Scott Gomez, the All-Star Rangers center, has been taken to a hospital after an altercation in a bar. The incident occurred at 3:20 a.m. Friday in Greenwich Village, according to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.

The Rangers confirmed the leave, saying in a statement: “There has been a personal matter that has necessitated Scott Gomez taking a leave of absence from the Rangers. The organization is committed to supporting Scott as he deals with this matter, which it regards as a personal one.”

Gomez, 34, had signed a five-year, $40 million contract in July to rejoin the Rangers, who had released him in April 2015.

Gomez is one of the most decorated Rangers of the last generation. He holds the team record for most points in a career and in the playoffs. He is second all-time in games played by a Rangers center, behind only Mark Messier.

He was present at a nightclub late Thursday night. Public records show that he lives in Greenwich Village. He attended the Harvard commencement ceremony, where he was in the graduating class of 2011. He is listed as a lecturer in Harvard Law School’s studio program, teaching a creative writing course in 2015.
