June 4th, 2013 – With a strong showing in the 2013 postseason (4G, 2A in 7GP), Torey Krug is making a statement. His 15.47 avg. ice time with 3.14 min on the power play shows he is earning the trust of Claude Julien. His play has been nothing short of spectacular. The poise and confidence showed by the youngster was also noted by Julien in a postgame interview. With Andrew Ference likely out of Boston with the cap going down in 2013-2014 and some key players contract kicking in (Lucic, Seguin, Rask, Marchand), Torey Krug will be a full-timer next year, with the following 5 defensemen: Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuk, McQuaid and Hamilton. Look for him to post good numbers in 2013-2014 if the confidence level remains the same. He might be the partner of the future cornerstone for Boston, Mr.Hamilton. - Samuel Chretien
May 2012 – Krug is not the biggest blue liner although he uses his skating ability and vision most effective. He signed with Bruins immediately after Michigan St. (CCHA) was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament in March 2012. Krug earned first team NCAA All-American honors. He captained the Spartans as a junior and Boston is high on Krug’s character, energy, and intensity. He is certainly an offensive defenseman but will need to increase his strength to withstand the nightly physical battles to become a constant in the NHL. - Russ Bitely
Fantasy Outlook: B+
Krug has the potential to become a top four defenseman pairing with offensive upside in his game.
Torey Krug earns his first NHL point with an assist for the Bruins on 4/5/2012.
