Found September 20, 2013 on The Awesome Boston:
A.B. At a small-for-the-NHL-size of 5′ 9″, 175 lbs, Boston Bruins defenseman, Torey Krug, apparently isn’t afraid to drop the gloves. In last night’s preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings, Krug pounded on the 6′ 0″, 185 lbs Centerman, David McIntyre. The fight started with Krug cross checking McIntyre to the ice, followed by an exchange of gloves to the face and dangerously high sticks. By the time McIntyre was ready to drop the gloves, Krug had already pounced; unleashing a barrage of haymakers to the back of his head.

Torey Krug Fights David McIntyre in Loss to Red Wings, Shows Off Seldom-Seen Pugilistic Side (Video)

Torey Krug isn’t exactly known as a fighter. Standing just 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds, the Bruins defenseman isn’t exactly a heavyweight, either. On Thursday night, however, the puck-moving, power-play specialist showed off a different side of his game seldom seen to this point in his NHL career.

Gregory Campbell ‘Very Grateful’ to Return, But Ready to Move On and Focus On Season

BOSTON — The last time Gregory Campbell was seen on TD Garden ice, he was hobbling off the ice, barely making it to the bench. He had broken his leg, of course, after blocking a shot in the Eastern Conference finals, ending his season. On Thursday night, Campbell was back on the Garden ice quite literally taking the next step in his recovery from that broken leg he suffered blocking...

NESN’s Back in Black and Gold Tour Goes All Over New England Preparing Bruins Fans for New Season (Video)
