David Krejci: A Bruins leader on and off the ice for more than a decade


David Krejci is back with the Boston Bruins, and that's great for the franchise both on and off the ice.

Krejci will soon begin his 16th season with the B's, and his veteran presence will be felt in many areas. For starters, he is an excellent leader in the locker room. He's well respected, and his work ethic and preparation set a great example for the young Bruins players to follow. Krejci wore an "A" on his Bruins jersey as an alternate captain for many years, and it wouldn't be surprising at all if he's given that role again.

On the ice, Krejci is a consistent performer in all three zones. He's posted 730 points in 962 career regular season games. The veteran center often raises his performance when it matters most in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. His 124 postseason points from 2006-07 through 2020-21 were the fifth-most in the league over that span. Krejci also led the 2011 and 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs in scoring, and his offensive production was a huge factor in Boston winning a championship in 2011 and reaching the Cup Final again in 2013 and 2019.

Krejci's leadership on and off the ice, plus his ability to produce in the clutch, makes him a valuable veteran for the Bruins as they get ready to chase another Stanley Cup title in 2022-23.
