David Krejci feels like his game is rounding into form following off-season hip surgery.

"(I'm) feeling better," Krejci said. "I feel like I've still got some ways to go, but I'm feeling better every game. At the beginning of the season, there were more bad days than good days. Now I'm in a phase where there are more good days than bad days." He feels like he is building some chemistry with David Backes and the points have been coming after a slow start. Krejci has two goals and five assists in the last seven games.

Nov 8 - 9:18 AM

David Krejci didn't score Saturday, but there were moments when he looked more like himself.

"The big key tonight that we all saw is the pace of his game," coach Claude Julien said after Boston's 1-0 win over Detroit. "He really got his skating game going. That made a big difference. The rest usually follows with him." Krejci had off-season hip surgery and he has been slow out of the gate. He has generated eight shots and three assists in eight matches.

David Krejci was cut under his mouth by the skate of Minnesota's Christian Folin on Tuesday night.

David Krejci suited up in Tuesday's preseason match and didn't have any issues afterward physically.

"For me, personally, it was good to get out there. I felt pretty good, especially the first half of the game," said Krejci, who is getting back from off-season hip surgery. "Then the second half didn't feel as good, but just looking (at the) game, physically I felt pretty good, so I'm happy about that." He was on the ice for Wednesday's practice as well. Krejci should be good to go for the regular season opener.
Oct 6 - 7:32 AM

Oct 3 - 8:58 AM

David Krejci is currently participating at the Bruins' training camp in a modified contact mode.

That makes perfect sense as the talented pivot is recovering from off-season hip surgery. Notwithstanding his status Krejci seems to have taken a few bumps during scrimmages without any ill effects. "Sometimes you get some bumps when you don’t really want to, but I’m glad I did because I felt pretty good after it. It’s just another step closer. Practices are fun, but I’m looking forward to playing some games," said Krejci. Krejci is waiting to get clearance to play in an exhibition contest but all signs point to him being ready to go at full speed once the season starts.
Sep 25 - 8:20 AM

David Krejci (hip) is optimistic that he will be ready for the start of the season.

"I'm pretty positive I will be, but it's kind of hard to say," said Krejci. "Everything with how we're going right now is looking good. 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.
Sep 22 - 7:27 AM

David Krejci has pulled out of the World Cup of Hockey.

This news isn't exactly shocking. Krejci had off-season hip surgery and although he's doing better, he still isn't ready to play competitive games. "David Krejci was supposed to be one of our key players, but his health condition makes it impossible for him to participate," Czech Republic coach Josef Jandac said. "We have to respect that.The extra time off will allow him to recover for the NHL regular season." The 30-year-old had 17 goals and 63 points in 72 games last season.
Sep 2 - 3:03 PM

David Krejci still doesn't know if he'll be able to play in next month's World Cup of Hockey.

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.
