BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- David Krejci rebounded from a frustrating 2016-17 season to total 44 points and a plus-10 rating in 64 games last year.
Bruins begin their new season tonight, and the 13th-year center and former playoff hero's hoping to pick up where he left off on a line projected to feature youngsters Jake DeBrusk and Danton Heinen.
General manager Don Sweeney offered his expectations for Krejci.
"When David's healthy, he's a very highly productive player," Sweeney said. "Elite offensive skills, processes the game at a high, high level. He runs our second unit, which people might think is a bit of a slap or a step backward, but it really is not, because we need balance in both units, and he takes ownership of that second group."
B's and Capitals drop the puck tonight at 7:30 p.m. in D.C. Hear more from Sweeney below.
