Lucic dished out a power-play helper and an even-strength helper in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Stars. Lucic has gotten at least one point in six of his past seven games, with three goals and four assists over that span. This effort put the power forward over 40 points for the seventh time in 10 seasons, although he still sits at minus-7 after finishing with a positive rating in each of the previous six seasons. That dip in even-strength production has been compensated for by increased scoring with the extra man, as Lucic has a career-high 19 power-play points after failing to top 14 in any of his previous nine campaigns.
Lucic had an assist, a minus-1 rating and a team-leading six shots in Saturday's win over the Red Wings. Lucic has struggled to put up points in 2017, so the three-game point streak he's on is a welcome change. At one point in mid-February, Looch had just one goal over a 23-game stretch. Now, he has three goals in his last seven contests.
Lucic scored again Tuesday in a win over the Blues. After he couldn't buy a point to start 2017, he's starting to find the scoresheet again. Lucic has goals in back-to-back games, and he's put together three goals and two assists over the last eight contests. It's only a start, but it's a big step forward from earlier in the month, as Lucic was starting to look like dead weight for fantasy purposes for a while there.
Lucic scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Chicago. The goal was his first in 11 games. Perhaps worse, Looch has just two goals in his last 24 games. Yes, you read that right. The 28-year-old power forward was supposed to bring power and protection to young Connor McDavid, but Lucic has been skating with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins instead. He's on pace for 44 points.
Lucic was held without a point or even a shot in Saturday's loss to Chicago. Lucic has no points in his last four games and just one goal in his last 21 games. Particularly when he's away from Connor McDavid, Lucic has not provided much value. If Lucic isn't on that McDavid line, he's proven hard to trust.
