The Boston Bruins signed center David Krejci to a three-year contract extension Thursday. Financial terms of the deal, which will carry Krejci through the 2014-15 season, were not released. TSN, however is reporting the contract will have an annual value of $5.25 million.

Krejci, 25, has 4 goals and 9 assists in 20 games this season, and in 318 NHL games in six seasons with the Bruins, he has 62 goals and 165 points. He's led the team in scoring each of the last two seasons.

Last season Krejci played a major role in the Bruins winning their first Stanley Cup since 1972. He had 13 goals and 62 points during the regular season, and then led the League with 12 goals and 23 points in the playoffs. Four of his goals were game-winners, including each of the first three games of the Bruins' second-round sweep of the Philadelphia Flyers. He also had the primary assist on Nathan Horton's series-clinching goal in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
