While it would’ve been great for Boston Bruins winger Milan Lucic to come to Montreal and participate in the YoungStars Game against his rookie teammate Blake Wheeler, the second-year standout did something even better Friday night.
For the first time since leading the Vancouver Giants of the WHL to the Memorial Cup, Lucic returned to the Giants’ home rink, Pacific Coliseum. Not only did he surprise those in attendance, he even surprised his family, who thought he was going to the Bahamas for the All-Star break. Steve Bosch of the Vancouver Sun wrote all the details.
MK: That’s great that Lucic, out for a few weeks with injury, was able to take a negative like missing the YoungStars and turn it into a positive. This will probably give him a mental lift for the second half once he’s back in game action.
