In his third full season with the Black and Gold, Krejci is leading the team in assists despite playing just 53 contests. The centerman is considered one of the best young forwards in the game and the Bruins wouldn't be at the top of the division without his versatility and playmaking skills.
The 24-year-old won the award back in 2009 after scoring 21 goals and bagging 51 assists. Krejci also led the league with a plus-37 that season.
This year, he's been asked to take over the first string with Marc Savard back on the shelf, and he hasn't disappointed. Centering Milan Lucic (the team-leader in goals) and Nathan Horton (fifth in points), Krejci spearheads one of the league's most lethal lines when healthy.
