The Bruins traded Lucic to the Kings in exchange for the 13th overall pick in Friday's NHL Draft, along with goalie Martin Jones and prospect Colin Miller, reports.

The 27-year-old Lucic, who scored 18 goals and 44 points to go along with 81 PIM in 81 games with the Bruins in 2014-15, has one year remaining on his current deal, which carries a $6 million salary cap hit. The trade (the team's second blockbuster of the day) gives the Bruins some financial flexibility to make further deals as the draft approaches, but in the process they'll bid adieu to a bruising left winger, who can be a dominant power forward when he's on.

Lucic finished the 2014-15 season for the Bruins with 18 goals, 44 points and 81 PIM in 81 games, to go along with a plus-13 rating.

From a fantasy perspective, all of Lucic's key numbers were down from the production that he enjoyed in 2013-14, when he notched 24 goals, 59 points and 91 PIM in 80 games to go along with a plus-30 rating. The 26-year-old power forward is now slated to enter the final year of his current contract with the Bruins (worth $6 million per season) and it remains to be seen if the team will try to extend Lucic or possibly consider dealing him down the road. Per, Lucic would like to remain with the Bruins, but the team's failure to qualify for the playoffs could lead to an offseason shake-up and at this stage few of the team's players who are under contract for next season are considered untouchable.

Lucic assisted on the game-tying goal and scored the game-winner with 1:09 remaining Tuesday against Florida.

It's still been a slow offensive year for Lucic, but he does have four points over the last three games, marking an emergence from a six-game slump in which he'd managed just a single assist. Normally a strong contributor of goon points, he's been rather limited in the PIM department for a while now -- Lucic has just eight penalty minutes in all of calendar year 2015 so far.

Lucic notched two goals in a huge win for Boston on Saturday.

The Bruins came into the game in a free fall having lost six straight games but Lucic came up big at the right time. The goals were his 16th and 17th of the season but they were only his third and fourth in March.

Lucic tallied the game-winning goal in Saturday's 2-0 triumph over the Penguins.

Lucic has been a catalyst in the Bruins' five-game winning streak, generating four points while racking up 18 hits during that span. He's still on track to fall short of 50 points for the season, but given the high level he's played at of late, he should make for a worthy activation during the fantasy playoffs.

Lucic assisted on Ryan Spooner's second goal of the game in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Senators.

Lucic has been starting to heat up of late, both offensive and in the secondary categories. Over his last five games, he's recorded two goals, three assists, 15 hits, and two PIM, production in line with what he often displayed during last season's stellar campaign. Lucic is still in line to finish with down numbers across the board in 2014-15, but he's still worth keeping active in just about any format right now while he continues to thrive.

Lucic scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over Arizona. It's his first multi-point game since Jan. 29.

His 34 points this season project to a woeful 45 by year end and that's a significant drop-off from an expected 60. Even his 13 goals so far mean he'll be lucky to hit 18 if he maintains his current pace. He's been a fantasy anchor on many a squad; we're not really forecasting much of a change over the next 20 games.

Lucic notched the game-winning goal in Sunday's 6-2 victory over the Blackhawks.

Lucic had failed to record a goal in his previous seven games, and no points in his last four. The winger is still as ornery as ever with 185 hits and 73 PIM on the season, but he's seen his offense totals decrease across the board. He's on pace to fall below the 50-point mark for the first 82-game season since 2009-10.

Lucic found the back of the net in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

The status of Lucic was in question leading up to the matchup against the Rangers because he was dealing with flu-like symptoms. Still, he was on the ice for 15:53, which was just over a minute less than his average this season. The goal from Lucic is a great sign that he isn't affected by the illness.
