RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Krug, who underwent right shoulder surgery on April 21, is coming off a 2015-16 campaign in which he recorded 44 points in 81 games. His recovery will need to be monitored in training camp, but when healthy, Krug is a key cog on the Bís power play and thus maintains fantasy utility. Krug racked up 244 shots last season, a figure that placed him third on the team behind only Patrice Bergeron (282) and Brad Marchand (250) in that category. With a few more bounces in his favor, Krug could have easily hit double-digit goals for the third straight year, but he was nonetheless a capable sparkplug for the teamís attack. The mobile blueliner, who holds his own defensively, was rewarded for his efforts by the Bís this offseason, as he inked a four-year, $21 million extension at the ripe age of 25.

2015-16

With the Bruins having parted ways with Johnny Boychuk and Dougie Hamilton, respectively, over the past two offseasons, the team will lean even more heavily on Krug, after a 2014-15 season in which he recorded 39 points (including 12 goals) in 78 games. In the wake of the teamís heavy personnel shake-up, Krug will remain a mainstay on the Bís blue line as well as a key power-play cog. It's an assignment that will keep him squarely on the fantasy radar, and presumably, with room for further ascension as he opens his third full season at the NHL level. When he is on his game, the 5-foot-9, 181-pound Krug can be offensive dynamo for the Bruins, though given his stature, he has some defensive limitations. Even so, those flaws are somewhat offset by his scrappy and fearless mindset, supplemented by quickness and solid positioning. On the attack, Krug is an excellent puck mover, who uses his fleet wheels, shiftiness, and inventive passing to create scoring opportunities for both himself and teammates. That package of offensive skills is further complemented by Krugís deceptively dangerous shot, as well as his high compete/energy level. His star remains on the rise.

2014-15

The 5-foot-9, 181-pound Krug emerged as an offensive dynamo for the Bruins in his first full NHL season, recording 14 goals and 40 points in 79 games. He is an excellent puck-mover, using his fleet wheels, shiftiness and clever passing touch to create scoring opportunities for himself and teammates. Moreover, the 23-year-old Krug owns a deceptively dangerous shot, with all of the above making him a key cog on the Bruinsí power play, a unit that he helped perk up last season. With his prowess on offense no longer flying under the radar, those looking to secure Krug in their fantasy drafts this season will need to be aggressive. From a defensive standpoint, Krugís propensity for offensive advancement occasionally leads to some dicey defensive situations, but in general, he holds his own as a scrappy and fearless blueliner, relying on quickness, smarts and positioning to more than adequately fulfill duties on his own end.

2013-14

When injuries hit the Bruinsí 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.

2012-13

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.
