It could be a first. We're still waiting on the Elias Sports Bureau to know for sure. Either way, Milan Lucic is in very rare company.

The east Vancouver native now has won two of hockey's biggest prizes in his hometown. First it was the CHL's Memorial Cup as a member of the Vancouver Giants. Now, the granddaddy of them all, the Stanley Cup.

This much we do know: No player in recent memory can make such a claim.

"I never thought about it like that, but that's really something and I'm just really privileged to play for two great organizations," said Lucic, moments after the Boston Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks' 3-0 in Game 7 of the NHL's championship final at Rogers Arena on Wednesday. "It's unbelievable. It's funny … it's a dream season, an even better playoff and to win it in my hometown, local boy, you can't explain what I'm feeling right now."

In 2007, Lucic had a shift so legendary, you had to be at the Pacific Coliseum that May night to believe it. Three teeth-rattling, body-numbing hits followed by a fight of epic proportions. Sixty seconds so outrageous, the rest of the game is a mere blur. The Giants never looked back after Lucic's first-period onslaught, cruising to a 3-1 victory over the Medicine Hat Tigers in the Memorial Cup final.

"I still talk with a lot of the guys with the Giants and Don Hay, Scott Bonner and Ron Toigo made me the person I am today and I can't think them enough," said Lucic. "Same goes for my parents, good thing my mom works for Air Canada so they could come out everywhere and see me play. Even in the Serbian community, I know they were watching all the games at the hall on Canada Way. And my buddies from high school ... I can't wait to share this with all of them."
