Lucic played 243 games in three seasons for the Oilers after signing a seven-year, $42 million free-agent contract with Edmonton in 2016. He scored 39 goals with 65 assists in Edmonton. The 2018-19 campaign was a struggle for Lucic. He tallied just 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) in 79 games.

The 31-year-old left winger will try to revitalize his career with the Flames, who finished with the top record in the Western Conference last season before being eliminated in the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Lucic was drafted by Boston in 2006 and was part of the Bruins' Stanley Cup-winning team in 2011.
