David Krejci to wear Andrew Ference’s ‘A’ for Bruins

Posted By DJ Bean On October 1, 2013 @ 3:45 pm In General | 3 Comments

David Krejci [1] will share the Bruins’ second ‘A’ with Chris Kelly [2] this season, Claude Julien [3] told reporters at the team’s practice in Vermont [4] Tuesday.

Krejci gets the share of the distinction after Andrew Ference [5] split it with Chris Kelly [2] for the last two seasons. Ference was not brought back by the Bruins in the offseason, and he has since been named captain of the Oilers [6].

Originally taken by the B’s in the second round of the 2004 draft, Krejci has been the team’s first-line center for three seasons and has twice led the entire postseason in scoring. He did so in 2011 with 23 points and last postseason with 26 points.

In 424 career regular-season games, Krejci has 91 goals and 218 assists for 309 points. He is entering the second season of a three-year, $5.25 million contract.
