The Boston Bruins today announced that they have re-signed center David Krejci to a multi-year deal.
The 23-year-old Krejci was scheduled to be a restricted free agent July 1. In 2008-09 he set career highs in every major category with 22-51-73 totals in 82 regular-season games. He was second on the Bruins in scoring.
Krejci is scheduled to undergo surgery this week to repair a hip injury he battled through all season.
The Bruins do not disclose terms of their deals, but I’ll have more details as they become available (nhlnumbers.com has a way of breaking every teams’ cone of silence). And there will be comments from Krejci and Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli after a conference call tomorrow.
