Lucic thanks Bruins and fans in full-page Globe ad


Milan Lucic was traded to the Los Angeles Kings on draft night, June 26, after eight eventful seasons with the Bruins, including 2010-11, when the B's hoisted the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972.

On Friday, he took out a full-page ad in the Boston Globe to thank Bruins fans and the organization for his time in Boston. Classy move, Looch. 

The letter in the ad reads:

I was 19 when I joined the Boston Bruins, a very young man.

Now at 27, I must say goodbye to this special city. I lived my dream when we won the Stanley Cup. I married my wife here. Both my children were born here. Boston will always be a key part of who I am.

I played in front of a group of fans I will never forget, especially my pals in the North End.

I want to thank the entire Jacobs family, Cam Neely, Peter Chiarelli, Don Sweeney, Scott Bradley and the rest of the Bruins managementteam; coaches Claude Julien, Geoff Ward, Doug Houda, Doug Jarvis, Craig Ramsey and Joe Sacco; captain Zdeno Chara and the rest of my teammates; the medical staff, trainers and strength coaches who all kept me going; and, of course, all the fans and my friends.

Boston embraced me over the years and I would not be who I am personally or professionally without each of these special relationships.

To the people of Boston...

You are #BostonStrong
