While the rest of us slept off our first-morning-of-another-lockout hangover, Peter Chiarelli and the Bruins got busy again, extending left winger and fan favorite Milan Lucic for three more seasons at an average annual value of $6 million.

The deal will keep Lucic in Black and Gold through the 2015-16 season, and will ensure the Bruins some more size and scoring prowess in their top six, all the while ensuring that the Buffalo Sabres aren't able to make any big trades during that same time.

Lucic, a second-round draft pick of the Bruins in 2006, made the team as a 19-year old in 2007, and has played in 72 games or more all but once during his five years with Boston. He's netted 90 goals to go alone with 122 assists in that time, for a total of 212 points. He's amassed 525 total penalty minutes as well.

The team has gone to the playoffs in each of his five seasons, and Lucic has 15-20=35 totals in 62 playoff games, including 5-7=12 totals during the team's 2011 Stanley Cup run.
