The Flames acquired Milan Lucic and a conditional 2020 third round pick from the Oilers for James Neal.
Lucic waived his no-movement clause to get dealt to Calgary and brings a contract that has four years left on it with a $6.0M cap-hit—however the Oilers retained 12.5 percent of that contract ($750K) to make his cap-hit with the Flames $5.25M AAV. . Lucic had a solid first year with the Oilers but has combined for just 54 points (16G / 38A) in 161 games over the past two seasons. Lucic will likely be tasked with playing a physical, bottom-6 role in Calgary—replacing what they lost with Garnet Hathaway going to Washington this summer.
Lucic (undisclosed) will return to the Oilers lineup on Wednesday.
Lucic missed the last two games but will return to the Oilers lineup vs. the Devils. Lucic will skate on the Oilers second line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Sam Gagner.

Lucic has started to pick it up recently, picking up two goals and five assists (seven points) in his last four games. Lucic has played very well on Connor McDavid’s wing, but not so well away from McDavid, which isn’t surprising.
The Oilers have signed Milan Lucic to a seven-year deal worth $42 million ($6.0M AAV).
Lucic, 28, spent the first nine seasons of his NHL career with the Bruins and the Kings, tallying a total of 159 goals and 238 assists (397 points) in 647 career games. He has been a reliable Fantasy asset, who has averaged around 20 goals and 30 assists per 82 games over the last eight years. He is a great source of hits and PIMS and with a new-found spot next to Connor McDavid, Lucic could be in for a huge 2016-17 fantasy season.
Lucic has been suspended for one game; will not play on Sunday.
The Kings have acquired Milan Lucic from the Bruins for Martin Jones, Colin Miller and the 13th overall pick.

The 6-foot-3, 228 lbs. hard-nosed forward had just 44 points (18G / 26A) in 81 games after averaging 60.6 points per season in his previous three full seasons. A change of scenery might do Lucic some good and he should fit in perfectly with the Kings.
