Mark Pavelich, a former Rangers center and "Miracle on Ice" team member, was arrested and charged with assault last week after an incident with a neighbor at his Minnesota home.
Pavelich allegedly attacked his neighbor with a metal pole, breaking several bones and bruising a kidney among the injuries, after he believed the neighbor "spiked" his beer, according to the criminal complaint obtained by the Associated Press.
The 61-year-old went to Cook County District Court on Monday, where the judge "ordered a mental competency hearing," according to the report. Bail has been set at $250,000.
Pavelich played his first five seasons in the NHL with the Rangers from 1981-1986. He tallied 133 goals and 185 assists during his 341 games there.
He was also a part of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team that accomplished one of the biggest upsets in sports history, defeating the heavily-favored Soviet Union, 4-3. Pavelich had two assists in the game.
