David Krejci scored in regulation and in the shootout session to help the Bruins grab a 3-2 win in Detroit Wednesday night.

The victory gave the Bruins only their second victory over the Red Wings in 10 meetings between the two teams. Krejci opened the scoring Wednesday at 5:12 of the opening period. It was his first goal of the season after missing three of the team's four previous games with a lower-body injury. He made his debut on Monday. Also scoring for the Bruins Wednesday was Reilly Smith, his second of the season. Smith also put one past Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard in the shootout.

David Krejci said he "felt pretty good" after making his season debut Monday.

He missed Boston's previous three games with what is believed to be a lower-body injury. "Honestly there were some shifts where I stayed on the ice a little too long and it was hard to catch a breath after that," Krejci said. "Overall, I feel pretty good." He managed to register one shot in 19:05 of ice time.

David Krejci (undisclosed) will make his season debut on Monday.

Krejci started the season on the injured reserve list due to the ailment. He'll center the Bruins' top line.
Oct 13 - 12:54 PM

David Krejci (undisclosed) took part in Sunday's practice and he's hoping to make his season debut on Monday night.

If he gets the green light to play versus Colorado then it will probably be alongside recent callup Seth Griffith and Milan Lucic. Krejci led the Bruins in scoring last season, with 69 points in 80 games, and he inked a lucrative six-year, $43.5 million contract with the Bruins a little more than a month ago.

Claude Julien hopes to have David Krejci (undisclosed) back in the lineup on Monday when Boston faces Colorado.

Krejci has missed the first three games of the regular season with an undisclosed injury. Although they’d like to have him back, Krejci’s availability is still to-be-determined.
Oct 12 - 12:32 PM

David Krejci (undisclosed) is eligible to come off of injured reserve on Monday.

The Bruins have struggled offensively in their first three games of the season. Their power play has gone one-for-11 in that span. The addition of Krejci to the Bruins' lineup will definitely help, but the losses of Jarome Iginla and Johnny Boychuk have hurt early-on. There is no word on if Krejci will play in Monday's game against Colorado.
Oct 12 - 9:31 AM

David Krejci (undisclosed) is expected to miss Boston's first three games at a minimum.

This has to be a disappointment for Boston given that they originally thought his injury was "very, very minor." On the plus side, the Bruins are seeing progress in Krejci's condition.
Oct 8 - 2:04 PM

David Krejci (undisclosed) is on the injured reserve list.

Krejci's injury was originally described as "minor," but it hasn't healed as quickly as the Bruins had hoped. He had 19 goals and 69 points in 80 games last season.
Oct 7 - 6:47 PM

David Krejci will need to have his undisclosed injury reassessed on Wednesday.

The Bruins originally termed Krejci's injury as "minor" and while they're sticking with that stance, they did add that it hasn't healed as well as they were anticipating. He left Saturday's preseason game as a result of the ailment.
Oct 7 - 12:09 PM

David Krejci departed from Saturday’s game in the second period with an undisclosed injury.

Coach Claude Julien said it is nothing to worry about, calling it "very, very minor." Krejci had 19 goals and 50 assists last year and should have plenty of time to get fully healthy before the season officially starts Oct. 8.
Oct 4 - 9:06 PM

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli feels David Krejci's newly signed six-year, $43.5 million contract is "reasonable" in this market.

"He's been a really valuable player for us," Chiarelli said of Krejci. He added, "I really consider him one of the pillars of this franchise, so to get him locked at fairly reasonable term and reasonable value speaks to a couple of things: it speaks to him wanting to stay and continue being a part of us trying to win, and our commitment trying to keep this successful core together." Krejci's cap hit of $7.25 million is probably around what he would have gotten on the open market, if not a little less, but the deal isn't without its risks. Krejci is 28 years old and, including the season remaining on his old contract, is now signed through 2020-21, so the Bruins are gambling on the idea that he won't decline in his 30s. This deal also adds another element to the Bruins' complicated cap situation. If the ceiling continues to rise at a steady pace, then Boston should be fine in the long run, but if it doesn't then the Bruins will be among the teams in a bind.
Sep 5 - 5:43 PM

David Krejci's newly signed six-year deal comes with a no-movement clause until June 2019.

After that, he'll have a modified no-trade clause for the remainder of his deal. His contract is worth $43.5 million and will start with the 2015-16 campaign.
Sep 5 - 10:15 AM

The Boston Bruins officially announced David Krejci's six-year extension worth $43.5 million on Thursday.

His new deal will take him through the 2020-21 season and it will carry an annual cap figure of $7,250,000. Krejci led the Bruins in scoring last year with 69 points in 80 games. He also finished first in the league with a plus-39 rating.
Sep 4 - 2:59 PM

A source out of his native Czech Republic is reporting that center David Krejci has agreed to terms with the Bruins on a 6-year, $43 million contract extension.

There had been rumblings as recently as last week that the two sides were negotiating a long-term pact so this news isn't entirely out of left field. By earning just over $7 million per season, Krejci would rank atop the Bruins in terms of average annual value, slightly ahead of teammates Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron and Tuukka Rask.
