Early this morning, Peter Chiarelli announced the Boston Bruins have signed Torey Krug to a one-year contract extension. Read more from the Bruins press release here.
Krug was signed to a $3,400,000 extension that will keep him here through the 2015-16 season.
Although Krug burst onto the scene in 2012-13, as many fans will recall his back-to-back goal performances against the New York Rangers, it was the 2013-14 season in which he officially became a rookie. He appeared in 79 games in his first full year with the team. Krug scored 14 goals and had 26 assists to cap off a strong rookie campaign. His 26 assists that year had him ranked first among the Bruins D-core. He also finished first in points for NHL rookie defensemen and was named to the 2013-14 All-Rookie Team.
Last season during the playoff run, albeit a short playoff run, Krug led all Bruins in scoring with 10 points. In his brief NHL career, he has shown a knack for showing up in important postseason games.
