David Krejci, Torey Krug out several months after surgery

The Boston Bruins announced some significant injury news on Tuesday. Since it’s May, we suppose it’s good news. Outside of the whole “missing the playoffs allows for longer recovery time” thing. 

Center David Krejci is expected to have five months of recovery time after surgery on his left hip. He led the Bruins with 46 assists and was tied for second on the team with 63 points.

Not for nothing, but he had three goals in his last 23 games this season.

“It’s been bothering me for 20 or so games,” Krejci said during the team’s breakup-day media availability at TD Garden, via NESN. “I felt like I was still in decent shape to play games and help the team, and there’s been games where I’ve felt pretty good."

His hope is that he’s ready not only for Bruins camp, but for the World Cup of Hockey, having been named to the Czech Republic team.  

Krug, meanwhile, had right shoulder surgery and will need six months to recover. Krug had career highs with 81 games played, 40 assists, 44 points and 33 penalty minutes.

He had two goals from Dec. 5 to the end of the season.

Krug was in consideration for a spot on Team USA for the World Cup of Hockey, but this recovery schedule means he could miss that tournament and the start of the regular season.

Meanwhile, forward Matt Beleskey has surgery on his left hand and will need six weeks to recover. He established career highs with 80 games played, 22 assists, 37 points and 65 penalty minutes.

Speedy recovery for all involved. Binge watch “The Affair” on Showtime. It’s fantastic!
