Torey Krug: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
When injuries hit the Bruins’ blue line in the playoffs, Krug was a revelation, holding his own defensively, while provided a spark to the B's attack. He finished up the playoffs with four goals and six points in 15 games and appears poised to spend the entire 2013-14 campaign with the big club. At 5-foot-9, 180 he relies on smarts, positioning and quickness to fulfill his defensive responsibilities. When he has the puck, he can be a dynamic puck mover, using his wheels and deft passing touch to create scoring opportunities. Krug owns a dangerous shot, too, and if he can secure a power player role in his first full season with the Bruins, Krug could emerge as a fantasy factor.
Krug played in two games with the Bruins this past season after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State, recording an assist. With the cycling out of Joe Corvo, Greg Zanon and Mike Mottau, there is an opportunity for Krug to make the B's roster out of camp, especially if injuries hit leading up to the regular season. If he ends up starting with AHL Providence, however, Krug would be a candidate for an in-season call-up. Though he's undersized at 5-9 and 180 pounds, Krug is mobile and has some upside as an offensive defenseman down the road, so he's definitely worth tracking.
