RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Lucic was one of the hardest working and most dependable players on the Bruins over the past eight seasons. In 2014-15, Lucic had another solid season, posting 18 goals and 26 assists in 81 games. While that was off the pace of his three previous non-lockout-shortened seasons, where he averaged more than 60 points per season, those totals were still good enough to keep him fantasy relevant. Lucic’s biggest decline in production came on the power play, where he scored just two goals and added six assists with the extra man. Furthermore, his shooting percentage dropped from 15.7 percent in 2013-14 to 12.8 percent last season. New surroundings could help Lucic, as his arrival in Los Angeles will bring Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik as his new linemates, and both players should bring the most out of the power forward's game. While Lucic may not hit the 60-point threshold, he’s a good bet to get closer to that mark than he did last season.

2014-15

Lucic clearly put his 2012-13 regular season struggles behind him this past season, and while manning left wing on the Bruins’ top line, he once again played a confident brand of hockey, using his strength and deceptive speed very much to his advantage. In doing so, he recorded 24 goals and 59 points in 80 games, to go along with 91 penalty minutes and a plus-30 rating. Though he loses a talented linemate in Jarome Iginla, Lucic is on track to continue to work with slick pivot David Krejci and quite possibly, right winger Loui Eriksson, who is a prime bounce-back candidate. While there is generally not much subtlety to Lucic's game, the bruising left winger can be a dominant power forward when he’s able to keep his feet moving. Moreover, Lucic possesses something of a goal-scorers’ knack and a surprising touch as passer. At 26, he’s in his prime and with a few more bounces his way and possibly more shots - with Iginla no longer on his line - it’s not hard to imagine Lucic reaching the 30-goal plateau in 2014-15, a mark he last hit in 2010-11. A return to the 100 PIM is also plausible, which helps his fantasy cause in leagues where toughness is rewarded.

2013-14

The 2012-13 regular season was a frustrating one for the Bruins’ burly power forward, as he totaled just seven goals and twenty assists in 46 games. Things got so bad that Lucic was made a healthy scratch for a game late in the season. His three-year, $18 million extension was starting to look like a shaky investment, but a strong showing in the playoffs – seven goals and 19 points in 22 games – suggests that he’ll return to form in 2013-14. When he is on, Lucic is an intimidating freight train on skates, with a goal-scorers’ knack and a surprising touch as passer. He’s slated to work on the Bruins’ top line this coming season, which is centered by the nifty David Krejci, so a bounce back is in order for the bruising left winger, who also helps fantasy owners in the PIM category. To date, he has racked up 600 penalty minutes in 405 career NHL games.

2012-13

The rugged Lucic once again provided owners with solid all-around production from the left wing slot in 2011-12, chipping in 26 goals and 61 points, as well as 135 penalty minutes in 81 games. He’s a classic power forward with surprisingly soft hands. The only things that limit Lucic’s fantasy upside is that he works for a team that boasts such a balanced attack, while he also doesn’t rack up a large percentage of his production via the power play, having notched just 11 points on the man advantage last season.

2011-12

Lucic, who broke out this past season with 30 goals and 62 points to go along with 121 PIMs and a plus-28 rating, will enter the 2011-12 season as one of the higher ranked fantasy left wingers on most people's draft boards, especially in leagues that count more non-scoring categories. He's a freight train on skates, who displays a surprising amount of touch (both as a shooter and a passer) for such a big bruiser.

2010-11

Lucic battled nagging injuries (notably a high ankle sprain) during the 2009-10 regular season, finishing with just nine goals and 20 points in 50 games, but the budding power forward's strong playoff performance (nine points and 19 PIMs in 13 games) bodes well for an uptick in production this coming season. When he's on, Lucic is an intimidating and bone-jarring hitter, who is tough to knock off the puck. While he'll never be smoothest player out there, he does possess solid instincts on offense and assuming he plays on one of the B's top lines, which seems likely, he could be a useful fantasy left wing, especially in leagues where PIMs and plus/minus are factored in.

2009-10

Lucic showed glimpses of his elite power forward upside during the regular season, finishing with 17 goals and 42 points in 72 games. He also ended up with a plus-17 rating and a team-high 136 PIMs. He then stepped up his game a notch in the playoffs, recording 12 points in 11 games to go along with a slew of bone-jarring hits. What stood out in the postseason was his developing confidence with the puck, which we think foreshadows a leap in offensive production from him this season. He’s entering the final season of his entry-level contract and given the way he continually improves, Lucic -- who was invited to Canada's Olympic orientation camp -- will be due for a significant raise in 2010-11.

2008-09

Forget about the raw numbers. 27 points are nothing to write home about, but what the (then) 19-year-old Lucic brought to the B's when he made the team against the odds last fall, was a young, gritty throwback in the mold of past fan favorite, Terry O'Reilly. In a nutshell, the rugged Lucic was born to be a Bruin. He had a team-high 13 fights last year, so he's obviously tough, but he was disciplined enough to hold the minors down, to the tune of 89 total PIM. His skating could use some work, but the hockey sense is already there and Lucic has shown a propensity to improve rapidly both in juniors and the pros, which bodes well for added production on offense. In fact, we would not be surprised if his numbers double and his fan club membership quadruples this season.

2007-08

Lucic will spend another season as captain of the Vancouver Giants (WHL) in 2007-08.

2006-07

He's a bit of a project right now and won't make an NHL dent for years.
