Torey Krug D BOS 15 hours ago

Krug recorded an assist in his third consecutive game Sunday against the Hurricanes.

The blueliner also put six shots on net in the 2-1 win, which matched his highest total for the season. With Dougie Hamilton missing the previous four games and perhaps out for the remainder of the regular season, Krug has taken on a larger role for the Bruins, surpassing 21 minutes of ice time during three of those four games. That's a fairly noticeable increase from the 19:27 TOI Krug has been averaging for the season.

Krug scored a goal, added a power-play assist, went plus-1 and gathered two PIM in Thursday's loss to the Senators.

The offensively gifted defenseman hadn't been finding much luck on the scoresheet of late -- he'd tallied just a lonely assist in his prior nine games -- but you can't keep him down too long. Still, fantasy owners who drafted Krug this year likely did so with the thought that he'd exceed last year's offensive production; instead, he'll have to pick up the pace a bit in the season's final weeks just to match the 40 points he collected in 2013-14.

Krug signed a one-year, $3.4 million contract extension with the Bruins on Friday, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

Krug was slated to become a restricted free agent this summer, but the extension ensures the defenseman will be locked in for another season with the B's. The 23-year-old has been outstanding in his first two full seasons in the NHL, tallying 25 goals and 71 points across 138 games. Assuming his production doesn't tail off significantly in 2015-16, look for the Bruins to make a long-term extension offer to Krug as soon as next year.

Krug's outstanding January rages on, as the 23-year-old has now collected an impressive three goals and seven assists in 11 games.

Krug's two helpers in Tuesday's win over Tampa pushed his point streak to four games, during which he's picked up five assists.

Krug hadn't managed many assists before this recent run, but is now sitting on 13 of 'em for the season to go with eight goals. His power-play-heavy point-every-other-game pace certainly plays on the fantasy blue line.

Krug bagged a power-play goal in Saturday's overtime loss to the Senators.

After a mostly tepid start to the season, Krug seems to be finally making good on the promise he delivered as a rookie. He's now notched goals in consecutive games, and a point in each of his last three contests. Moreover, he's attempted a respectable 10 shots during that span, so it's not as though he's been the beneficiary of a few fluky bounces.
