Milan Lucic Has Always Dreamed Of Playing For Hometown Team

Sep 1, 2015 8:19 PM

Kings forward Milan Lucic, entering the final year of his contract, said Monday he's always dreamed of playing for his hometown Canucks.

"I honestly don't know what's going to happen moving on," Lucic told TSN 1410 Radio in response to a direct question on the topic. "I mean I have one year left on my contract, and there's a possibility that I can hit the [unrestricted free agent] market. 

"It's obviously something that's been a dream of mine since I've been a kid, is to play in your hometown and play for the Canucks, but right now the main focus is going down to L.A. and trying to make the most of that."
