Milan Lucic should wait some time longer earlier than he nets his first objective in his second stint with the Bruins.

Boston positioned Lucic on long-term injured reserve on Saturday and recalled Oskar Steen from the Windfall Bruins. Lucic is on the mend with an ankle damage he suffered after being hit by a slap shot towards the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 21.

The 35-year-old left winger had recorded two assists by 4 video games. He noticed time on the Bruins’ fourth line earlier than being sidelined by the damage.

Boston head coach Jim Montgomery advised reporters on Thursday that Lucic would miss “a pair weeks.” After being positioned on LTIR, the veteran shall be out for no less than 10 NHL video games and 24 days. That timeline would make him eligible to return on Nov. 18 towards the Montreal Canadiens.

Lucic, who was initially drafted by Boston in 2006, appeared excited to be again on the TD Backyard as a house participant for the primary time since 2015.

“It’s a particular time in your life, these years that I spent right here, so to have the ability to come again that’s so particular to me,” Lucic stated following the Bruins’ Oct. 11 opening night time victory,  per’s Eric Russo. “It’s good to have emotion and present emotion.”

Montgomery had excessive reward for the Bruins’ free agent acquisition in September, noting Lucic’s skilled expertise of over 1,000 NHL video games.

“The issues which have stood out is he’s actually relishing the management position and mentorship position, which has been nice,” Montgomery stated of Lucic final month. “His angle has been improbable.”
