Boston Bruins Press Release

BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced
today that the club has signed forward Milan Lucic to a three-year
contract extension through the 2012-13 NHL season. Per club policy,
financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed. Lucic and Chiarelli
will hold a press conference on Wednesday, October 7 immediately
following the team’s practice at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington The
team is scheduled to skate at 10:30 a.m. at Ristuccia Arena on
Wednesday, however the length of practice is not yet determined.

He was invited to – and participated in – Canada’s National Men’s
Team Orientation Camp this past August, in advance of the 2010 Olympic
Winter Games and 2010 IIHF World Championship. The 2010 Olympic Winter
Games will be played in Lucic’s hometown of Vancouver, British
Columbia.

Originally drafted by the Bruins in the second round (50th overall) of
the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Lucic helped the Vancouver Giants of the
Western Hockey League capture the 2007 Memorial Cup Championship.

TSN.ca is reporting the deal is worth $12.25M USD for a yearly cap hit
of $4.083M

A great move by the Bruins. Lucic is a monster now and at only 21 years old,
he's only going to get better

Bruins next game is Thursday night against Anahem
