Krug (ankle) is progressing well and could resume skating this week. Krug won't travel with the Bruins on their upcoming four-game road trip, which effectively rules him out through the team's Oct. 23 tilt in Ottawa. Krug's absence has created added opportunities for teammate Matt Grzelcyk, who has done a respectable job filling in. That said, when healthy Krug is a dynamic puck mover whose power-play prowess gives him plenty of fantasy utility.
Krug (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports. Considering Krug is expected to be in a walking boot for at least three weeks before he can resume skating, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see the club designate him for IR. The veteran's injury will open the door for Urho Vaakanainen to earn some significant ice time for the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
Krug's left ankle injury will keep him in a walking boot for the next three weeks, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports. GM Don Sweeney relayed that Krug's current issue isn't related to the injury that ended his playoff run last season, but it is affecting the same foot. With Krug set to miss time, Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) figures to see added opportunities out of the gate, while rookie Urho Vaakanainen could now end up making the Bruins' final roster in advance of Wednesday's season opener.
Krug (lower body) was not spotted at practice Monday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports. We'll consider Krug day-to-day until the Bruins update his status, but if he's unable to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Capitals, Urho Vaakanainen could stick around with the big club, considering that Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) is also currently banged up.
Krug (lower body) was spotted in a walking boot following Saturday's game, reports Joe McDonald of The Athletic. He had left Saturday's game with an injury. McDonald also tweeted that Krug was spotted limping after Friday's practice, leading to speculation that he may have returned too soon from a broken ankle. Fantasy owners need to look at risk-reward with Krug, especially if that boot stays on the foot for long.
