Another top forward from the USA Developmental program. He lead the U-17 team with 31 golas in 46 games. He has excellent on-ice presence and vision and an extremely hard, accurate shot and release, no matter whether he is in motion, or setting up a one timer. He is one of the good hands people, who is a threat whenever he is in scoring range to the net. Very agile, but his drawback is lack of acceleration and a top gear at this point. Where Matt Berniers played 44 games with the U-18 team, Lucius only played 6, as he was allowed to develop on the U-17 for an extra year. The shot and ability to generate will never be in question. Committed to the University of Minnesota.
