Lucic Named Captain

Milan Lucic was named captain of the Canadian junior team Saturday for the Super Series against Russia. Lucic is a Boston Bruins draft pick and played for The Memorial Cup winning Vancouver Giants last season. He was also named MVP in The Memorial Cup tounament. Scouts have been comparing him to Cam Neely for the last couple of seasons.

The Canada - Russia Super Series is trying to recreate the Summit Series from 1972 where NHL Canadians kicked Russia's butt! I personally have no interest in this current series but it is still nice to see a Bruin prospect named captain in his first ever tournament representing his country.

TSN will be broadcasting the super series online and it should be around this address tomorrow:

Not sure if it will be restricted to only Canada. Try it Americans.
