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. Jan 16 - 7:20 AM

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 07:18:00 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.

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.
