Torey Krug Soaking Up ‘Special’ Opportunity to Play in Front of Family, Friends During Detroit Homecoming (Video)

Torey Krug made it home for the holidays.

The young defenseman grew up just outside of Detroit, played some games at Joe Louis Arena while in the minors and also spent some time in the stadium while at Michigan State, but Wednesday night marks the first time Krug will take the familiar ice in an NHL regular-season game.

With family and friends coming out in droves to watch Krug and the Bruins take on the Red Wings, the blueliner told NESN’s Jamie Erdahl just how special this matchup was for him.

Check out what Krug had to say in the above video.
