Milan Lucic joined the list of players who have played 1000 career NHL games. Eight years and a Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins, one year with the LA Kings, three years with the Edmonton Oilers and in his second year with the Calgary Flames. Congrats, Looch!
Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.
Milan Lucic buried on his own rebound in Monday's 5-1 loss to Ottawa, scoring Calgary's lone goal of the night.
Lucic has two goals this series against Ottawa, and six on the season along with three assists in 23 games. He is on pace for 15 goals in 2021. Playing alongside Bennett and Dube, I imagine Lucic staying on this pace throughout the year.
Milan Lucic buried in the second period assisted by Dillon Dube and Christopher Tanev, in a 6-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators.
Lucic has four goals and three assists for seven points in 20 games. Being traded for James Neal back in 2019, everyone thought it was in favour of the Oilers but it's hard to believe now that the Flames haven't won that trade. Tough to put a fantasy impact on Lucic, as he bring toughness and intimidation to the Flames but he has been providing great offence this year playing alongside Dube.
Milan Lucic got on the scoresheet in Montreal on Thursday night after tipping in a shot from Sam Bennett.
Lucic records his second goal in as many games after redirecting one late in the third period. So far on the season Lucic has two goals and one assist in 6 games.
The Edmonton Oilers have decided to trade Milan Lucic to the Calgary Flames, in exchange for right winger James Neal.
The two Alberta rivals have decided to unload bad contract situations on their respective ends of the spectrum. Lucic may not be what he once was during his days in Boston, but he does have postseason experience, which can be a big plus for the Flames. Calgary took a huge step forward last season, and they appear ready to go even further in 2019. Expect Lucic to have an immediate impact on his new team.
