The Boston Bruins selected David Krejci with the 63rd overall draft pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Within a few years of hearing his name called, David Krejci showed a natural affinity to create plays and generate offense while also playing a strong two-way game. David Krejci has all of the talent in the world, and his ability to dictate the pace of the game has allowed the Boston Bruins to experience success for many years, including the 2011 Stanley Cup victory when he paced the entire league during the playoffs with 23 points in 25 games. Krejci has also shown that he can produce points during the regular season, and he has tallied 440 points in 583 career NHL games

David Krejci may go down as one of the Bruins best players in franchise history if he continues to excel in all areas of the game over the course of his career. He is currently under contract until the 2020-2021 season, and he should only continue to grow as a player as he is currently in his prime.

The Boston Bruins have had a lot of success in recent years when drafting players in the second round, and David Krejci just might just go down as one of the best.
