David Krejci C BOS 11 Days

Krejci (groin) will not play Tuesday against the Predators, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

Krejci was able to take part in the Bruins' morning skate, but he is not ready to return to game action just yet. Krejci will likely have a tough time playing in Boston's next game with the Bruins playing back-to-back nights, but he could still be activated at some point during Boston's current road trip.

When asked whether he expects Krejci (groin) to play in the Bruins' upcoming three-game road trip, which starts Tuesday against Nashville, coach Claude Julien noted, "can't guarantee, but I hope so."

In any case, Krejci is traveling with the Bruins on the road trip, so while the exact date of his potential return to action has yet to be solidified, it appears as though it could be on the horizon. After Tuesday's game, the team plays in Minnesota on Wednesday and then Winnipeg on Friday.

Krejci (groin) will travel with the team on their three game road trip.

Krejci has been bothered by a groin injury all season, but it sounds like he could get back in the lineup this week. When he returns, he'll be one of the team's top two centers once again, and one of the elite fantasy centers if he can stay healthy.

Krejci's (groin) status for Tuesday's game against Nashville has yet to be clarified, the Boston Herald reports.

For his part, GM Peter Chiarelli indicated that he thinks that Krejci -- who practiced again Monday -- will be back in Bruins' lineup shortly, but at this stage the center's availability for Tuesday's contest remains up in the air.

Krejci (groin) won't play Saturday against the Senators.

Though he is ruled out for Saturday's contest, Krejci has been able to practice of late, suggesting that he is nearing a return to action, perhaps as soon as Tuesday's game against the Predators.

Krejci (groin) was seen skating Saturday morning, a sign that he won't play in the Bruins' afternoon game against the Senators, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

None of the Bruins' skaters expected to play Saturday took to the ice in the morning, so it seems Krejci was just getting in a workout of his own as he attempts to put the groin injury behind him. He's been practicing with the team for multiple days and does appear to be narrowing in on a return, but it doesn't look like that will transpire until Tuesday in Nashville at the earliest.

Krejci (groin) skated with the Bruins again Friday morning, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

While Krejci was unable to nurse himself back to full health in time for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, his participation in practice for the fourth straight day is highly encouraging. It looks like he could be ready to go for Saturday's game against the Senators.

Krejci (groin) wasn't on the ice for pregame warmups and will not play Thursday against the Blackhawks, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

Krejci wasn't expected to play after he took part in extra work with the healthy scratches after the Bruins' morning skate. He'll aim for a return to the lineup Saturday against the Senators.

Krejci (groin) isn't considered likely to play Thursday against the Blackhawks, Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports.

Krejci created optimism about a potential return to action after he was able to practice fully the previous two days, but it appears the Bruins are proceeding slowly with the center's recovery after he was limited to just two games in November. The team activated Zdeno Chara (knee) from IR earlier in the day but didn't do the same for Krejci, indicating that he'll remain sidelined. Barring a last-second change of heart from the team in activating Krejci, look for him to target a return over the weekend against the Senators.

Krejci's (groin) status for Thursday's game against Chicago has yet to be determined.

Krejci practiced both Tuesday and Wednesday, with the Bruins' official site noting that the center is in line to meet with doctors after Thursday's morning skate to discuss his playing status. While Krejci is clearly progressing, we wouldn't be surprised if the team erred on the side of caution with him, with an eye toward avoiding another injury setback.
