David Krejci playing all-around game

Top scorer excelling in all three zones

WILMINGTON — The letter David Krejci earned before the season was a reward. Krejci is the Bruins’ No. 1 center and most imaginative playmaker. Last season, Krejci was the team’s leading scorer in the playoffs (9-17—26), like he was in 2010-11, when he had 12 goals and 11 assists for 23 points.

But the alternate captain’s “A” was also a carrot. The Bruins knew that while Krejci is a postseason moneymaker, he had that much more to give in the regular season. Krejci, along with former linemates Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton, dipped into valleys. The letter would serve as a sign of faith. The organization knew Krejci could become an even better 82-game player.
