Lucic (undisclosed) missed the Oilers’ morning skate but will play on Tuesday.
Lucic has started to pick it up recently, picking up two goals and five assists (seven points) in his last four games. Lucic has played very well on Connor McDavid’s wing, but not so well away from McDavid, which isn’t surprising.
The Oilers have signed Milan Lucic to a seven-year deal worth $42 million ($6.0M AAV).
Lucic, 28, spent the first nine seasons of his NHL career with the Bruins and the Kings, tallying a total of 159 goals and 238 assists (397 points) in 647 career games. He has been a reliable Fantasy asset, who has averaged around 20 goals and 30 assists per 82 games over the last eight years. He is a great source of hits and PIMS and with a new-found spot next to Connor McDavid, Lucic could be in for a huge 2016-17 fantasy season.
The Kings have acquired Milan Lucic from the Bruins for Martin Jones, Colin Miller and the 13th overall pick.
Lucic, 27, had one of the worst seasons of his NHL career last year. The 6-foot-3, 228 lbs. hard-nosed forward had just 44 points (18G / 26A) in 81 games after averaging 60.6 points per season in his previous three full seasons. A change of scenery might do Lucic some good and he should fit in perfectly with the Kings.
Lucic (illness) is on his way to New York; expected to play tonight vs. the Rangers.
Lucic was not on the ice for the Bruins morning skate because he didn’t travel with the team yesterday. Lucic must be feeling better because he is on his way to the Big Apple and is expected to be in the lineup tonight. Lucic had four goals and six assists (10 points) in 12 games in January.
Lucic (illness) is not on the ice for the Bruins morning skate.
Lucic was listed as questionable for today’s game, but his absence from the morning skate suggests that he will not play tonight. Expect coach Julien to give us an update on Lucic’s status following the morning skate.
Lucic (undisclosed) practiced with the team on Tuesday.
Lucic missed Monday’s game against the Red Wings, but practice this morning. The Bruins are back in action tomorrow, so skating today is a positive sign that Lucic might be available tomorrow vs. the Leafs.
