BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins traded top-line left wing Milan Lucic to the Los Angeles Kings on Friday for defenseman Colin Miller, goalie Martin Jones and the 13th pick in the NHL draft.
The hard-hitting Lucic spent all eight of his seasons with Boston. He had 139 goals and 203 assists in 566 regular-season games.
But he is coming off a disappointing season in which he had 18 goals and 26 assists in 81 games.
Lucic can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2015-16 season. He had been seeking a contract extension with the Bruins and is scheduled to make $6.5 million next season.
Miller had 19 goals and 33 assists in 70 games for Manchester in the American Hockey League last season. Jones played 15 games for the Kings last season, posting a 4-5-2 record and 2.25 goals against average.
