Wiki

Milan Lucic (Serbian: Милан Лучић; born June 7, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger currently playing for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL). He played major junior with the Vancouver Giants in the Western Hockey League (WHL) for three seasons and captured a Memorial Cup, while being named tournament MVP in 2007. He was selected 50th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft and made the Bruins' roster as a nineteen-year-old in 2007–08. Internationally, he has captained the Canadian national junior team at the 2007 Super Series. Lucic plays physically in the style of a power forward.

Lucic was born in East Vancouver to Serbian parents Dobrivoje Lučić and Snežana Kesa. His father, a longshoreman, immigrated from Serbia when he was 27, while his mother arrived in Canada with her family at the age of two. He has a younger brother named Nikola and an older brother named Jovan. His maternal uncle, Dan Kesa, is a retired NHL right winger who played for the Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Dallas Stars.

Growing up, Lucic attended Killarney Secondary in Vancouver. He was diagnosed with Scheuermann's disease, a condition that can cause the upper back to curve, at the age of 15. He played minor hockey in Vancouver, but nearly quit hockey altogether after being passed up in the 2003 WHL Bantam Draft. He was invited to play for the Coquitlam Express of the Junior A British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), but was further demoralized when he initially failed to make the team out of rookie camp. He agreed to play, instead, for the Junior B Delta Ice Hawks, but later played his way onto the Express after five games.
