Oct 5 - 10:20 AM

Milan Lucic is in better shape going into the 2017-18 campaign compared to less season.

Lucic weighs in at the low-230s like he did a year ago, but it's with less body fat. It helps that he had the stability of knowing that he was going to stick with the same franchise after bouncing around over the last few years. "It was nice to be in one place all summer long and focus on myself and my training and my family," Lucic said. "I look at the three summers before and it was kind of hectic. Last summer being a UFA and not knowing where I was going to be, flying around to places, down in LA, up in Vancouver, in and out of Edmonton a few times. I flew around for a couple of weddings. Before that it was the trade (moving from Boston to LA), and my father passing away. And before that I had the wrist surgery. This was kind of the first summer where I could get refreshed and focus on myself, maybe be a little more selfish and better myself physically and conditionally and get myself more ready and prepared for this season and get back to the player I know I can b

Milan Lucic will be looking to play better at even strength this season.

Of Lucic's 50 points in 2016-17, only 25 of them were recorded at even strength. By contrast in 2015-16 he had 55 points with 47 of them being even strength points. In other words, Lucic did very well with the man advantage last season, but he didn't actually see a jump in overall production because his five-on-five production left plenty to be desired. "The five-on-five play has always been the strongest part of my game, and I really have to improve on that this year," said Lucic.
Sep 7 - 10:32 AM

Milan Lucic has aspirations of one day becoming a general manager after his playing career ends.

"I definitely love everything that goes into putting a team together," said Lucic. "It’s something that you think about. I would definitely love to get back into the management side of things one day. I’ve been in the league for 10 years now and I’ve seen how things progress and how things happen. You see talent. You see moves. Sometimes you scratch your head." Lucic only recently celebrated his 29th birthday and has six seasons left on his existing contract, so his playing career isn't anywhere close to finish. Still it sounds like we might continue to hear from him frequently even after he hangs up his skates.

Milan Lucic wasn't happy with the decision to rule Rickard Rakell's marker on Friday as a good goal, to put it mildly.

Rakell's goal with 15 seconds left in the third period tied the game and led to Anaheim eventually taking Game 5 in double overtime. However, Ducks teammate Ryan Kesler appeared to hold goaltender Cam Talbot's pad open while Rakell scored. The league reviewed the goal, but felt it wasn't goaltender interference based on the argument that Edmonton's Darnell Nurse pushed Kesler into Talbot. "A guy falls on the goalie and wraps his hand around the goalie’s pad… I don’t even know what goalie interference is anymore, to be perfectly honest," Lucic said. "It’s an absolute joke that two good referees can’t make the right call at the right time. Especially when the guy has two or three seconds to get up, and he has his hand wrapped around the goalie’s leg. The goalie can’t get up to make a save, and it’s still a goal. Unbelievable." Oilers coach Todd McLellan said separately that he doesn't know what counts as goalie interference anymore.

Milan Lucic scored one goal and had an assist Wednesday night as the Oilers lost a 3-2 contest in overtime to the Sharks.

Lucic’s assist came on Oscar Klefbom’s goal at the 6:44 mark of the first. He added his own a little more than 10 minutes later to give Edmonton a 2-0 lead. The Sharks pressed harder in the next two periods and forced the game into an extra session. San Jose outshot the Oilers in overtime by a 6-3 margin.
Apr 13 - 1:04 AM

Milan Lucic scored a natural hat trick in a 4-2 win over San Jose on Thursday.

Lucic scored all three goals in succession all in the third period as the Oilers came from behind in a big division win. It continues a hot-streak for Lucic who has five points in his last three games. He has 48 points in 80 games. Oscar Klefbom had four assists and Connor McDavid had two points.
Apr 7 - 1:56 AM

Milan Lucic has seven goals and 11 points in his last 16 games.

Lucic has endured some cold spells this season, but he's doing well as we approach the playoffs. "I think he’s played at a much quicker pace. Maybe that’s his linemates, maybe that’s confidence," said Oilers coach Todd McLellan. "He’s been quicker, been around the net more, a little more polish in those areas, just think of the goal (power play to tie it 2-2 late against Anaheim) he scored the other night … how big that was. Earlier in the year, maybe he misses the net there or takes a swat at the puck and misses." Lucic is a veteran presence on the Oilers who has a lot of playoff experience. He should be invaluable in guiding the younger players in what will be the first postseason run for some of them.

Milan Lucic found the back of the net in Edmonton's 2-0 win over Los Angeles on Monday.

That was the second time in less than a week that Lucic played against a former team and in both cases he managed to score a goal. Of course, Lucic has been hot in general lately with three goals and six points in his last six games.
Mar 21 - 8:25 AM

Milan Lucic is looking to extend his perfect run against his former team, the Boston Bruins.

Between Lucic's time with the Los Angeles Kings and now the Edmonton Oilers, he's faced Boston three times and his team has won all of those contests. Lucic will try to make it 4-0 on Thursday. Of course Lucic has a long history with Boston, having played his first 566 regular season games with the Bruins and another 96 in the playoffs, including the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup championship.
