Bruins’ Krug: ‘I’ll have to probably prepare for free agency


Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug doesn’t know where he’ll play beyond this season but understands he may have to consider finding a new team. “I don’t really know what’s going to happen,” Krug said, according to The Athletic’s Fluto Shinzawa. “I’m just trying to take it day by day and worry about the playoffs right now. I’ll have to probably prepare for free agency. Then we’ll see what happens there. In terms of what’s going on with the Bruins and everything else, that’s probably a question for someone else.” The 29-year-old would be among the best defensemen available if he does hit unrestricted free agency at the conclusion of the season.

Krug, who has spent his entire career with the Bruins, added that his mindset is different now to when he signed his last contract in 2016. “My priorities have changed quite a bit,” Krug said. “To be a husband and to be a father, it’s quite a different change in where your priorities lie. You have to think about schools. You have to think about quality of life. Living in certain climates, things like that. They’re all something you take into consideration. We’ll see.
