Another Boston Bruins forward announces their retirement

Just weeks ago Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron announced his retirement from the National Hockey League. This decision left the Bruins with a significant hole to fill in their lineup. Today however, that hole got a little deeper as 15-year NHL veteran. David Krejci also announced his retirement.

Krejci has spent his entire career with the Bruins previously hoisting the Stanley Cup with the franchise. The center took a year off from the league before returning last year to be part of the Bruins historic season.

Krejci issued the following statement:

After 15 full NHL seasons I have decided to retire from the best league in the world.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cam Neely and for allowing me to take my time with my decision and Don Sweeney announcement.

I also want to thank the Jacobs family and the entire Bruins organization for believing in me over and over again and giving me the opportunity to be part of this amazing family for so many years.

When I was drafted in 2004, I had no idea that I would be working with such incredible and driven people who would lead us to 3 Stanley Cup Finals, and winning the ultimate goal in 2011.

I have made so many great friendships throughout the organization. You have always been there for me whenever I needed something and I will always be here for you.

Congratulations to Krejci on an incredible career.
