Jake DeBrusk Shares His First Impression of Intimidating Bruin

Published September 16, 2023 at 4:44 PM
Milan Lucic is a familiar name in Boston Bruins history, having spent the initial eight seasons of his NHL career with the franchise.

Now, returning to the Bruins on a one-year deal, he's greeted by a largely new roster, with only Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak remaining from his previous tenure.

This means Lucic has the task of acquainting himself with his new teammates, including Jake DeBrusk, who encountered Lucic briefly during his time with the Edmonton Oilers.

Despite Lucic's intimidating on-ice reputation, DeBrusk discovered him to be surprisingly friendly and filled with humor.

Off the ice, Lucic may be amiable, but his playing style is defined by physicality. He's notched over 200 hits in nine seasons, most recently with the Calgary Flames in 2021-22, where his 168 hits would have ranked him second among the Bruins.

DeBrusk and the Bruins welcome Lucic's formidable physical presence, adding depth and toughness to the team's lineup.
