The Boston Bruins beat the lockout deadline and signed forward Milan Lucic to a three-year contract extension Saturday that will pay him $6 million a year and make him the highest-paid forward on the team.

Lucic, a second-round choice in 2006, was a key part of Boston's 2011 Stanley Cup victory over the Canucks. He had five goals and seven assists in that championship run.

Last year, as Boston won the Northeast Division, Lucic had 26 goals and 61 points.
