Milan Lucic scored the game winning goal at 9:50 in the third as the Oilers beat the Blackhawks 3-1 Saturday night.

Lucic’s 12th goal of the season snapped a 10-game streak in which he failed to find the back of the net. In that span of games, he earned only three assists, which has limited his relevance.

Milan Lucic has a 10-game goalless drought and he has posted just three assists during that span.

Lucic has been credited with two shots or less in nine of those outings. He also hasn't scored a goal at even strength since Dec. 6 against Buffalo. Lucic has contributed 11 markers and 31 points in 58 contests in what has been a fairly disappointing season so far.

Milan Lucic has gone 28 games without scoring a goal during even strength.

That's pretty bad and while he has three power play goals during that time, his lack of scoring is a big cause for concern. One NHL scout thinks that Lucic needs to lose some weight as he cannot keep up in the fast NHL."I have to create more, be better on the forecheck, better on the cycle," said Lucic. "A big part of this is bearing down, too. If you look at my shooting percentage compared to the past, it's way down (9.6 per cent this year, compared to a 14.8 average for his career)." Lucic has 11 goals and 30 points in 56 games this season but if you were expecting 100-plus penalty minutes this season, you have been majorly disappointed as he has only 30 to date.

Milan Lucic tied the game on the power play with less than five minutes remaining in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators.

It was a great sequence leading up to the goal for Lucic. He first obliterated Austin Watson behind the net, then drew a retaliation penalty before putting the puck in the back of the end on the ensuing power play. It was Lucic's first goal since December 21 against the Coyotes. This season has been increasingly hard to deal with his inconsistent scoring habits because his penalty minute totals are down. However, he did pick up seven penalty minutes in the loss. He now has 28 points and 25 penalty minutes in 48 games this season.

Milan Lucic won the hardest shot in Edmonton's super skills competition Sunday.

Lucic's shot was 102.7 MPH. That's nice but Lucic has gone 10 games without a goal and it has been 17 games since he scored at even strength. Poolies who took Lucic in part for his penalty minute totals have been so disappointed this season as he has only 18. Even teammate Connor McDavid has more with 20. It's been a tough go of things of late for the tough winger who has nine goals and 26 points this season.

Milan Lucic recorded an assist in Edmonton's 5-3 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

Lucic ended a four-game point drought. He has 10 goals and 27 points in 43 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 11 - 4:41 AM

Many didn't think highly of Milan Lucic heading north to Edmonton, nor did they think the Oilers were spending their money wisely.

But the early returns are looking pretty good. The 28-year-old has 10 goals and 24 points to go along with 89 hits while playing in each of Edmonton's 36 games thus far. The one surprise? Just 18 PIMs. He hasn't posted fewer than 75 PIMs in a season aside from his injury-shortened 2009-10, where he still put up 44 PIMs in 50 games for Boston. In normal leagues, Lucic is probably best served as a quality depth option. But for those in alternative pools, one can reasonably hold out hope that he'll spend a bit more time in the penalty box moving forward.

Milan Lucic found the back of the net in Edmonton's 3-2 win over Arizona.

That was Lucic's second goal in the span of three games. Over 35 contests this season he has 10 goals and 24 points.

Milan Lucic scored his ninth of the season Saturday.

Lucic's goal was on the power play and it was his third with the man-advantage. Lucic has 23 points but a big reason to take him in many pools is his penalty minute totals and that has gone by the wayside this season with only 18. It was thought that Lucic could hit the 100-minute mark this season as he would be protecting Connor McDavid but that has not been needed thus far. He is still worth it to have in your lineup and his minutes totals sure skyrocket if anyone takes any liberties with the young McDavid.

Milan Lucic, the man scores goals.

Lucic picked up his eighth tally of the season during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres. It gives him 20 points in 28 games this season. He also led the team with six shots on net. While the veteran power forward is shooting below his 14.6% career shooting percentage, he's still well on his way to his second straight and fifth career 20-plus goal season.

Milan Lucic registered two assists in Edmonton's 6-3 win over Winnipeg Thursday night.

Lucic is on a six-game point streak. He's meshed really well with Connor McDavid, especially recently as all of Lucic's last eight points have been shared with the young star. Lucic has seven goals and 19 points in 25 contests in 2016-17.

Milan Lucic didn't skate in the morning, but he is expected to play Tuesday night.

Tyler Pitlick skated in his place with Connor McDavid and Jesse Puljujarvi during the session. However, Lucic will have that spot back against Toronto.

Milan Lucic extended his point streak to four games with a goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Coyotes.

Lucic has posted two goals and seven points during the streak. For the season, he has seven goals and 16 points in 23 games, showing he can still put up first-line production.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 06:15:00 PM

Milan Lucic had a goal and three assists Wednesday in a 6-3 win over Colorado.

Lucic was back playing with Connor McDavid and there is no better gig in hockey so he took full advantage with his four point game. Lucic had gone six games without a point before drawing an assist Monday versus Chicago. He is up to 14 points in 21 games and that translates to a 54 point pace this season. Get him in your lineup as soon as possible while he is still with McDavid.
