David Krejci (knee) is hoping to return to Boston's lineup before the playoffs.

"I just want to get back as soon as I can and as healthy as I can be," Krejci said. "I know they said 4-6 weeks, but I'm going to treat my knee every day. I'm going to do the best I can to be back as fast as I can." Krejci had one goal and one assist in eight February outings prior to his injury. He has been limited to 38 games due to injuries this campaign, but he's a key part of their offense and he has 26 points on the year.

David Krejci has a partially torn MCL.

Krejci sustained the injury during Sunday's contest. He'll be out the next four-to-six weeks as a result, which at this point means he might not return before the end of the regular season. With Krejci out, Ryan Spooner is projected to play regularly alongside Milan Lucic.

The longer term word on David Krejci's condition is unclear, but the Boston Bruins seem certain that he won't play on Sunday.

It's been an injury-ravaged season for Krejci, who has been limited to 38 games (and might not have been 100 percent in all of those contests). He's currently mired in a four-game pointless streak.

The Boston Bruins don't know the severity of the injury that David Krejci suffered on Friday night.

Krejci tried to line up Blues' forward Alex Steen with a big hit, but Steen jumped out of the way and Krejci took a hard fall. "I don't know quite the severity of [the injury], so we'll have to see here," said Julien following the loss. It would be devastating for the B's to lose Krejci for an extended period of time. The Bruins are 8-9-3 without Krejci in their lineup this season.

David Krejci left Friday's loss to St. Louis with an undisclosed injury.

Krejci collided with Alex Steen and the Bruins' forward got the worst of the impact. The timing of this injury couldn't be any worse for Boston. The Bruins are winless in their last six games and they are just one point ahead of the Florida Panthers for the final playoff spot in the East.
Feb 20 - 10:51 PM

David Krejci scored in a 3-0 win over the Rangers on Thursday.

His sixth marker of 2014-15 extended his current point streak to five games. Krejci has one goal and five assists during the stretch. He also has 11 points in his past 11 matches.

David Krejci appears to be fine after he fell awkwardly and got up slowly during the third period of Saturday's win at Philadelphia.

"It was kind of weird," Krejci said. "I kind of left my leg behind me and felt a little pinch. It didn't feel very good, but I took a short shift and took some time on the bench. It felt pretty good and it went away pretty quickly. I was happy about that." He has missed 20 games with a recurring groin injury this year, but it sounds like he is going to be OK here. Krejci has 18 points in 23 outings.
Jan 12 - 8:27 AM

David Krejci assisted on both Boston Bruins goals as they lost 3-2 in OT to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Krejci has four assists (one goal, three assists) in his past three games. The 28-year-old's play has been a rare bright side for Boston in a tough season, at least when he's been able to suit up.
Jan 3 - 4:03 PM

David Krejci factored into two goals for the Bruins in the team's 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto on Wednesday.

He got his fifth goal of the season when his centering pass banked off goalie Jonathan Bernier and defenseman Cody Franson. He was crashing the crease on Boston's third goal, which led to a game-tying tally by Torey Krug. However, Krejci didn't earn a point on that play and Boston couldn't complete the comback. He has 13 in 18 appearances this season.
Jan 1 - 9:36 AM

Bruins center David Krejci returned to the Boston lineup in Minnesota Wednesday night after missing a month because of a groin injury.

It was his first game since Nov. 18. Krejci fired one shot on goal in the Bruins' 3-2 overtime win over the Wild. He also had a minus-1 rating in 18:22 of ice time.

David Krejci will suit up for the Bruins on Wednesday against the Wild.

The Bruins center will be on the ice against the Wild Wednesday, so make sure to get him in your lineup. He was skating with Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith in warmups. In 11 games this season, Krejci has three goals and seven assists and will look to continue on his near point-per-game pace starting Wednesday. Matt Fraser will now move to the press box and serve as a healthy scratch to make room for Krejci.

David Krejci (groin) isn't on injured reserve, according to Boston's official website.

Coach Claude Julien called Krejci a "possibility" for Wednesday's game against Minnesota and it looks like he could be back if taking him off injured reserve is any indication. The pregame warmup should tell us more. Krejci has missed 17 of Boston's last 19 games because of a groin injury.

David Krejci (groin) will not return on Tuesday.

Krejci has been traveling with the Bruins on their current three-game road trip. He's close to getting back in the lineup and might still return on Wednesday or Friday.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 01:48:00 PM

David Krejci (groin) will travel with the Bruins on their upcoming three-game road trip.

Boston will play in Nashville on Tuesday, Minnesota on Wednesday, and Winnipeg on Friday. Bruins coach Claude Julien expects Krejci to return before the end of the trip. Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg have each centered Milan Lucic's line recently, but that job should go back to Krejci when he's healthy.
