Milan Lucic Signs With Bruins For 3 Years, $18 Million

The Boston Bruins have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with Milan Lucic, according to a WEEI report. Lucic will earn $18 million dollars over the three years, making Lucic the highest paid forward on the Bruins.

The Bruins and Lucic had until 12 a.m. Sunday to reach an agreement. Once the NHL's second lockout in the last seven years begins, teams will be unable to sign players to contracts.

Lucic was set to hit restricted free agency following the 2012-13 season, but that's no longer the case. Lucic is now under contract with the Bruins for the next four seasons.

Lucic enjoyed a successful 2011-12 campaign, scoring 26 goals and assisting on 35. Lucic had his breakout year in 2010-11, helping lead the Bruins capture the Stanley Cup. In 2010-11, Lucic scored 30 goals and notched 32 assists.
