Report: David Krejci Inks One-year Deal to Return to Boston

The entire off-season has been surrounded by the rumors that both Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci were both returning for a final run at the Stanley Cup. Those rumors are finally a reality as Bruins general manager Don Sweeney announced today the signings of both long-time Bruins centers.

Bergeron’s signing was announced first as he got a one-year $2.5 million extension worth up to $5 million with incentives.

It was now David Krejci’s turn as he has decided to return to Boston after playing overseas for a year in his home country.

As per Bruins PR:

Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, August 8, that the team has signed forward David Krejci to a one-year contract through the 2022-23 season worth $1 million, plus an additional $2 million in performance-based incentives.

Krejci, 36, played the 2021-22 season in the Czechia league for HC Olomouc. Appearing n 51 games, he led the club with 20 goals, 26 assists and 46 points.

The Bruins now find themselves deep at the center position as Bergeron will resume his top line role with Krejci slotting into the second line and Charlie Coyle on the third line. The Bruins also have newly acquired forward Pavel Zacha, who can play both center and wing.

Krejci will most likely anchor a line that features Taylor Hall on his left wing and fellow countryman and close friend David Pastrnak on his right wing. This second line of the Bruins will be relied upon to produce offensively as the Bruins are now full of high end talent in their top six.
