WILMINGTON — The Bruins and other NHL  players contributed their semi-formal practices Thursday at Ristuccia Arena. Milan Lucic  skated on his own for the second straight day, and he joined the other skaters for the first 15 minutes of the session before leaving the ice.
Lucic, who is recovering from wrist surgery, was sporting a new look. The 26-year-old, who has long worn a helmet without a visor, was wearing a visor on Thursday.
