GM Peter Chiarelli doesn't expect David Krejci (groin) to be out much longer.
"I would think he’ll be back in short order," said Chiarelli. "Just what short order, I don’t know. It's an on-again, off-again thing. I would expect him back. It's something where you can feel 100 percent one day and then you can feel a little distress. That's what happened on a couple of occasions." The Bruins seem to be confident that Krejci will get over this, but he's missed more games than he's played so far which isn't very encouraging. Having said that, it's still too early to give up on him. Nov 26 - 9:36 AM

A source told the Boston Herald on Monday that David Krejci is battling a pulled groin.

An ailing hip was reportedly what was bothering Krejci, but a groin problem can be related to that as well. Either way, it has kept him out of the lineup for 12 games this season. Krejci has been in and out for the first part of the year, but coach Claude Julien said that "it's not something we're going to have to manage all year." That's good news but a healthier Krejci is all that matters to fantasy owners. Consider him day-to-day for now because that's the way the Bruins are treating his injury.

David Krejci (hip) won't play Monday night and coach Claude Julien provided an update on the center's status.

"The only thing I would tell you is that from everything I'm being told, it's not something we're going to have to manage all year and I know that's a big issue in wondering what's going on, but it's something that's going to be fixed is what I'm being told." Krejci has been in and out of the lineup with what is believed to be a hip issue, but he when Julien stressed he was 100 percent. His injury has been complicated, but there is some hope that he will get over it.

David Krejci will indeed miss Saturday's game against Montreal.

Krejci's hip appears to be the culprit, but we don't know for sure just yet. We'll keep you posted as the news unfolds. For now though, Krejci will miss his eighth game in the last 11.

David Krejci did not play against Columbus Friday night due to what is believed to be an ongoing injury to his hip.

Krejci has been laboring with this injury for some time and it doesn't seem to be going away. The concern of course, is that a longer rest or surgery might be in order, although the Bruins aren't saying that now. Krejci is questionable for Saturday night's contest against Montreal, and if he fails to suit up it will be the eighth game out of Boston's last 11 he has missed due to the hip problem. If you have the talented pivot on your fantasy team you should be worried.

David Krecji will be a late scratch against the Islanders Friday night.

It appears that Alexander Khokhlachev's emergency call up was necessary after all. He'll play in his second career game and line up between Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith.

With David Krejci back in the lineup Tuesday night, Boston's line combinations were put back into order.

"I think it stabilizes a lot of things," coach Claude Julien said. "Krech, for his first game back and (after) missing quite a few, he handled himself well." Krejci skated with Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith, while Chris Kelly returned to a line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson. Matt Fraser, who was filling for an injured Brad Marchand, played with Patrice Bergeron and Reilly Smith.

David Krejci is in Tuesday night's lineup against St. Louis while defenseman Kevan Miller will be a healthy scratch.

David Krejci (lower body) appears to be close to returning, judging from Monday's practice.

He skated between Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith, did some work on the power play and finished the session. However, the Bruins are being cautious with his reinsertion into the lineup. "I haven't gotten anything from our medical staff that said he's cleared to go, so I can't answer that now," said coach Claude Julien. "He's come along and he's felt pretty good, from what I'm told, but they want to make the right decision, so they haven't cleared him yet for me."
Nov 18 - 8:30 AM

David Krejci is doubtful for Saturday afternoon's contest against Carolina.

He is still just skating on his own due to what is likely a hip injury and will need to have a couple of practises under his belt before he returns to game action. He may miss another few games before he is able to suit up. Keep Krejci on reseve until further notice.
Nov 15 - 8:40 AM

David Krejci (lower body) resumed skating on Friday.

Krejci remains day-to-day and we would be surprised if he returned on Saturday given that he hasn't participated in a team practice since being sidelined again. He has missed three straight games and five of Boston's last six contests.
Nov 14 - 2:36 PM

David Krejci (lower body) won't join the Bruins on their upcoming two-game road trip.

Boston will play in Toronto on Wednesday and Montreal on Thursday. He has already missed three of the Bruins' last four games.

David Krejci is doubtful to face the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.

"He's day-to-day, leave it at that," said coach Claude Julien after practice on Sunday. "He's still going through the same thing." It's believed that Krejci is dealing with a hip issue, but the Bruins wouldn't confirm. Krejci has been kept off the ice for the past three days.
Nov 10 - 9:40 AM

David Krejci was not on the ice for the Bruins' practice on Sunday morning.

Krejci has been battling a a lower-body injury throughout the season. He left Thursday's game in the third period with some discomfort and admitted that he wasn't 100% healthy. We'll have more information as it's made available.
Nov 9 - 11:50 AM

David Krejci missed Friday's practice and his status for the Bruins' next game, Monday night, is unclear.

There is a bit of concern out of Boston as it appears that Krejci is dealing with a hip injury of some sort. The Boston pivot has already had hip surgery so the Bruins will be cautious with him. "Our medical staff is going to be dealing with that", said Boston coach Claude Julien. "We’ve got one of the best medical staffs in the league here in Boston. I think it's just a matter of giving him time. I anticipate him being fine. We've just got to give it a little bit of time." There is certainly a chance Krejci will not play in Monday's contest against New Jersey. We will update you as to his status over the next two days.
