Torey Krug scored the lone goal for Boston in a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Friday.

Krug picked up his sixth of year and 12th point of the campaign as he finished off a nice two-on-one play with Chris Kelly. Carl Soderberg drew the other assist. The Bruins fired 32 shots on rookie goalie Michael Hutchinson but were stymied for pretty much entire night.

Torey Krug scored in Boston's 3-2 loss to Chicago on Thursday night.

He has five goals and 10 points in 25 games. Krug has picked up a point in each of his past three outings.
Dec 12 - 9:06 AM

Torey Krug potted his fourth goal of the season Thursday.

The marker snapped a six-game pointless slump. Krug had five points during a three-game span from Oct. 16-Oct. 21, but he's been relatively quiet offensively aside from that outburst.
Dec 5 - 8:09 AM

Although Torey Krug has returned from a finger injury, he's still not 100 percent.

Krug's shot isn't where he wants it to be and that's diminished his effectiveness offensively. "There are definitely times I can't shoot the puck as quick as I normally could," Krug said. "You definitely have to make adjustments, but now there's no excuses now. I'm comfortable with it and there's no reason for not being able to play the way that I usually do." He has two goals and six points in 14 games this season.
Nov 14 - 6:41 PM

Torey Krug returned to action on Monday November 10.

He recorded one shot and a plus-1 rating in 21:16 of ice time. Krug missed four games with a broken left pinky finger tip. If you haven't done so already then it's safe to take him off your bench.

Torey Krug (finger) will be a game-time decision Monday night.

Krug came off the ice fairly early during the team's optional morning session, but Matt Bartkowski looked like a possible scratch because he stayed out there longer. If you need Krug then it may be safe to play him against New Jersey.

Torey Krug (finger) believes he'll be back in the lineup on Monday.

"I definitely could be (playing), it's realistic," he said. "It's something we have to talk about to make sure we feel comfortable with it. It'll be a group decision. I feel good. I still obviously don't know when I’m going to be back in the lineup." Krug has sat out the past four games with a broken left pinky finger tip.
Nov 10 - 9:44 AM

Torey Krug, who skated in Thursday morning's optional skate, practiced with his teammates on Friday.

Another step in his recovery from a broken pinky finger. Krug seemed to get through Friday's scrimmage without any significant difficulties. "It definitely creates some challenges, but it's feeling good," said Krug. "I'm comfortable with it right now. As long as it keeps progressing, I'll feel good with it. So far, so good. I'm trying to take baby steps out there: No one-timers or anything crazy yet. I play a skill game, so obviously the hands are a big part of it. It's a little adjustment, but I'll be all right." . . . Sounds like Krug could be back in action sometime next week, although it may take him a game or two to get up to speed.
Nov 8 - 8:41 AM

Torey Krug (finger) participated in Thursday's optional morning skate.

It was his first time on the ice with teammates since he suffered a broken finger on Oct. 28. "Medically they've given him permission to go out there and skate and hold onto his stick and everything else," coach Claude Julien said. "I think, from what I'm being told right now, it will be up to him how quickly he gets that feeling that he can hold his stick properly and it's not going to be an issue." Krug was initially slated to miss two-to-three weeks.
Nov 7 - 6:42 AM

Torey Krug will be out of action for the next two to three weeks because of a broken finger.

The injury occurred during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Wild. Krug logged 24:07 of ice time and picked up an assist in the match. He has six points, including two goals, in 11 contests. The Bruins' back end continues to take a beating with the loss of Krug. Boston was already missing Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller.
Oct 29 - 11:47 AM

Boston defenseman Torey Krug was an offensive star Tuesday as he scored a goal and added a pair of assists in the Bruins 5-3 win over San Jose.

Krug's game is offense, that much is clear, which makes him a more valuable asset in fantasy circles than the real game. Brad Marchand, Seth Griffith, Gregory Campbell and David Krejci all found the back of the net for Boston in the come-from-behind win.
Oct 21 - 10:56 PM

Torey Krug will make his preseason debut on Friday.

Krug missed the start of training camp because he was a restricted free agent. We're a little concerned about him being rusty at the start of the season, but we still like his chances of flirting with the 40-point mark.
Oct 3 - 4:30 PM

Torey Krug has agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.4 million.

Krug is worth more than that, but the restricted free agent didn't have arbitration rights and the Bruins' cap situation tied their hands, barring a trade. Krug has missed most of training camp, but he'll be joining it with enough time to shake off the rust before Boston's opening game.
Sep 29 - 9:53 AM

Torey Krug and Reilly Smith are the first Bruin-no shows at the beginning of training camp in Peter Chiarelli's nine-year tenure as Boston's general manager.

There is no further contract news on Krug, or Smith for that matter, and the two will start to miss valuable playing time when Bruins play four games in five nights starting Tuesday. Stay tuned.
