David Krejci C BOS 3 weeks ago

Krejci centered a line with Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak at Tuesday's practice.

While the Bruins' lines for Wednesday's game against the Caps are hardly set in stone, if Tuesday's trios stay intact, look for Patrice Bergeron to center Brad Marchand and Loui Eriksson, with Ryan Spooner on track to center the team's third line and Carl Soderberg set to man the middle on the team's fourth unit. A line featuring the crafty Krejci, the bruising Lucic and the promising Pastrnak certainly brings some fantasy upside to the table, with the return of Brett Connolly (who worked on the third line Tuesday) giving the B's added depth and flexibility up front for the stretch run.

Krejci recorded an assist in 19:02 worth of ice time in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Leafs.

While Krejci figures to move back to center at some point, he's been working on the right wing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand of late, a trio with some scoring upside as long as it remains intact. Prior to Saturday's assist, Krejci had gone four games without notching a point.

During Saturday's morning skate in advance of the team's evening game against Toronto, Krejci worked on the right wing, on a trio centered by Patrice Bergeron, with Brad Marchand manning the left wing.

At some point, look for Krejci to settle back in as a center, but for now, coach Claude Julien is doing some mixing and matching with the B's lines, as the team works Brett Connolly (who made his Bruins debut on Thursday) into the forward mix. After notching two helpers in his return to action on March 26 following a 15-game absence, Krejci has not scored a point over his last four games, but given his skill-set, we'd expect his production to pick up down the stretch run.

Krejci centered a line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson at practice Wednesday, weei.com reports.

It remains to be seen if that trio remains intact Thursday against the Red Wings, but a return to the middle could be indicative of Krejci feeling more comfortable on the ice after missing 15 games with an MCL injury. After notching two helpers in his return to action on March 26, Krejci has not scored a point in his last three games, though he did hit the post in Tuesday's win over the Panthers, while seeing 20:39 worth of ice time.

Krejci (knee) collected power-play assists on both Boston goals Thursday in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks.

A very fine return to the ice for Krejci, who missed more than a month with his knee injury and has played in just 39 games this season. It's been a disappointing campaign all around, but that may allow enterprising fantasy players to buy low on Krejci next season.

Krejci (knee) took part in pregame warmups and looks to be ready to play Thursday against the Ducks.

Krejci will play for the fist time since Feb. 20, skating on a line next to Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

Krejci (knee) was activated from injured reserve and is thus in line to play Thursday against the Ducks.

After coach Claude Julien called Krejci probable to play after the team's morning skate, the activation from IR makes it fairly safe for fantasy owners to pencil in the forward for a return. The steady play down the middle from Ryan Spooner over the last several weeks will result in Krejci moving over to right wing for his return, likely on a line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. Krejci, who has been limited to 38 games during an injury-plagued season, has collected seven goals and 19 assists to date.

Krejci (knee) is considered probable by coach Claude Julien for Thursday's game against the Ducks.

While Krejci's availability for the contest may not be finalized until warmups, if he does suit up, he'd make for a solid lineup option Thursday, given his expected assignment on the right wing of a line also featuring Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

Krejci (knee) worked on a line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron during Thursday's morning skate.

We'll track Krejci's status as Thursday's game against the Ducks approaches, but assuming no issues during the team's morning skate, his chances of being activated for the contest look good.

Though Krejci (knee) continues to progress, he has not signed off on a return to action Thursday against the Ducks, the Boston Herald reports.

"We'll see, but it was a pretty good day today," Krejci said Wednesday, when asked if he would be ready to play on Thursday. "I just got off the ice so I've got to the talk to the trainers. But it was a really good day today, so I'm happy about how the skate went." We'll look for further updates on Krejci's status Thursday, but it's possible that a final call on that front won't arrive until pre-game warmups.
