Milan Lucic ‘Couldn’t Be Happier’ After Signing Three-Year, $18 Million Extension With Bruins

The NHL is quickly approaching the end of its collective bargaining agreement, meaning a lockout is likely, but the Boston Bruins are
doing everything they can to keep their key players around for as long as
possible.

Milan Lucic is
the third Bruin that general manager Peter
Chiarelli
has been able to sign to a multiyear extension this offseason. The deal is worth $18 million over a three-year span, and Lucic will get to play alongside Brad Marchand and Tyler
Seguin
for much of that time after they were inked to four- and six-year extensions, respectively.

Lucic said Saturday how grateful he is to remain with the team. The 24-year-old forward is entering his sixth
year in the league, all of which have been with Boston. He's had 90 goals, 122 assists and a Stanley Cup title while with the Bruins.

Check out the video above on Red Sox GameDay Live to see Lucic and Chiarelli talk about the
contract extension.
