Bruins Defenseman Torey Krug Not Among Finalists For Calder Trophy

The NHL announced its three finalists Wednesday for the Calder Trophy, given annually to the league’s top rookie. Leading the trio is 18-year-old Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon, whom most believe will take home the award in a landslide. The first overall pick in the 2013 NHL draft, MacKinnon led all rookies in nearly every offensive category this season, including...

Torey Krug On Bruins Starting Playoffs: ‘It’s Like Christmas Right Now’

Torey Krug is so excited to begin his second playoff run with the Boston Bruins that he compared it to Christmas morning. If Friday night’s Game 1 wasn’t enough reason for a young player like Krug to be full of anticipation, he’s also going up against the team he grew up loving in the Detroit Red Wings. Krug, a Livonia, Mich, native, remembers people in his neighborhood honking...

More on the Rangers signing of Mat Bodie & the comparison to Torey Krug

Yesterday, the Rangers signed Union College defenseman Mat Bodie. At first glance, I really like the signing. Well, let me clarify. I like the idea of the signing. After all, Bodie was a standout on the best squad in college hockey this season and the Rangers organizationally have woefully few puck moving defensemen. Plus (and I will keep beating this drum) the Rangers really need...

Torey Krug’s Family Won’t Travel To Boston, Ready For Games In Detroit

There will be a full crowd at the TD Garden when the Bruins take on the Detroit Red Wings in Games 1 and 2 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. But Bruins defenseman Torey Krug’s family will not be a part of it. Krug is from suburban Detroit, so his family will be attending Games 3 and 4, and Game 6 if necessary, at the Joe Louis Arena.

Rookie Of The Year

For most of the season I have been picking Torey Krug as the Calder Trophy leader.  He has been the top rookie defenceman this year.  He has been the power play point man for the best team in the NHL.  His problem in the Calder Trophy race is that he doesn't get the playing time of most top defencemen.  This is in part because he plays on a team with workhorse Zdeno Chara...

Bruins, Torey Krug Fall Victim To Questionable Holding Call (GIF)

The Boston Bruins are getting frustrated with how the last two games have gone. Their biggest source of frustration, however, goes a little bit deeper than just having lost two in a row. The B’s are starting to get frustrated with the officiating, which played a big role in Boston’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night. Nazem Kadri scored a power-play...

Boston Bruins: Torey Krug: Is he the real deal?

Every hockey season there always seems to be a younger player who rises above what’s expected of him, and performs at a level that people couldn’t see coming. This past season for the Bruins, that player would be Torey Krug, who was thrown into the fire of the post-season, and took the league by storm.  Did he find himself making rookie mistakes throughout his run? There is...
