Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Milan Lucic
Milan Lucic was born June 7, 1988 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The second round, 50th overall selection of the Boston Bruins in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Lucic is a graduate of the WHL's Vancouver Giants.

An imposing forward, Lucic represented his hometown junior club over two seasons, managing 87 points in 133 games. He helped the Giants capture their first Memorial Cup in 2006-07, tallying 19 points; Lucic was named the MVP of the tournament.

Lucic made his NHL debut with the Bruins during for the 2007-08 season and went on to see action in 77 games with the club. He totaled 27 points for the B's in his rookie season and he competed in the NHL's Young Stars Game.

The following year Lucic served notice to the NHL that he was a force to be reckoned with. A rare mix of skill and toughness made Lucic the talk of the town in Boston, with many Bruins fans remembering the great Cam Neely when they watched him play. Lucic would record 17 goals and 136 penalty minutes in his second NHL season.

After battling injuries throughout the 2009-10 season, the power-forward rebounded in a big way in 2010-11. He once again showed Bruins fans a combination of aggressiveness and skill they hadn't seen since the Hall of Fame career of Cam Neely. Lucic would post the first 30-goal season of his career and rack up 121 minutes in penalties.

In the 2011 NHL playoffs, Lucic would help the Bruins to the club's first Stanley Cup championship since 1972. After surviving a first round scare from the Montreal Canadiens, the Bruins steamrolled over the Philadelphia Flyers and endured a seven game battle with the Tampa Bay Lightning en route to the Stanley Cup Final where they would take on the powerful Vancouver Canucks.

The Bruins would defeat the Canucks in a classic seven game series, with Lucic contributing 12 points in 25 playoff games.

After playing eight seasons for the Boston Bruins, Lucic was traded to the Los Angeles Kings for Martin Jones, Colin Miller, and a first round draft pick. Lucic would appear in 81 games for the Kings in 2015-16, reaching the 20-goal plateau for the fourth time in his career.

Lucic found himself an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2016 and inked a multi-year deal with the Edmonton Oilers. He would join the club the following season.
