The following is a statement from Ray Bourque, issued Sunday, after he was arrested on a drunken driving charge Friday. The statement was issued on his behalf by Cleon Daskalakis, a former Bruins goaltender and his longtime friend:
“For the first time in my life, I find myself in unfamiliar territory. I am not happy about the situation I put myself into on Friday Night. I am a very proud person that accepts the responsibility of my actions and have always accepted being in the media eye. I have used this popularity to try and positively impact as many lives as possible. I am happy that no one was hurt in the accident and thank everyone who has reached out in support of my family and me. Please be patient as I go through this process and respect my family and my privacy. Thank you all for your understanding.
