Well, another door closed in Boston Bruins hopes that David Krejci is going to return to the Black and Gold.
The 35-year-old playmaking center has solid his Charlestown brownstone home for $4.046 million, a number perfect sale price for No. 46 that finished above the $3.999 million initial asking price for the 4,516 square foot five-bedroom home. Clearly Krejci selling his home doesn’t completely rule out a return to Boston sometime in the future, but one would assume he’d want to hold onto a home in Boston if he had intentions of settling into the city for an extended amount of time again.
The talk in Charlestown is that it’s the highest sale total for a home residence there in at least the last 30 years, so at least Krejci has that going for him.
Meanwhile, it’s clear by the Krejci family social media account that the family is enjoying the Czech Republic while Krejci is dominating for his hometown Olomouc team. Krejci leads the Czech League with 12 goals (seven goals, five assists) in eight games and won over Kladno on Thursday in a matchup against former B’s teammate Jaromir Jagr.

Meanwhile in Boston, David Pastrnak is now on the lookout for somebody else in Boston Bruins uniform he can have some fun with during warmups now that his buddy Krejci is gone.
