“Our team and the organization are aware of the matter involving Zach Bogusian,” the statement read.
“As with all matters involving our players, we will take the appropriate action as required.”
The NHL has since confirmed the story.
The New York Post reported on Sunday that Bogosia was spotted at a bar in Los Angeles in late January.
The following month, the NHL said he was fined $5,000 for hitting an opponent.
Bogos was traded to the Sabres in the offseason and has since appeared in 19 games for Buffalo.
His current deal is worth $4.8 million.
He played in 17 games with the Sabres last season, scoring a goal and adding two assists.
He also was suspended for the team’s first game of the season.
“We are aware that Zach Bogo has a relationship with the Buffalo Bills and are aware and investigating a matter involving him,” the team said in a statement to The Associated Press.
“The Sabres organization will not comment further at this time.”
The Buffalo Sabres also tweeted on Sunday afternoon that they are “aware of the situation involving Zach and his wife” and “are in the process of gathering more information.”
It was not immediately clear if Bogosians girlfriend had any comment to make about the incident.
“It is not our place to comment on any private matters, but we will cooperate fully with any investigation, including those involving the Buffalo Buffalo Sabres,” the Sabres said in the statement.
