SHENZHEN, China - When word came down last spring that my teammates and I would be headed to China for the 2018 O.R.G. NHL China Games, I must admit to being a bit curious as to how all of this was going to work.

As the details emerged, however, I quickly realized what a great opportunity it would be to see the other side of the world while playing the sport I love so much. I've always had an interest in coming to China - though I never really thought it would come to fruition.

Despite his impressive accomplishments, Cassidy is not, in fact, a superhero.

BOSTON - David Krejci has been a Boston Bruin his entire career, first donning the Spoked-B in 2006-07. During his time in Boston, the forward has centered lines with numerous world-class players. This season will be no exception.

Following Friday's session, interest was heavily favored towards who might be slated on the right side of the second line with Krejci in the middle and Jake DeBrusk on his left.
