Chalk up another honor received by the Bruins. The NHL All-Rookie Team was announced last night, and it features the Bruins' little man with a big shot, Torey Krug. The 23-year-old offensive-defenseman put up solid numbers in his rookie season, making a name for himself around the league. He led all rookie defensemen in goals (14), assists (26), points (40), as well as all power-play categories, racking up 6 goals, 13 assists, for 19 points on the man-advantage. He now holds the spot for third all-time in goal-scoring by a Bruins' rookie defenseman, right behind Ray Bourque and Greg Hawgood, who scored 17 and 16 goals their rookie seasons, respectively.
