Days before the game in Shanghai, the Bruins were in Hangzhou to visit the headquarters of Alibaba, the e-commerce giant that sponsored Saturday's contest.

They were released on bail early Wednesday morning, ESPN reported.

"I'm just glad it's resolved and that they're on the way home safely", he told Reuters by telephone from an Anti-Defamation League Sports Leadership Council event in San Francisco.

Initial reports suggested the players could remain in China for up to two months, depending on whether Chinese authorities chose to pursue an arrest, which would spark an investigation.
