Lucic scores smiles at Danvers school


Lucic also had some financial advice for the students. He said he was about 9 years old when he opened his first bank account.

“I remember when I was 12 years old, I was able to buy my very own, first hockey stick,” Lucic said.

When asked what he bought when he first became a star, Lucic said: “I still save all my money, as much as I can, but the first thing that I bought when I joined the NHL, I bought my very own car, and that was a cool thing, too.”

Just before the lockout, Lucic signed a three-year, $18 million contract extension, according to various news reports.

Parent Angela Tsiumis asked the question that was on a lot of hockey fans’ minds: “When are you going to start playing again?”

“Hopefully, soon,” Lucic said.

“Will you come to a PAC meeting, I think you might raise a lot of money for us,” Tsiumis said, laughing.

“Sure,” Lucic said.

“Woo!” Tsiumis said. “I’ve got that recorded.”
