Krug's coming to Boston from East Lansing.

The Bruins have today confirmed their signing of Michigan State defenseman Torey Krug, who has left the Spartans after his junior season.

While the deal was reported earlier by several outlets, the fact that Krug is joining Boston and not reporting to the Bruins’ Providence (AHL) farm club is something of a surprise. Krug will be eligible to play in regular-season games but not the postseason.
