NHL rules Oilers owe 3rd-round pick to Flames from Neal-Lucic deal
Edmonton will have until the third round of the 2020 draft to make its decision.
The forwards were swapped last July, and the condition attached to Edmonton's third-round pick was that it would only transfer if Neal, whom the Oilers received, scored at least 21 goals in 2019-20 and Lucic finished with at least 10 fewer markers than his counterpart.
Those conditions were extremely close to being met when the season was paused March 12; Neal scored 19 goals and Lucic had eight.
Neal potted all 19 of his goals in the first 42 games of the season before missing a month due to a foot injury. Lucic collected four over his last 15 contests, including two in his last four.
