Ken Lucas has been a very valuable player for us over the last four years and played an important role on two playoff teams during that span. Ken is a true pro and we wish him the very best,” said general manager Marty Hurney. “This year, we have re-signed some veteran players and this move means some younger players will have an opportunity to step up.”
