Torey Krug is expected to be held out of contact drills on Friday after he underwent shoulder surgery back in Many.
He may not participate in scrimmages either, but he will be on the ice with his teammates. Krug is excited to play Boston's new uptempo style for the 2016-17 season. "[Julien] doesn't mean skating up and down the ice, because in the NHL, guys get up and down the ice in relatively similar speed, but he is talking about pace of the puck and movement as a five-man unit," said the mobile defender. "We can definitely move the puck better and hopefully our transition game will benefit from it. Faster thinking, faster execution, and your team seems faster in that regard." Sep 23 - 7:28 AM
