Torey Krug Named to U.S Men’s National Team


Torey Krug‘s season with the Bruins may have ended before he wanted it to, but he will be taking the ice again soon as a member of the 2015 U.S. Men’s National Team. Krug will travel to Ostrava and Prague, Czech Republic to complete along with his teammates at the 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship, May 1-17.

As a Michigan native who is known for both his defensive and offensive play, Krug was a great choice for the team. This year with the Bruins, he notched a total of 39 points (12 goals and 27 assists). His contributions in all three zones – as well as on the powerplay – helped earn him a one year contract with the Bruins for the 2015-16 season.

"“It was a tough year, ups and downs and everything that comes with it, and then at the end, obviously playing more minutes and a bigger role with the team, and it was fun for me.” Torey Krug on his end-of-season play"

Ending their season short of the playoffs, the Bruins did not live up to the expectations of the fans, the coaching staff and the players. With the disappointment of a season cut too short, Krug can now look to adding a new achievement to his resume and heading back out on the ice very soon.

Krug will join fellow NHL players for the championship, including Matt Hendricks (Oilers), Jake Gardiner (Maple Leafs), Justin Faulk (Hurricanes), Ben Smith (Sharks) and more.
