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. Sep 27 - 8:39 AM

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.

Torey Krug has earned an assist in each of his past three games.

He's been playing on the second pairing with Dennis Seidenberg since Mar. 19 when he notched a goal and assist against Ottawa. "He's done a really good job of supporting the attack," coach Claude Julien said. "He's skating well. He's moving the puck well. He's seemed to have good jump in his game." Julien added that Krug has stepped up thanks the extra responsibility he's been given because of Dougie Hamilton's injury.
Mar 31 - 10:37 AM

Torey Krug didn't mind signing a one-year deal for the 2015-16 campaign.

Krug thinks he has a lot of upside and that the short-term deal will consequently serve him well. "I want to prove myself as a top-four guy. My whole career I've been betting on myself and this is another opportunity to do that. I just want to expand my role just like every other player would want to do that," said Krug. "You want to play more. You want to play a bigger part of the team. That's the reasoning behind the one year. I'm always comfortable betting on myself, and this is another chance to do just that." Krug has 11 goals and 31 points in 59 games in 2014-15.
Mar 7 - 10:01 AM

Krug is getting a big raise over the $1.4 million he's earning for the 2014-15 campaign. That's to be expected though as he has 11 goals and 31 points in 59 contests. He would have been eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Torey Krug had a team-high six shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Vancouver.

Boston has been satisfied with their play over the past few games, which includes their ability to create chances. Krug directed plenty of pucks towards the net versus the Cancuks. In addition to his credit shot total, he misfired on six others and had two shots blocked. Krug has 11 goals and 30 points in 56 matches.
Feb 25 - 9:54 AM

Torey Krug cleaned up Reilly Smith's mess when the forward fanned on a shot in the slot. Krug instead zipped right and beat Karri Ramo on the backhand, putting Boston up 3-0 just 49 seconds into the second period.

The goal also chased Ramo from the net, which was more than what the Bruins bargained for as Jonas Hiller stopped all 16 shots sent his way. The Flames would go on to complete their comeback in the dying seconds of overtime. Krug now has 11 goals and 28 points this season.
