Krug will represent the United States in the 2015 World Hockey Championship, which runs from May 1-17 in the Czech Republic.

Though Krug would no doubt prefer to be playing in the NHL playoffs, his first time playing for Team USA should be a good experience for the 24 year-old blueliner, on the heels of a season in which he recorded 39 points in 78 games for Boston. Though the Bruins figure to see their share of offseason personnel changes, Krug will return to the team in 2015-16, at which time he'll continue to be a mainstay on the team's blue line, as well as a key power play cog. It's an assignment that will keep Krug on the fantasy radar as he approaches his third full season at the NHL level.

Krug recorded an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

Krug, who recorded eight shots in the game, after firing six shots in Wednesday's loss to the Caps, brought ample energy to Thursday's contest, but the same cannot be said of the team as a whole, with the Bruins now needing plenty of help in order to secure a playoff spot. To date, Krug has recorded 12 goals and 38 points in 77 games, to go along with a plus-12 rating.

Krug (illness) is taking part in pregame warmups and looks on track to play Thursday against the Red Wings, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.

Krug was feeling under the weather earlier in the morning, but the illness doesn't appear to be significant enough to cost him any game action. He's expected to pair up with Dennis Seidenberg during Thursday's game.

Krug, who is under the weather, is considered probable for Thursday's game against the Red Wings.

As a precaution, the B's recalled blueliner Joe Morrow, so those considering Krug for their Thursday lineups will want to verify his status when the Bruins take their pre-game warmups.

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.
