Milan Lucic has been dealt a blow with a recent lower-body injury that will keep him off the ice for a few weeks, as confirmed by coach Montgomery.

Additionally, fellow player Jakub Lauko is facing a one-week absence due to a fracture. These injuries have raised questions regarding Lucic's future in the NHL.
The situation took a concerning turn when the Boston Bruins decided to place Lucic on Long Term Injured Reserve (LTIR). The LTIR serves a dual purpose in the league.
It offers a safe haven for injured star players whose cap hits are no longer counted against the team's salary cap. It's a strategy used by many teams to manage their finances.
On the other hand, it's a destination where older players often find themselves when faced with a challenging injury, marking the potential end of their careers.
With Lucic now residing on LTIR, there's a cloud of uncertainty looming over his future. It remains to be seen if he can make a recovery and step back onto the ice for the Bruins.
If so, he might have the opportunity to contribute to the team's pursuit of another Stanley Cup victory.
