Krejci (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and will play in Wednesday's game versus the Capitals, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Krejci will return to the lineup after a four-game absence. The 34-year-old has dished out 10 assists through the first 15 games, but he has failed to score his first goal of the year despite firing 23 shots on net.
Krejci (lower body) is expected to play Wednesday night against the Capitals, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Assuming no issues in warmups, look for Krejci to see his first game action since Feb. 18. He's slated to center the Bruins' second line Wednesday (along with Nick Ritchie and Jake DeBrusk), as well as see second unit power-play duty.
Krejci (lower body), who practiced fully Tuesday, could return to action Wednesday night against the Capitals, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.
Krejci has missed the Bruins' last four games, but now appears poised to return to action if he responds well to the work that he got in during Tuesday's practice. With that in mind, coach Bruce Cassidy indicated that the team will have a better idea of the playmaking pivot's readiness for game action Wednesday morning. If deemed available versus Washington, Krejci would be in line to center Boston's second line along with Nick Ritchie and Jake DeBrusk.
Krejci (lower body) centered the Bruins' second line at Tuesday's practice.
Krejci, who last suited up Feb. 18, is thus a candidate to be activated off IR leading up to Wednesday night's game against the Capitals. If so, he'd be on track to man the middle of a trio with Nick Ritchie and Jake DeBrusk, as well as see power-power duty. In 15 games to date, Krejci has logged 10 assists, but has yet to score a goal despite taking 23 shots in that span.
Krejci (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
Considering Krejci has already missed four games, his designation for injured reserve shouldn't affect his timeline to return. Once cleared to play, the veteran center is a near-lock for a second-line role. In the meantime, Charlie Coyle should continue to fill in.
Krejci (lower-body) is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Rangers, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
Krejci will miss his fourth consecutive contest with the lower-body issue, as he's still without a clear timetable for a return. The veteran has had a decent season to this point, racking up 10 assists and 23 shots across 17:04 of average ice time in 15 games. Charlie Coyle will continue to center the team's second line for Sunday's contest.
Krejci (lower body) didn't travel with the Bruins for Thursday night's road game against the Islanders.
With Krejci also presumably out for Friday night's game against the Rangers, Charlie Coyle is in line to continue to center the Bruins' second line, along with Nick Ritchie and Craig Smith.
Krejci (lower body) didn't practice Wednesday.
With that, we'd expect Krejci to sit out Thursday's game against the Islanders, an outcome that could be confirmed later Wednesday if/when coach Bruce Cassidy addresses the media after practice.
Krejci (lower body) didn't skate Tuesday, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
Krejci, who is considered day-to-day, therefore remains iffy for Thursday's game against the Islanders. The veteran center will presumably need to practice Wednesday in order to have any chance of playing in the contest.
Krejci (lower body) is considered day-to-day, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.
Krejci didn't travel with the team for Sunday's win over the Flyers in Lake Tahoe, but coach Bruce Cassidy has indicated that the veteran pivot's injury isn't a serious issue. "Aggravated something there...if we were going off to a three-game road trip over the course of five or six days, I assume Krejci would have came and sort of worked his way back," Cassidy noted. The report adds that Krejci could return to practice this week, though if he isn't ready for Thursday's game against the Islanders, Charlie Coyle would be in line to continue to center the Bruins' second line.
Krejci (lower body) didn't travel with the team for Sunday's outdoor game against the Flyers at Lake Tahoe, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
As expected, Krejci won't play in Sunday's game. The 34-year-old has dished out 10 assists through the first 15 games, but he's failed to find the back of the net on 23 shots. Charlie Coyle will center the second line in Krejci's place.
Krejci (lower body) isn't expected to travel with the Bruins for Sunday's game against the Flyers in Lake Tahoe, Joe McDonald of The Athletic reports.
The report adds that the Bruins are expected to recall Jack Studnicka from AHL Providence. In such a scenario, the young forward could either fill a lineup slot at center or on the wing. Consider Krejci day-to-day until the team provides an injury update on its second-line pivot.
Krejci (lower body) will not return to Thursday's game versus the Devils.
Krejci played 6:31 across seven shifts before he was forced from the game. The 34-year-old center has 10 assists through 15 appearances, primarily in a second-line role, so this is a big loss for the Bruins. It's unclear if he'll be available for Sunday's game versus the Flyers at Lake Tahoe.
Krejci picked up a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.
Krejci had the secondary assist on Patrice Bergeron's tally just 31 seconds into overtime. While he's yet to score a goal this season, Krejci has provided eight helpers, 20 shots on goal and eight PIM through 10 appearances. The 34-year-old is still producing offensively, and eventually one of his shots will go in.
Krejci notched an assist in 18:41 worth of ice time in Monday's 5-3 win over the Capitals.
Krejci, who logged 3:52 worth of power-play ice time in the contest, now has seven assists (including four in man-advantage situations) through nine games to date. The playmaking pivot has taken 18 shots in that span and it's only a matter of time before one goes in for him. Though Krejci has been a steady presence on the Bruins' second line this season, he's worked with a variety of linemates due to injuries to Ondrej Kase (upper body) and Jake DeBrusk (lower body). On Monday, Krejci's wingers were Nick Ritchie and Craig Smith.
Krejci has centered the Bruins' second line in training camp, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Working on the wings with Krejci have been Jake DeBrusk and Ondrej Kase, and the trio has looked good in training camp according to Shinzawa. Krejci, who turns 35 in April, is coming off a 2019-20 regular season in which he recorded 13 goals and 43 points in 61 games. With Krejci set to continue in a top-six role that will also include power-play duty, the veteran playmaker should remain a steady producer for the Bruins, so long as he avoids injuries.
Krejci scored a goal and an assist with five hits and two PIM in Monday's 3-2 double-overtime loss to Tampa Bay in Game 5.
Krejci pulled the Bruins even with 2:33 left in regulation when an errant puck deflected to him on the doorstep and he deposited it into a wide-open net. It was his first goal of the series and fourth of the playoffs. Krejci also set up David Pastrnak's second-period power-play goal and supplied five hits. The 34-year-old had 12 points in 13 playoff games after a 43-point regular season.
Krejci picked up two assists Saturday, one on the power play, as the Bruins downed the Hurricanes 3-1 in Game 3 of their first-round series.
He notched the secondary assist on Charlie Coyle's goal to open the scoring in the second period, then dumped the puck down the ice inside the final minute and watched Brad Marchand beat the Carolina defense to it for an empty-netter. Krejci has a four-game point streak going during which he's recorded two goals and four helpers, and he'll look to stay hot Monday in Game 4.
Krejci scored a power-play goal on three shots and added an assist in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Carolina in Game 2. He also won 10 of 13 (76.9 percent) faceoffs.
Krejci opened the scoring late in the first period when his long-range shot threaded its way through traffic and past a screened James Reimer. Krejci also drew an assist on Brad Marchand's power-play tally in the closing seconds of the second period. Unfortunately, he was also on the ice for both of Carolina's go-ahead goals, resulting in a minus-2 for the veteran center. He'll take a three-game point streak into Saturday's Game 3 clash.
Krejci scored a goal on four shots and won 13 of 21 faceoffs (61.9 percent) in Wednesday's 4-3 double-overtime win over Carolina in Game 1.
Krejci jumped on a rebound on the doorstep in the opening minute of the third period and made a nifty move on Carolina goalie Petr Mrazek to give the Bruins a 3-2 lead. It was the proverbial monkey off the back for Krejci, who did not score in three round-robin games and last found twine Feb. 4, a skid of 19 consecutive games.
