The Boston Bruins selected the big-bodied forward, Milan Lucic, with the 50th overall pick of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Immediately upon being drafted, Bruins fans were informed of the type of player Milan Lucic was, and he delivered on all of those expectations, and then some.

The instant-fan-favorite found a ton of success with the Bruins in his eight seasons on the team, much in part to his huge size. Milan Lucic stands at 6-foot-4 and he isn’t afraid to use his 240 pound frame to make things happen in true Bruins style. Lucic showed that he could lay out hits, fight with the toughest players in the league, and still be an effective top-six player, all at once. Lucic has a career 363 points in 598 games including a 30 goal season and two 20 goal seasons, and he showed that he was far more than just a brute on the ice.

Milan Lucic would eventually be traded away in the offeseason prior to the 2015-16 season, but his contributions to the team will always be remembered. His name will always be immortalized in Bruins history as well, as he was an integral part of the Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup Victory.
