Boston Bruins forward David Krejci looks like he is nearing an imminent return to the lineup based on his full participation in practice on Wednesday. Krejci took contact in that practice and joined a four-forward rotation on the second line with Ryan Spooner, Loui Eriksson and Matt Beleskey, according to a WEEI report.
Krejci also practiced with the Bruins’ top power play unit, another sign that he is very close to returning. But the 29-year-old told the media after practice that he is waiting until he is 100 percent to return and will not come back if he is anything less than fully healed.
