The Bruins announced today that they have re-signed David Krejci to a 3-year deal worth a reported $15.75 million dollars.

Rumors began swirling that Krejci would be part of a package to pry away Anaheim forward Bobby Ryan. Part of the reason for these rumors was the fact that the Bruins hadn’t re-upped Krejci. This regime, unlike the previous, have identified and signed their core guys before they hit free agency. What no one seemed to know, apparently, was that the Bruins were working on an extension behind the scenes.
Krejci’s career numbers are below.
