Bruins’ Torey Krug Hilariously Roasts David Backes Before Road Trip

Torey Krug may be injured, but his sense of humor seems to be intact.

The team begins its 2018-19 season Wednesday on the road when they take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals before traveling to Buffalo to play the Sabres on Thursday.

The Black and Gold flew to the nation’s capital Tuesday afternoon, and while most players looked as if they were traveling light for the two-game trip, David Backes may have overpacked a bit.

One of his teammates took notice and didn’t waste any time chiming in.

As you can see, Backes has a bag and a suitcase (in these pictures, at least), despite the fact his team only will be gone until Friday. Props to Torey Krug for not passing up an opportunity to roast his teammate.

It is nice to see the defenseman add some humor before the season kicks off, considering he’s sidelined for at least three weeks with an ankle injury sustained during the Bruins’ final preseason game.
