Krejci told reporters he is not planning to retire when his current contract runs up following the 2020-21 campaign, Joe McDonald of The Athletic reports. Considering Krejci has spent his entire 14-year career with the Bruins, re-signing with Boston would seemingly be his preference when it comes time for a new deal. Still, with the salary cap situation in flux due to the 2019-20 season suspension, Boston may have to make the difficult choice of allowing the center to walk in free agency, especially considering he currently costs the club $7.25 million against the cap.
Krejci posted an assist, three shots on net and two PIM in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Blackhawks. Krejci earned the secondary helper on Charlie McAvoy's overtime tally. In the center's last five games, he's racked up two goals and four assists. For the season, Krejci has 38 points (13 scores, 25 helpers), 64 shots and a plus-21 rating in 46 contests. He's not going to keep pace with the Bruins' best players, but his strong production can help fantasy owners.
Krejci delivered two assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Wild. The venerable pivot has a propensity for multi-point games, having already compiled 13 of those this season. Boston has a cushy lead atop the Atlantic Division standings, with Krejci deserving recognition for his dependable contributions as a second-line center.
Krejci (upper body) scored the game-winning goal on his lone shot of the game and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Vegas. The 33-year-old missed Boston's previous two games but made an immediate impact in his first game back. He set up Jeremy Lauzon's first goal of the season in the first period, the scored the game's decisive goal with 7:42 remaining in regulation. Krejci has four goals and six points in his last six games and is up to 12 goals and 34 points in 42 games for the season.
Krejci (upper body) will suit up in Tuesday's game against the Golden Knights, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports. Krejci was originally listed as a game-time decision but will re-join the lineup after missing the last two games. He'll be a major boost for the Bruins' offense, as the veteran has racked up 32 points in 41 games this campaign. The 33-year-old is expected to center the third line between Danton Heinen and Karson Kuhlman.
