In a heartfelt letter, Milan Lucic says goodbye to Boston and especially those in his hometown neighborhood of the North End. Milan was recently traded to the Los Angeles Kings.
I was 19 when I joined the Boston Bruins, a very young man.
Now at 27, I must say goodbye to this special city. I lived my dream when we won the Stanley Cup. I married my wife here. Both my children were born here. Boston will always be a key part of who I am.
I played in front of a group of fans I will never forget, especially my pals in the North End.
