Boston Bruins center David Krejci continued to be the glue on the 2nd line.
David Krejci isn’t the flashiest of players. If he was he would be getting talked about like the members of the Boston Bruins first line. Krejci still puts up his numbers and continues to be one of the best scorers on the B’s.
Krejci had an okay season in 2018. He ended up being the Bruins 4th best goal scorer with 17 goals. It wasn’t great, but Krejci seems to always get things done. Krejci only played in 64 games as he was dealing with a nagging upper-body injury.
Still, Krejci held things together for the Bruins 2nd line. With wingers moving up and down Krejci made sure that everything was set straight. At times Krejci was working with two rookies. His veteran experience helped the young players play relaxed and learn how to play the game at the NHL level.

Krejci has a meticulous game. He may not be the fastest of skaters, but he has a great wrist shot. On the powerplay, Krejci is one of the Bruins biggest weapons. Like David Pastrnak, Krejci is money when he is on the receiving end of a one-timer. Krejci is also a supreme passer and knows how to weave his way through defenders.
Krejci needs to improve next season
Now even though Krejci was one of the Bruins top scorers, he needs to be better next season. Hopefully, Krejci will be healthier and that will improve his numbers. The hope would be that next season Krejci will boost his assist numbers. With Jake DeBrusk coming off a great rookie campaign, he and Krejci will look to become a dangerous duo. If the Bruins can find a solid winger on the other side they will build their depth. If the B’s can have a dominant two lines they will be one of the best teams in the league.
David Krejci didn’t light up the league in 2018, but he made sure that the Bruins had a strong 2nd line no matter who he was playing with.
