Flames' Milan Lucic: Acquired via trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers traded Lucic (lower body) and a conditional third-round pick in 2020 to the Flames in exchange for James Neal on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Lucic's time in Edmonton was less than stellar, as the 31-year-old only managed to pot 39 goals in his three years with the Oilers after racking up 139 goals in eight seasons with Boston. At $6 million AAV, the team was clearly expecting more out of the winger and will be happy to move on from the next four years of his contract. A change of scenery might benefit Lucic, though he may not be able to break into the top six with his new club.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Seen in cast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic suffered a lower-body injury late in a season that forced him to wear a cast, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.

Lucic was forced to miss the final game of the regular season with the injury, which appears serious enough to garner stability. The 30-year-old under performed relative to his seven-year, $42 million contract, accumulating just 20 points in 79 games this campaign. Rishaug also relayed that just two more weeks is needed for the cast, and Lucic should be healthy for training camp.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Will not play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup with the Flames.

With the season all but over for Edmonton, the team likely doesn't want to force any unnecessary risk with Lucic's long-term health. The British Columbia native will finish the 2018-19 campaign with 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) over 79 games. Tobias Rieder and Joseph Gambardella are most likely to move up in the line chart with Lucic out.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Pugnacious in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (undisclosed) had two hits and a fight in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Devils.

Lucic dropped the mitts with Kurtis Gabriel 3:09 into the first period to accumulate the five PIM, which gives him 70 for the year. He also has 228 hits in 68 games to go with 17 points. Given the fight, it's safe to say whatever injury held him out of the last two games is not going to affect his play going forward.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Ready to roll Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Devils, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

After a pair of games in the press box, Lucic returns to the lineup still looking to find an offensive groove. The veteran winger has notched just three points (all assists) over 15 games prior, though he did contribute with 50 hits over that span. Lucic is well over the hill in terms of fantasy, making him mainly a serviceable option in deep leagues or in leagues that reward his physicality (226 hits this season).

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Next checkup scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (undisclosed) will be re-evaluated Wednesday morning, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

This undisclosed issue caused Lucic to miss the past two games, and his status for Wednesday's clash against the Devils is up in the air as well. Once a perennial 50-plus-point producer, Lucic has only recorded five goals and 12 helpers through 67 games this season; don't be afraid to cut him in a shallow league in favor of a forward who may be tempting to snag off the waiver wire.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (undisclosed) won't suit up against the Rangers on Monday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Lucic will miss a second straight game due to his undisclosed issue. In his absence, Leon Draisaitl will move up to the top line with Connor McDavid, while Jujhar Khaira slots into a top-six role. Given his heavy cap hit ($6 million), it's hard to imagine team brass isn't disappointed with Lucic's lack of production this season (five goals and 12 assists). According to Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels, Lucic will practice Tuesday, giving him a decent chance of returning Wednesday against the Devils.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (undisclosed) is not in the lineup Saturday versus the Maple Leafs, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Lucic is a surprise omission from Edmonton's lineup, but he'll hope to be healthy in time to face the Rangers on Monday. Ty Rattie will take the bruising forward's spot in the lineup Saturday night.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Sets up tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic recorded a critical assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

Lucic's assist on an Oscar Klefbom goal with 2:52 remaining in regulation helped the host Oilers force overtime, where Connor McDavid won the game. Lucic has only four points in his last 14 games, but he has continued to hit with 46 checks in that span. He can help in deeper formats that count hits, but he's otherwise safe to avoid for fantasy purposes.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Surprises with two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic lit the lamp twice in Monday's win over the Sabres.

Lucic is more of a wrecking ball with a team-high 162 hits this year while marking just two goals in the 45 games. Therefore, these two scores were quite unexpected. Perhaps it can be a spark that can start elevating Lucic to the 20-goal scorer he was in 2016-17.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Fined $10k for roughing call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic has been assessed a $10,000 fine for roughing Mathieu Joseph of the Lightning in Tuesday night's contest.

Lucic's fine is the maximum allowed under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). As a player with 10 years of NHL experience, the winger has been hit with two suspensions and he's forfeited $77,830 in total fines, according to Spotrac. Still, he dodged another suspension for his latest antics, so fantasy owners are free to use him as normal when the Oilers take on the Panthers in Sunrise on Thursday.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Set for hearing with league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic will have a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety for roughing Tampa Bay's Mathieu Joseph on Tuesday.

Lucic took exception to an unpenalized hit Joseph made on Kris Russell earlier in the game. After blindsiding the Lightning rookie, Lucic proceeded to punch him while he was down on the ice. Since it's a phone hearing, the maximum suspension is six games with a determination likely being made ahead of Thursday's matchup with Florida.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Can't get going after hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic has not recorded a point since his two-point effort in the first game of the season.

The rugged forward scored a goal and an assist in Edmonton's first game of the year played abroad in Sweden. Since then, Lucic has failed to add to his 2018-19 point total while taking just three shots on goal in the five games since Opening Night. Armed with a full no-movement clause for the duration of his contract, Lucic needs to start playing to his six million dollar salary.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Fantasy relevance returns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic picked up a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Devils.

Grab this guy off the wire now. Lucic seemed like a fantasy afterthought after 2017-18, but chemistry with Connor McDavid on the team's top line means a possible return to fantasy dominance.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: On trading block
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic is being actively shopped by the Oilers, The Athletic reports.

A power winger who's amassed 200-plus hits in five straight years following the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, Lucic struggled offensively in his second go-around with the Oilers. He only managed 10 goals and 24 assists over 82 games and saw his power-play production dip by 18 points compared to his debut season with Edmonton in 2016-17. Montreal was said to be interested in acquiring Lucic two years ago, but nothing came to fruition in that regard, and besides, Habs GM Marc Bergevin just made headlines for trading Alex Galchenyuk in exchange for Max Domi, who needs a new contract as a restricted free agent.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Looking forward to next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic is determined to rebound in 2018-19, the Edmonton Sun reports.

Lucic finished the season with a dismal 34 points in 82 games -- his lowest point total since 2012-13 with Boston (27). However, the 29-year-old enforcer is only looking forward to contributing in 2018-19. "There are ways to bounce back, but it's on me to do that. I'm not giving up on myself and I'm not giving up on this team. I just have to find a way to find my confidence again and be the player I've been in the past," Lucic said. "I still consider myself a top-six forward and I still have a lot of confidence in myself that I can produce at a high level." Lucic started the season strongly -- registering 26 points in the first 36 games, then only tallied eight in the final 46.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Goal drought continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic has only collected one goal in his last 40 games.

Lucic's last goal came on Dec. 23 against Arizona -- he has attempted 73 shots since then without any results. The 29-year-old winger's lack of production has even gotten him demoted to the third line in recent games. While he has surpassed his totals in hits and blocks from last season (235 and 25, respectively), Lucic has yet to post a positive plus/minus in his last 15 contests. Owners can be grateful for his consistent numbers in the physical game but can temper expectations for his offensive upside.

March 23, 2018 11:08 PM
Oilers' Milan Lucic: Unusual year continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic collected an assist in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Senators.

The unusual 2017-18 season continues for Lucic -- he has now recorded an assist in back-to-back games after not registering a point in the previous six. Despite the inconsistent offense, the 29-year-old winger was at least keeping up his notorious physical style (227 hits in 74 games this season) -- but now Lucic has failed to register a hit in three of the last four. With his ice time down as well from 2016-17 (16:12 on average), owners might want to pursue more reliable options during the playoff push.

March 22, 2018 12:29 AM
Oilers' Milan Lucic: Collects rare helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic notched an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Hurricanes.

The Vancouver native turned in an unusual performance -- he scored his first point since Mar. 5 and failed to register a hit or blocked shot. Lucic has only amassed 33 points in 73 games in 2017-18 but has bested his totals of hits and blocked shots from 2016-17 (227 and 24, respectively). Lucic is still randomly seeing time alongside Connor McDavid but is best relied on in leagues that value defensive statistics.

Oilers' Milan Lucic: Back at practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucic (illness) rejoined his teammates at practice Thursday, Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Lucic should thus be ready to roll for Thursday's matchup against the Islanders, likely in his usual spot alongside Connor McDavid and Leon Draisatl. The 29-year-old winger scored his first goal since Dec. 23 on Monday and will attempt to build off of that effort Thursday against a New York club surrendering 3.49 goals per game on the road this season.
