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.

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.

Milan Lucic has not picked up a point in his last six games.

The power forward has lost his spot beside Connor McDavid but that is usually a fluid thing and he could find himself back there in the not-too-distant future. Lucic has not scored in seven contests and his five goals and nine points in 19 games is indicative of a good start. Keep him in your lineup, especially in pools that reward penalty minutes.

Milan Lucic seems to be looking forward to Thursday's game against his former team, the Los Angeles Kings.

"It’ll be cool," Lucic said. "It’ll be a lot of fun. I had a lot of fun last year being in L.A. and being a King. Even before I was a King, I always had a lot of fun going into the Staples Center … those are the games that you circle on the calendar." Lucic was with the Kings last season, but that was his only campaign with the squad. He signed with Edmonton over the summer.

Milan Lucic has a goal and an assist in his last seven games.

He has been taken off the Connor McDavid line and replaced by Patrick Maroon who has four goals in his last five games and is showing the NHL there is no reason to move him off the line. Lucic, who had four goals in his first eight games is still seeing top-six minutes as he is lining up with Leon Draisaitl, no slouch himself. Lucic should break out soon but look for a 25 goal, 50 point season at best if he is not reunited with McDavid.
Nov 13 - 7:18 AM

Milan Lucic and Connor McDavid were split up during Friday's practice.

This might be a temporary move designed to spark the Oilers after three losses. Patrick Maroon took Lucic's place on the top line while Lucic practiced with Leon Draisaitl and Zack Kassian.
Nov 4 - 3:05 PM

Milan Lucic and Connor McDavid are starting to click offensively.

The duo didn't have much going during the preseason, but that isn't an issue anymore. "It's gone pretty well so far. He's a really easy player to play with," said Lucic. "The skill set that he has, the vision he has, he finds guys all over the ice. I'm just doing what I can to help him out and keep up with him." Lucic had a goal and a helper in Friday's 2-0 win over Vancouver to give him seven points in eight games.

Milan Lucic scored a goal in Edmonton's 4-1 win against Washington on Wednesday.

Lucic has found the back of the net in every other game over the span of his last five contests. He's up to three goals and five points in seven games this season.
Oct 27 - 10:26 AM

The Edmonton Oilers' hot start is a significant change for them.

Edmonton is 4-1-0 thus far. In 2015 it took them until their 11th game to reach the four-win mark, in 2014 they needed nine games to do it, and in 2013 they needed 16 contests. So beginning the season on a positive note has been a rarity for them. "Leading up to this year, we talked about erasing the past," said Milan Lucic. "You talk about St. Louis having the Oilers' number in past years, it's not just them, it’s everyone. We’re kind of turning the page on everything that’s happened. For us to come here and having the mindset that we believe can win is the type of mindset that we’re starting to build in our hockey club. I think that’s what helped us get that win." Beating the Blues on Thursday was an encouraging sign, but of course Edmonton has many more tests ahead.
Oct 22 - 8:58 AM

Milan Lucic netted the game-winning goal in Edmonton's 3-1 win over St. Louis on Thursday.

Lucic has two goals and four points in five games this season. He finished 2015-16 with 55 points, but regular minutes with Connor McDavid could lead to him finishing above that mark in 2016-17.
Oct 21 - 10:08 AM

Milan Lucic posted point No. 400 on Sunday night with a goal in Edmonton's blowout loss to Buffalo.

The Oilers' prized free agent signing now has three points in as many games so far this season. It took him 650 games to reach the milestone, 647 of which came with the Boston Bruins. Lucic is a fixture in the Oilers' top-six early in the season, and should produce consistently with either Connor McDavid or Leon Draisaitl at center.
Oct 16 - 10:34 PM

Milan Lucic collected two helpers in Friday's 5-3 victory versus Calgary.

He had the primary assist on both of Leon Draisaitl's goals in the contest. The points were Lucic's first as a member of the Oilers.

Milan Lucic was very grateful for his season in Los Angeles and especially towards GM Dean Lombardi.

Lucic was dealt in the 2015 off-season from Boston to LA and left as an unrestricted free agent in July but his year in the city of Angels was a troubled one in the sense that his father passed away. "I can’t thank Dean enough for bringing me in at that point of my life when he did," Lucic said. "Especially with the loss of my dad and all that stuff, and bringing me in and building my confidence back up again and making me believe in myself again like I did prior to that season, he really did help me move in the right direction, and I thank him and all the coaches and players and all that type of stuff, and like I said, I felt like I made the most of it, and it’ll always be a special part of my life." Lucic is slated to ride shotgun with Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle so don't be surprised with a 30 goal, 60 point season and 120-plus penalty minutes as he will protect the Oilers superstar.
