Torey Krug D BOS 8 Days

Krug notched the Bruins' only goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Jets.

With 12 points in 29 games overall, Krug is off last season's pace (40 points in 79 games), but things have picked up a bit for the mobile blueliner of late, as he now has points in five of his last seven contests.

Krug netted his fourth goal of the season in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Sharks.

Krug's sophomore season has been a trying one thus far. In addition to missing about two weeks with a finger injury, Krug has generated eight points in 23 games (0.34 points/game), a decent-sized dropoff from the half-point-per-game production he provided as a rookie.

Krug picked up his first point in five games since returning from a finger injury, scoring his third goal of the year in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Blues.

Thanks in large part to the injury, this actually represents Krug's first even-strength point since Oct. 21. He'd looked a bit lackluster over four games since returning, as he was possibly still affected by the injury, but Krug remains a strong fantasy roll.

In his return to the Bruins' lineup Monday against New Jersey, Krug (finger) recorded one shot on goal in 21:16 worth of ice time.

Krug, who had been out since breaking his finger on Oct. 28, also resumed his power play duties for the Bruins in his return to the lineup on Monday. While it may take some time for his shooting to completely round back into form, with no reported setbacks with his finger, it looks safe to roll with Krug (who has six points in 12 games to date) in fantasy lineups moving forward.

Krug (finger) was activated from injured reserve in advance of Monday's game against the Devils.

After being projected to miss two-to-three weeks after suffering a broken pinkie finger during an Oct. 28 contest, Krug ended up beating the short end of the timetable by one day. He'll replace Matt Bartkowski in Monday's lineup, with David Warsofsky (groin) moving to injured reserve to reopen a spot on the 23-man roster.

Krug (finger) is a game-tie decision for Monday's game against the Devils, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

Krug is still on IR with a broken finger, but is eligible to be activated prior to Monday's game if he's healthy enough to play. The blueliner was off to a hot start before getting hurt, with two goals and four assists through 11 games.

Krug, who has missed four games with a broken finger, could return to action as soon as Monday against New Jersey, the Bruins' official site reports.

Krug was able to practice Sunday, with coach Claude Julien suggesting that the blueliner's status for Monday's game is likely to be a game-day call.

Krug (broken left pinky) practiced Friday, but his status for Monday's game against New Jersey is unclear, the Bruins' official site reports.

"I don't know, I mean it's one of the things that I'll talk to the medical staff and the coaches will make a decision and we'll see," Krug said with regard to his chances of suiting up on Monday. "You know, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it." The report relays that the Bruins have Saturday off, so Krug's next chance to hit the ice and test his injured finger out further will arrive Sunday when the team returns to practice.

Krug (finger) was present for Friday's practice.

When Krug suffered a broken finger back on Oct. 28, the timetable for his return to action was estimated to be in the 2-3 week range. While Krug's presence at practice is a sign that he is progressing, the Boston Globe notes that the blueliner's return to the lineup hinges on his ability to hold on to/grip his hockey stick effectively. More on Krug's status as next week's busy stretch of games (four contests in six days) -- which opens with Monday's tilt against New Jersey -- approaches.
