#6: Milan Lucic
Milan Lucic was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the second round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
Lucic played in 566 games with the Boston Bruins. In those games, he scored 342 points(139 G, 203 A). Also, he had 772 penalty minutes. Then in 2015, Lucic was traded to the L.A. Kings in exchange for Martin Jones who was on the team for a hot minute and Colin Miller whom the team just lost in the expansion draft. Lucic then played a season in L.A. and at the end of that season signed a 7-year contract to play for old GM Peter Chiarelli in Edmonton. Lucic has played in 163 games combined with the Kings and Oilers bringing his career total to 729. In his 10 years in the league, Lucic has scored 447 points (182 G, 265 A). Lucic was another guy who was a huge part of the 2011 Stanley Cup team.
In the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he skated in 25 games, scoring 12 points. He may not have had the most points but he was still a huge part of that win. He was the type of player that brought energy to the team from just being on the ice. That year he had 65 hits in the playoffs, which is big. If the enemy is afraid to touch the puck it is easy on his team. He has also appeared in playoffs games for the Kings and Oilers. With those two years, he has a combined 114 appearances in playoff games. In those 114 games, he has 70 points (28 G, 42 A), and 396 hits.
Not the most exciting player to watch, he was a bit on the slow side and did not make the flashy moves. What he did well was sit in front of the net and pick up the rebounds and put in the back of the net. Lucic was the epitome of Big Bad Bruin. Not only could he produce but if it was needed he could win a big fight and get the team going.
Lucic was a very fun guy to watch at the beginning of his career then it seemed as if there were many nights where he would just give up. It was like he did not want to play in Boston anymore. Overall he was a very good player who helped bring the cup back to Boston where it belongs.
