Krejci was injured in a collision with Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan near the end of the second period of the Senators' 3-1 home win on Sunday. Krejci did not play in the third period. Shortly after his teammates left the ice here Monday, Krejci left the arena with his right arm in a sling.
He was placed on injured reserve, so he will not be available to the Bruins when they host the Montreal Canadiens in the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro on Friday (1 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).
Montreal has been in need of veteran goaltending depth in the absence of Carey Price, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner. Price has been out since Nov. 25 after he sustained his second lower-body injury of the season. The Canadiens have used rookie Mike Condon and backup Dustin Tokarski in his absence. There is no timeline on when Price will return.
Scrivens, 29, was with Bakersfield of the American Hockey League, but he was the No. 1 goalie for the Oilers in 2014-15, when he was 15-26-11 with a 3.16 goals-against average and .890 save percentage. He also played for the Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Scrivens is 42-56-17 with seven shutouts, a 2.90 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 129 NHL regular-season games.
"I'm definitely happy with how things played out," Scrivens said of the trade. "Definitely happy to get a new chance and a chance to play in the NHL again."
Gaudreau led the NHL with five goals in two games to help the Flames (17-16-2, 36 points) set a franchise record with their 11th consecutive victory on home ice. He opened the week with his third career hat trick – and second of the month (also Dec. 4 vs. BOS: 3-1—4) – in a 4-1 triumph over the Winnipeg Jets Dec. 22. Gaudreau then scored twice, including the game-winning goal, in a 5-3 comeback victory over the Edmonton Oilers Dec. 27. The 22-year-old Salem, N.J., native paces the Flames and shares sixth in the NHL in both goals (17) and points (39) in 35 appearances this season. His five game-winning goals are one shy of the League lead (Joe Pavelski: 6).
"Obviously you guys are all aware of the situation that occurred, or that's going on right now," Kane said Monday. "There's not a whole lot I can say. I just want to say I've done nothing wrong; I look forward to clearing my name. I respect the legal process and, unfortunately at this time, there's not much more I can talk about."
The Buffalo News reported Kane is the subject of a sex-offense investigation relating to an alleged incident at a Buffalo hotel on Sunday morning.
