Torey Krug (undisclosed) is regarded as a game-time decision Thursday.

Krug will probably be good to play, but he'll take part in the pregame warmups before that decision is made. Given that Dennis Seidenberg is regarded as a game-time decision too, the Bruins' defense is in a state of flux going into the contest.

Torey Krug is evolving into a top tier NHL defenseman.

Known primarily for his offensive skills, Krug is proving to be defensively reliable as well. Krug now plays in the Bruins' top four in five-on-five situations in addition to anchoring the power play and Boston coach Claude Julien has certainly noticed Krug's improvement overall. "He’s had to [step up] because of the situation, and I think he’s really responded well," said Julien. "Torey has gotten better every year. To me, he’s a determined athlete that wants to continue to improve. Those are the kinds of guys you want to surround yourself with on your team." With seven points in eight games, Krug is a valuable fantasy commodity.

Torey Krug has been enjoying his larger role on the Bruins this season.

When Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg were both injured, Krug and Adam McQuaid formed the top defense pair and now that Chara is back, Krug's defense tandem has formed the second unit. "It's been good. Especially playing consistently with Quaider has really helped me out," Krug said. "We have tougher assignments, tougher matchups and it's a lot more fun for me, personally." His average ice time is up to 23:08 per game and he has six assists in five matches thanks mostly to his work on the power play.

Torey Krug picked up a pair of assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over Arizona.

He played 22:55 in all, but 7:44 of that came on the power play. His minutes on the man-advantage make him a solid start in fantasy.

Torey Krug had a nice night at the office in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Detroit.

Not only did Krug score the game-winning goal in overtime but he also played a game-high 24:45. With Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg both sidelined with injuries, it may be up to Krug to eat up some of the big minutes of the back end until the two veterans return. The 24-year-old also registered an assist on David Krejci's second goal of the game in the first period.

Torey Krug wants to claim a top-four defense spot with Boston at training camp.

"It's up to the coaching staff as well, but right now I'm eyeing that spot, and until somebody tells me otherwise, I'm going to go take it in camp," he said. "Everything is earned. It's not given. And, for me, I feel like I'm on that road to earn it. But those are decisions for the management, the coaching staff to make, so I'm going to do my best to make sure they make the right one." Dougie Hamilton's trade to Calgary will open up a competition among Boston's young defenders going into the 2015-16 season. Zach Trotman may return to Zdeno Chara's side, while Krug could earn a spot alongside Dennis Seidenberg.

Torey Krug has enjoyed taking on a larger role with the United States at the World Hockey Championships.

"When the other teams' top lines are going out, to get the tap on the shoulder from the coach to get out there and to shut them down has been a different experience for me," said Krug. "It's a pretty amazing feeling, really. It's a lot different." He's been seeing time on the penalty kill and he collected five points (two goals, three assists) in seven games during the preliminary round. He wants to be a top-four defender for the Bruins next season and he played well at the end of the year after the team lost Kevan Miller and Dougie Hamilton to injuries. Gaining all this confidence should bode well for him going into 2015-16.
