Krug (upper body) won't play Thursday against LA, Joe McDonald of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Krug was considered doubtful for Thursday's contest after suffering an upper-body injury during Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Anaheim, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. His absence will leave a glaring hole on Boston's blue line Thursday, as he's been red-hot lately, racking up two goals and seven assists in his last eight games. He'll hope to overcome his ailment in time for Saturday's matchup with San Jose.

Krug (undisclosed) is doubtful to play Thursday versus the Kings, Joe McDonald of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The diminutive scoring defenseman departed late in Wednesday night's contest. Assuming he's up for grabs in daily pools, Rob O'Gara could wind up being a surprisingly good daily play as Krug's replacement due to his proficiency in shot blocking. There's still a thread of hope that Krug will play, but if not, look for towering blueliner Zdeno Chara to see a bit more time on the man advantage than usual.

Krug (unspecified injury) was forced out of Wednesday night's game against the Ducks late in the third period.

EDGE Analysis

Krug's status for Thursday night's contest against the Kings will thus need to be monitored. If he's unable to suit up, Rob O'Gara, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday, is on hand to join the Bruins' blue line mix.

Krug stretched his point streak to seven games and nine points with an assist in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Krug also took a beating from the fast and aggressive Buds, who landed hit after hit on the diminutive defender. He kept bouncing back up, but this kind of physical abuse could eventually take a toll.

Krug recorded two assists in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

The undersized defenseman has a goal and five points in his last three games. While it's unreasonable to expect him to continue producing at that rate, he's a gifted puck-moving defenseman who has considerable value in all formats.

Krug recorded two assists, two shots and a plus-2 rating through 18:29 of ice time during Thursday's 2-1 win over Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a respectable start to the season for Krug, as he has two goals and three assists through 10 games. However, it's worth noting his ice time is down from the 21:36 per game he averaged over the previous two years. Krug projects to continue quarterbacking the No. 1 power-play unit, and he did miss time to start the campaign, so it's probably best to remain patient with the established fantasy asset.

Krug drove in a one-timer Monday, but it wasn't enough as the Bruins lost to the Blue Jackets on the road, 4-3 in the shootout.

EDGE Analysis

This was the second goal of the season for Krug, who's otherwise been struggling on both ends of the ice. The Michigan native, who sustained a broken jaw in preseason but only missed the season opener, entered this latest contest with just two goals, an assist and minus-3 rating through 10 games.

Krug (jaw) was activated from injured reserve and is eligible to play Monday against Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

The team had already given positive indications that puck-moving blueliner would be ready for Monday's game, in addition to Krug's full-participation in practice since Saturday. While no official word has been given that Krug will be in Monday's lineup, rookie defender Matt Grzelcyk was reassigned to AHL Providence in a corresponding move -- all but confirming Krug's return Monday.

Krug (jaw) is considered a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

Though the mobile blueliner's official status for the contest may not be confirmed until line rushes, it looks like he will suit up, with coach Bruce Cassidy indicating Sunday that he assumes Krug "will be good" to go Monday. In such a scenario, Matt Grzelcyk is likely to be the odd man out of the B's back line mix.

Krug (face) was on the ice without a non-contact jersey Saturday morning.

EDGE Analysis

Full participation in the a.m. skate suggests that the puck-moving blueliner's return is imminent, but the original timeline for his return was set for Monday's game at home against the Avalanche. As soon it's officially announced that Krug will return, fantasy owners will be rushing to get him back into lineups as he's a terrific playmaker -- he notched eight goals and 43 assists in 81 games last regular season.
