Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli wanted to lock up forward Milan Lucic for the long-term.  And that’s exactly what Chiarelli did by signing Lucic to a three-year contract extension, which will keep the hard-hitting forward in Boston through the 2012-2013 season.  

If Chiarelli hadn’t signed Lucic to an extension, he would have become a restricted free agent at the end of this season.  Lucic had a career high in goals, 17, and assists, 25, last season and lead the team wit a plus-12 rating in last year’s playoffs.

The 21-year-old Lucic signed a deal believed to be worth $12.25 million in which the left winger will make $4 million in the first two years of the contract with the final year netting him $4.25 million.
