Per an NHL source, longtime #NHLBruins center David Krejci will announce his retirement from the NHL and field hockey in general ‘very soon’ but could still represent Czechia in the 2024 World Championships.

Following the Bruins’ elimination in the first round of the latest playoffs, we suspected that we might be witnessing the end of an era. Retirement rumors surrounding Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci were rife, and you had to wonder if they’d played their last NHL game.
Without being a huge surprise (although the fact that he won’t be playing in Europe next year is a small one), this confirms that a big page of history is being turned in Boston. In Bergeron and Krejci, the Bruins have just lost two players who have marked the last two decades in town.
At the same time, it confirms that the Bears have a major hole at center. Currently, Pavel Zacha and Charlie Coyle are the two best center players in town and, without wanting to take anything away from them, we’re nowhere near the caliber of Bergeron and Krejci.
Money is tight in Boston (there’s only $429,166 left under the salary cap), but I can’t believe the club isn’t trying to close a deal for a guy like Mark Scheifele and Elias Lindholm, who seem to be available.
What will the Ducks’ season look like next year?
