The Los Angeles Kings plan to present Milan Lucic with a new offer next week.

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that the Oilers will be very interested in the services of Milan Lucic should he become a UFA on July 1.

Lucic's agent said that there have not been any contract negotiations with the Kings of late. Lucic has been linked to both the Oilers and Vancouver which is his hometown. The Oilers need a player like Lucic who will be sure that no one harms the likes of Connor McDavid or Taylor Hall. The power forward would also be a force offensively as he managed 20 goals and 55 points last season in Los Angeles.

Milan Lucic's agent said that there haven't been any contract negotiations with the Los Angeles Kings regarding his client recently.

There's a little less than a month left before Lucic is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent, so there's still time for the talks to pick up. If Lucic doesn't sign with Los Angeles though, then he might end up in Vancouver or Edmonton, per TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.

Milan Lucic might end up in Edmonton or Vancouver if he doesn't re-sign with Los Angeles, per TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.

Lucic is from Vancouver, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him play for the Canucks. The Oilers would be a bit more surprising. The Oilers could certainly use his leadership, grit, and skill to aide their young team seeking direction and the fact that Peter Chiarelli is Edmonton's general manager gives Lucic a link to the franchise. That being said, Edmonton has been a team stuck in the mud for a decade now, so the idea of them luring a high-profile veteran free agent is a bit hard to swallow.

The talented power forward is coming off a three-year/$18 million contract and with a 20 goal and 55 point campaign this past season, his contract should be in the neighborhood.

That's the right way to do it." Lucic finished the regular season with 20 goals and 55 points in 81 contests this season.
