According to Boston Herald, Krejci has been nursing a hip joint injury. The center has so far not played two games. The player seemed to be fit when Bruins clashed with Edmonton last Thursday.
However, his failure to show up for practice is sending mixed signals because Bruins need to prepare for their clash with New Jersey on Monday. There is actually little time left before the face off.
As a matter of fact, there is a day that has been reserved between today and Monday. Even coach Claude Julien does not know what to expect from his most reliable center.
“His status is what it is right now,” said Claude Julien. “I don’t even know what his status is (for today), to be honest. We’re just anticipating that he’ll be fine here eventually.
“Our medical staff is going to be dealing with that. We’ve got one of the best medical staffs in the league here in Boston. I think it’s just a matter of giving him time. I anticipate him being fine. We’ve just got to give it a little bit of time.”
Krejci has already faced the surgeon's knife to correct his hip. Hip injuries are dreaded by most players because they can easily spell doom to their career.
If Bruins will not have the center on Monday and in the forthcoming matches, they will have to work extra hard because they will not be having an edge.
“He’s one of our best players,” said center Chris Kelly. “You can’t fill that void. He does everything well and at such a high level. You just hope that whatever it is, it’s nothing serious and he’s back soon.”
Bruins must have felt relieved when their defenseman, Torey Krug, turned up for practice. The player has been away following an injury on his finger.
Krug said that he is recovering slowly and will soon be fit to play. He added that he can not promise that he will perform as expected when his finger has not healed.
“It definitely creates some challenges, but it’s feeling good,” said Krug. “I’m comfortable with it right now. As long as it keeps progressing, I’ll feel good with it.
"So far, so good. I’m trying to take baby steps out there: No one-timers or anything crazy yet. I play a skill game, so obviously the hands are a big part of it. It’s a little adjustment, but I’ll be all right.
David Warsofsky has also left a vacuum at Bruins following an injury on his groin muscle on Thursday.
It is anticipated that he will not be able to play for the next three weeks.
