No Surprise Boston Bruins’ David Krejci Named to Czech Republic Olympic Team

There was no surprise when Boston Bruins center David Krejci was named to the Czech Republic Olympic ice hockey team. Krejci has had one heck of a season this far for the Bruins. He has taken full advantage of skating on a line with Milan Lucic and Jarome Iginla this year, and his Olympic style of play has been the perfect complement to the physical bruisers that he has been skating with.

Krejci was named to the Czech Republic Olympic team in 2010 where he registered two goals, an assist and a minus-two rating. The minus-two rating is uncharacteristic for the center man. This year for the Bruins, Krejci has registered nine goals, 27 assists, 36 points and is a plus-16. Krejci’s season so far with the Bruins has been more than worthy of a spot on the Olympic team.

It will be interesting to see how the Olympic style of play affects Krejci when he comes back from Sochi at the end of the tournament. The Olympic game suits Krejci better than most players. It’s less physical, there is more room to skate and there is more room to create. For a playmaker like Krejci, the Olympic game provides the perfect opportunity to showcase his strengths. Unfortunately he will not be playing with the caliber of players that he plays with in Boston, but either way Krejci should be able to represent his club and his country well in the Olympics.

The tall dude told the little guy not to touch his coat again multiple times and he didn’t listen. Maybe if the Bruins were playing a little better on the ice, these guys would be talking about the game instead of beating each other up.
