Recent trade rumors have been the talk of the town and David Krejci was in the middle of them until Thursday, when the Bruins signed him to a three-year extension that will keep him a Bruin through 2015.
There had been a lot of talk about trading Krejci for Bobby Ryan of the Anahiem Ducks.
This is the final year of Krejci’s previous contract, which calls for a $4 million salary this year. The new deal will bump him up to $5.25 million per season.
Krejci’s play early in the season has been below par, as he has only with 13 points in 20 games. David had one of his best games of the season Wednesday night in Toronto, though, finishing with three points on the night.
Krejci’s best hockey came last year in the playoffs, when he led the Bruins with 23 points.
With Krejci getting $5.25 million, it will be interesting to see what the Bruins sign Tyler Seguin for when his rookie contract is up. But for now, the Bruins are in great shape with good young players like Krejci signed for the next few years.
