Practices are fun, but I’m looking forward to playing some games," said Krejci.

We're going with week by week plan and (Monday) I started with stops and starts. It felt pretty good. It's obviously not 100 percent, but the thing I did today was pretty good. Hopefully, I can join the guys next week and go from there." He liked the way he started last season before injuries caught up with him and he is looking to get back to that level of play in 2016-17.

Krejci underwent hip surgery in May. His initial recovery time was projected to be around five months, which should have ruled him out of the tournament, but that hasn't been made official yet. "I'm looking at it as I want to be 100 percent," he said. "If I'm 100 percent, then obviously I want to play. You don't want to be sitting on the sidelines when you're 100 percent and you know you could be there. This is a pretty big tournament and I would love to be a part of it. But at the same time, if I'm not 100 percent then I'm not going to feel bad. I just want to get 100 percent and play my best hockey." We should find out more in the next few days.
