Lucic recorded seven PIM in Saturday's loss to the Senators. Lucic played a season-low 12:23 due to the time spent in the box, as well as the Oilers being blown out. He still grabbed 3:06 of power-play time, though.
Lucic logged an assist on one of Connor McDavid's three goals in a 3-0 win over the Flames on Wednesday. As anyone would be, Lucic is well positioned to put up some points playing with McDavid on the team's top power-play unit. It wasn't an outstanding first game, but he contributed in many categories and could be a useful roster addition in most formats. He finished the game with an assist, a plus-1 rating, five hits, two blocked shots and one shot.
Lucic picked up a pair of assists and racked up 12 PIM in Sunday's Game 6 win over the Ducks. Lucic has been a bit of a disappointment in the playoffs so far. After scoring 23 goals in the regular season, he's managed to find twine just twice in 12 playoff games. He does rack up strong hit and PIM totals, but Lucic is barely shooting the puck and hasn't scored at even strength.
Lucic notched a power-play marker, two penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss at the hands of the Ducks. The goal was Lucic's second of the postseason and snapped an eight-game goal drought. Over the course of his 10-year NHL career, Lucic's scoring rates in the regular season and postseason are identical at 0.61 points per game, so his output of four points with a minus-5 rating in 10 playoff games with the Oilers is certainly disappointing. Both of Lucic's goals have come on power plays, but he's averaging just 1.5 shots on goal per game.
Lucic scored a goal with an assist and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's Game 1 overtime loss against the Sharks. It's not shocking that Edmonton's most experienced player in the playoffs was its best skater in Game 1. After all, he has 27 goals and 66 points with a plus-39 rating in 102 career postseason games. With a second-line role and top-unit power-play time working in his favor, he should be a valuable fantasy asset throughout the Oilers' playoff run.
