Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It’s Tuesday, November 21, and here’s what’s going on around the NHL today.
Details From Lucic’s Arrest Released:
Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic allegedly pulled his wife’s hair and attempted to choke her during an argument at the couple’s Boston apartment on Saturday night, according to a police report obtained by the Boston Globe.
The argument reportedly began when Lucic arrived home after a night out, seemingly intoxicated, and could not find his phone. Lucic’s wife told police he had been drinking earlier in the evening.
Lucic will appear in Boston Municipal Court on Tuesday morning on charges of assault and battery on a family member.
The 17-year NHL veteran re-signed with the Bruins this offseason on a one-year contract but hasn’t appeared in a game since Oct. 21 while out with a foot injury.
Avalanche Searching Market For Depth Scoring:
On the most recent 32 Thoughts Podcast, Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman said he believes the Colorado Avalanche is looking for scoring depth on the NHL trade market.
The Avalanche recently lost forward Artturi Lehkonen to a neck injury that could have the forward out long-term. In a crowded Western Conference, Colorado could use all the help it can get.
Oilers Linked To Montreal Netminders:
In that same podcast, Friedman also mentioned he believed that the Edmonton Oilers have an interest in trading for one of the Montreal Canadiens’ three goalies.
Sam Montembault, Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau have all rotated in the crease for the Canadiens. Either one could be a potential solution for an Oilers team that has underachieved due to poor play in goal.
