Milan Lucic

As commanding a presence as Lucic would become in the NHL, he considered abandoning the sport as a teenager when hockey seemed to be giving him the brush-off.

Prior to three successful seasons with the Vancouver Giants in the Western Hockey League (WHL), Lucic at first was not selected in the 2003 WHL Bantam Draft, and also didn’t land a roster spot with Coquitlam of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), which left the 6-foot-3, 233-pound Lucic playing in the Pacific Junior Hockey League. Lucic would go on to capture a Memorial Cup with the Vancouver Giants in 2007 and was named tournament MVP.
