Milan Lucic Relishes Role as Leader, Exemplifies ‘Bruins-Style Hockey’ (Video)

Since his days of challenging the NHL’s elite enforcers as a 19-year-old rookie, Milan Lucic has been a fan favorite in Boston.

As a big, bruising winger, Lucic immediately drew comparisons to Bruins great Cam Neely, whom Lucic says revolutionized the role of a power forward. That’s a lot of pressure to be placed on a player in his first season, but the Vancouver native has lived up to every expectation, setting himself apart with both his stick and his fists.
