David Krejci back at center for Boston Bruins final push.


David Krejci is finally considered healthy enough to get back to his proper position. The Boston Bruins knew that their twenty-eight year old forward Krejci was going to be shifting back to his natural center position. Once he felt comfortable again with his knee, we knew the Bruins former top line center would be heading back to his job.

  • That certainly put Claude Julien in a bother. He’s known to favor his veterans (unless they’re just playing terribly), but there was no way the B’s head coach could put Krejci back on the second line. That current combination has been white hot for Boston, and it would be foolhardy to the point of insanity to break up a line that’s firing on all cylinders.

    The Bruins owe their resurgence to the high-powered production of that young line. The line of Milan Lucic, Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak have come together for thirty-seven points(fifteen goals) in the month of March for the Black and Gold. The Bruins aren’t a lock for a playoff berth yet (75.8% at the moment), and they’ll need to squeeze every last point and goal they can out a line that’s become the Bruins workhorse.


    So, where is the best fit for Krejci? It certainly doesn’t make any sense to move Patrice Bergeron anywhere. So, Krejci will end up centering the third line with Loui Eriksson and Carl Soderberg. While some people on social media have not liked this idea, the majority of the fan base seems to approve. Krejci still has decent speed, and he’s a fantastic play-maker with his puck handling skills. Out of all the active players on the B’s roster right now, this is probably the best place to put him for the remainder of the regular season.

    While it’s odd to see a player like David Krejci as a bottom-six forward, this is the best place for him right now.

    It’s been a rough year for the Czech center. He’s only played in forty-two games this season. He’s put up twenty-eight points (seven goals) for the B’s this season. That places him only one point ahead of Bruins wunderkind David Pastrnak. He’s battled illness and injury, and is finally returning to solid form. With the Spooner line still white-hot, the reliability of the Bergeron line, the addition of a new Krejci line will give the B’s solid strength down the line.
