Boston Bruins: David Krejci Named Third Star Of The Month


The Boston Bruins found another one of their players honored this afternoon. Just hours after forward Brad Marchand had been awarded First Star of the Week honors, Bruins center David Krejci was awarded Third Star for the Month of October. It’s not surprising that the NHL would extend this honor to the 30-year old Czech forward. Krejci has been the Bruins most consistent player so far this season.

In the month of October, has put up outstanding numbers for the Black and Gold. He’s put up fifteen points in the league, good for third overall. He’s netted seven goals, two of them on the power play. He’s earned eight assists, has a +4 rating, and is getting a puck in the crease 24.1% of the time. He looks one hundred percent better than he did last season, where injuries severely curtailed both his playing time and his production.

“I feel good, on and off the ice, and the team’s doing really well,”said Krejci of himself and the Bruins so far. “Obviously, we didn’t start the season the way we wanted to, but we’ve bounced back, and I think the last few games we’ve been playing really strong — and we’ve been winning the games, so that’s the most important thing.”

Thanks to the hard work of Krejci and the rest of the Bruins, they’ve shaken off their anemic 0-3 start to the season. The B’s are on a seven game point streak, and have climbed from the bottom of the Atlantic all the way to second, behind the Montreal Canadiens.

  • Claude Julien is certainly thankful the Bruins have Krejci back. (Thanks to the Bruins recent tear through the NHL, Julien wasn’t the first NHL coach to be fired, and he still has his job.) For his style of play to work, he needed his two best defensive-minded forwards to lead the Bruins. With a healthy Krejci and Patrice Bergeron, the B’s are doing exactly that.

    “He’s certainly in a much better position than he was at this time last year, health-wise,”said Julien of Krejci. “I think that’s exciting. I think he was really disappointed that he basically played half a season last year, and he saw where we were at crucial times and didn’t feel like he was able to help us as much as he would have liked to.

    “A good athlete comes back motivated to want to make a difference, and that’s what I think he’s done so far.”

    Krejci has certainly made a difference so far. He and all the Bruins will attempt to continue their winning ways as they take on the Dallas Stars tomorrow night at the TD Garden.
