Found August 28, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
PLAYERS: Milan Lucic
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
from Mark Masters of TSN, Inside the Boston Bruins locker room, it's not uncommon to hear winger Milan Lucic referred to as "Bob." As in Bob McKenzie. Apparently the NHL power forward and NHL on TSN Hockey Insider have a lot in common. "Oh yeah, yeah, it's something that's very well known in our room," said a smiling Brad Marchand, who, like Lucic, was invited to this week's Hockey Canada orientation camp. Lucic has earned the comparison for a number of reasons. For one, he seems to have a scouting report on every player in the league filed away in his brain. Also, he is knowledgeable about the history of the game. But, mostly, he can recite statistics on command. "I think [Bruins coach] Claude [Julien] may even throw some statistics out, which Looch corrects him on," said Marchand. "He knows everything and you just don't want to argue with him when he speaks." continued
