Observations:

 

January 2014 – As a freshman at Notre Dame last season, Mario Lucia skated in 32 games on his way to making the NCAA All-Rookie Team and he was also a member of the gold medal-winning USA Team at the 2013 World Junior Championship. Lucia had 23 points (12 goals and 11 assists) as a freshman and finished a minus-4 with 18 penalty minutes. So far in his sophomore  year, Lucia is tearing it up with 22 points (13 goals and 9 assists) in 25 games while playing with Columbus prospect T.J. Tynan. Jamie Zadow

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

 

Lucia is a speedy winger, with quick hands and a great release on his shot. He's still growing into his large frame and he has all the intangibles to be a premier scorer in the NHL, but not for a few years yet.
