Lucic hasn’t been asked to waive 15-team no-trade clause
While trade rumors surrounding Milan Lucic continue to fly, the Bruins forward confirmed to PHT on Wednesday that Boston has not approached him about a trade.
The 27-year-old recently updated the list of teams he’d be willing to waive his no-trade clause for. Lucic told PHT that the list includes as many as 15 teams.
ESPN’s John Buccigross suggested on Tuesday that the Bruins would ship Lucic to Vancouver in exchange for a defenseman.
CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty writes that the New York Rangers are considering a swap of Lucic for Keith Yandle.
Lucic took a step backwards in his production during the 2014-15 season scoring 18 goals and 44 points to go along with 81 penalty minutes in 81 games.
He has one year remaining on his three-year, $18 million deal at a cap hit of $6 million. Lucic is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career next summer.
