David Krejci Shows Scar, Expresses Desire to Return to Playoffs

David Krejci Shows Scar, Expresses Desire to Return to Playoffs Being a member of the Bruins and watching a 3-0 series lead over the Flyers slip away was a devastating experience. For David Krejci, who was forced to watch from the press level with his broken wrist, that fact was doubly true.

The B’s young center sat down with Jade McCarthy and Uri Berenguer on Thursday to talk about his offseason. In addition to visiting Lake Winnipesaukee, Cape Cod and Newport, R.I., for the first time, Krejci’s been recovering as planned from his wrist surgery.

“I saw the doctor on Monday and he said that everything looks perfect.So that’s positive,” Krejci said. “I’m going to have to have another surgery two weeks from now just to take the screws out. I’m kind of looking forward to it because after it, I should be able to go back on the ice and start getting back in shape.”

Though he was unable to contribute in the final four games of the series against Philadelphia, Krejci explained how that devastating loss will only inspire him and his teammates to return.

“I wanted to be with the guys on the ice so bad but I couldn’t be there, and the season ended up the way it did, but we gotta move on,” he said. “It’s going to get a long way to get [back to the playoffs] again, so you just gotta take it one day at a time and go from there.”
