Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli says center David Krejci, who suffered a moderate concussion last Saturday, is still suffering from mild headaches.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli clarified that David Krejci suffered a moderate concussion Saturday night against St. Louis.
The GM said that instead of numbers, doctors now use mild, moderate and severe to grade concussions. Krejci never lost consciousness and has felt better both yesterday and today.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Bruins returned to practice today at Ristuccia Arena, after taking Sunday off, without winger Brian McGrattan and, of course, center David Krejci.
BOSTON — Bruins head coach Claude Julien did not have an update on the condition of center David Krejci immediately after his team’s 2-1 shootout loss to St. Louis at TD Garden.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins head coach Claude Julien said after practice that center David Krejci missed the session because he was having his wisdom teeth removed.
Hopefully, even if Krejci loses some wisdom his ice-vision and offensive hands won’t be affected. The team doesn’t expect Krejci to miss any playing time.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Bruins took Sunday off to rest up after suffering their first home defeat Saturday at TD Garden.
Today they got back to work at Ristuccia Arena, with Johnny Boychuk officially on the sidelines and David Krejci also among the missing. More on the center’s status after practice. The clock started on Boychuk’s four-week absence due to injury yesterday.
He didn’t rip through his equipment and uniform at the 9:23 mark of the Bruins’ 3-1 win at Washington tonight, but Milan Lucic did get pushed over the line and finally threw down with Capitals giant John Erskine in a bout that ended with a takedown by the Boston winger.
BOSTON — Bruins head coach Claude Julien used an update on David Krejci’s health today after the second on-ice day of training camp to make light of the center’s play. The veteran has reported no problems so far with his surgically repaired wrist.
“I haven’t seen much of a difference, ” Julien said before letting loose with the playful jabs. “His wrist shot has never been the hardest wrist shot in the league. So I guess, when it comes to that, we still see the same wrist shot. So it’s a matter, is it his wrist or is it the same wrist shot he had before?
“He’s fine. I think he’s skating well, he’s seeing the ice real well and he’s on target right now.”
BOLTON, Mass. — Bruins center David Krejci, who had his season ended last spring by surgery to repair his dislocated wrist, says that he’s almost 100 percent with training camp ready to officially open Friday.
“We still have five days. So I hope in five days I’ll be 100 percent,” he said before participating in the club’s annual charity golf tournament. “It’s still a little hurt. I can feel it sometimes when I shoot. I can shoot almost 100 percent. So by camp, I think I’ll be 100 percent. That’s what I hope.”
Krejci said he had the screws removed from the wrist more than a month ago.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — While the Bruins’ prospects labored through two on-ice sessions at development camp today at Ristuccia Arena, Bruins center David Krejci continued his rehabilitation for his surgically repaired wrist behind the scenes.
Here’s what Krejci had to say.
A season that earned David Krejci the ultimate respect from his country of the Czech Republic should’ve also been the year he declared his position as one of the top two-way centers in the NHL.
However, a slow start to the 2009-10 campaign due his continued recovery from offseason hip surgery delayed his ascension to elite status and hindered the Bruins’ intentions of boasting the best three-center depth in the league on their way to a solid regular season. (more…)

PHILADELPHIA — Nothing in Bruins Land is ever 100 percent official until the team gets together a press release to declare “Peter Chiarelli has announced,” but TSN’s Bob McKenzie and The Boston Globe are both confirming last night’s Comcast Philly report that Bruins center David Krejci has suffered a broken wrist as a result of a Mike Richards hit last night.
The Bruins are scheduled to practice here at 1 p.m. I’ll have more then.
Here’s the hit again:
BOSTON – It was a shock to most after the Bruins were eliminated in the Eastern Conference semifinals by Carolina last spring that center David Krejci had not only been suffering through severe hip pain in the postseason and even during the entire regular season.
After all, he had posted 73 points in 82 regular season games and followed that up with 13 points in 11 playoff games. Sure he said the adrenaline of playing games, plus the work of the medical staff, made him mostly pain-free for 60-plus minutes of action a night. But the limited mobility he felt off the ice had to creep into his game at least a tad over the course of the NHL grind, and might have contributed to his goal-less, three-point performance in the seven-game thriller with the Hurricanes.
One offseason surgery later, we’re finding just how dangerous a 100-percent healthy Krejci can be under the heat of playoff pressure. Krejci capped off a great six-game series with Buffalo by scoring twice and adding an assist in Boston’s series-clinching 4-3 victory tonight at TD Garden. (more…)
If the Bruins can count on David Krejci to perform the way he did Tuesday night in Atlanta over the season’s final 10 games, they might do more than just barely qualify for the playoffs.
Krejci registered one goal and one assist in the Bruins’ pivotal 4-0 win over the Thrashers, and played with the type of savvy and grit in all three zones the Bruins expected from the center but have only witness sporadically since Day One of the season.
