Milan Lucic has only four points in his last 18 games.
Lucic has not scored in the 18 contests. "For me (17 games before Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Sharks in which he was pointless yet again) is the second longest slump I’ve ever had in my career," said Lucic. "I’ve had chances. You look at the LA game, you hit two posts in the third period. When things are going good for you those are automatics, they go in. When it’s not going your way they don’t find the back of the net. But you have to try and do whatever you can to create opportunities and chances. Almost simplify things. Sometimes taking a step back will make you go two steps forward. You hope you get into the right area to get that bounce and you hope that it starts for you sooner than later." Lucic has nine goals and 30 points in 54 games with 61 penalty minutes.

Milan Lucic has gone seven straight games without a goal.

Lucic's struggles to find the back of the net correspond with the Oilers' latest slump. Edmonton is 1-5-1 in its last seven games and has been held to one or no goals in four of those contests. Overall, this has been a solid season for Lucic as he's scored nine goals and 27 points in 43 games.
Jan 9 - 7:12 AM

Milan Lucic registered an assist in Edmonton's 2-1 shootout win over Anaheim Thursday night.

Lucic ended his four-game point drought. He's up to nine goals and 27 points in 41 contests in 2017-18. At this rate, he should reach the 50-point milestone for a third straight season.
Jan 5 - 5:03 AM

Milan Lucic picked up a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

Lucic was set up by McDavid moments after the power play expired to take a 2-1 lead with less than four minutes remaining in the second period. Lucic then picked up an assist on Jesse Puljujarvi's sixth goal of the year midway through the final period. Lucic is now up to 24 points in 33 games, with 13 in his last 14 games. He should be owned in every league considering he brings a blend of goals, points and penalty minutes.

Milan Lucic scored a goal in the Oilers' 7-2 win against Columbus Tuesday night.

Lucic's on a great run of five goals and 16 points in his last 18 contests. That's made up for a slow start to give him 22 points in 31 games overall, which is a roughly 58-point pace. That would be a noticeable jump from his 50 points in 2016-17, but it wouldn't be a particularly surprising increase for Lucic.

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.

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.
