Carolina Hurricanes goaltending prospect Jeremy Helvig was detained by police in Orlando on Thursday morning on suspicion of battery.

The public record specifies dating violence in relation to the battery.

Hurricanes president and general manager Don Waddell released the following statement Thursday afternoon.

The 22-year-old goaltender was recently reassigned to the Hurricanes’ ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Swamp Rabbits.

Greenville visited the Orlando Solar Bears on Wednesday night, where Helvig started and earned the win.

The 2016 fifth-round pick played 72 career games in the ECHL and made two appearances with the Charlotte Checkers, Carolina’s AHL affiliate.
