WATCH: Bruins Krug On Leadership and a DeBrusk Photobomb




BOSTON — Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug went one-on-one with Boston Hockey Now. Krug is embracing the role of being a conduit leader between the 2011 Stanley Cup core and the youth that has filtered in over the last few years.

“I came in right after they won the Cup, been to two finals and come up short now,” Krug said. “Obviously coming within one game of winning it, I can understand what it takes to win and want to be part of that group that’s won before.”

Krug had 53 points (6g, 47a) in just 64 games last season. After trade rumors swirled for a couple of years, Krug inserted himself into the Bruins future plans. Krug remains unsigned beyond this season, but the Bruins have a significant interest in signing Krug long term.

“I serve as that bridge between the younger group that’s come in and trying to establish themselves as the next group of leaders. Obviously, our current veteran group, the older guys, and I take a lot of pride in relating to guys in the locker room, Krug said. “It doesn’t matter what age you are, what you’re background is, I tend to go have dinner with everyone at some point in the season, and I have that connection with everyone.”

Krug also discussed the team’s center depth as a teammate and forward Jake DeBrusk came in for a little photobomb!

With 20 years of experience (SiriusXM NHL Network Radio, ESPNBoston, NESN,, etc.) covering the Bruins, the NHL, NCAA and junior hockey and more, Jimmy Murphy’s hockey black book is full of Hall of Famers, current players, coaches, management, scouts and a wide array of hockey media personalities that have lived in and around this great game. For 17 of his 20 years as a hockey and sports reporter, Murph covered the Bruins on essentially a daily basis covering their victorious 2011 Stanley Cup run and their 2013 run to the Final as well. Murphy has hosted national and local radio shows and podcasts and also has experience in TV as well.
