Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- David Krejci
David Krejci was born April 28, 1986 in Sternberk, Czech Republic. Boston's first pick, 63rd overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Krejci is a graduate of the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympique.

After spending a year with Klando Jr. in the Czech league, the offensively talented Krejci would tally a staggering 144 points in two seasons with Gatineau. Following his junior career in the Q, he spent most of his first professional season in Providence, Boston's AHL affiliate. That season, Krejci would lead Providence in points with 74 and was recalled by the Bruins on three occasions.

On the international stage, Krejci represented the Czech Republic twice in the World Junior Championships earning a Bronze medal, and once at the World Championships in 2008.

2008-09 would be a breakout season for Krejci. He exploded for 73 in a predominantly playmaking role, propelling the Bruins to finish the regular season first in the Eastern Conference.

In 2010 Krejci was part of the Czech national team at the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.

The 2010-11 season was another good one for Krejci. He co-led the Bruins with 62 points in the regular season and helped the club to a third place finish in the Eastern Conference.

In the 2011 playoffs, the Bruins survived a first round scare from the Montreal Canadiens, steamrolled over the Philladelphia Flyers and endured a seven game battle with the Tampa Bay Lightning en route to the Stanley Cup Final where they would take on the powerful Vancouver Canucks.

The Bruins would defeat the Canucks in a seven game classic, winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1972. Krejci would once again lead the way offensively for the Bruins with a playoff-high 23 points.

Krejci would represent the Czech Republic at the 2014 Olympic Games. In five tournament games he scored a goal and added a pair of assists, helping his homeland to sixth place finish.

Though limited to just 72 games during the 2015-16 season, Krejci still managed to put up solid offensive totals. With 17 goals and 46 assists, his 63 points were the second most recorded by any Bruins skater. The following season Krejci recorded the third 20-goal season of his career, finding the back of the net 23 times to go along with 31 assists for 54 points.
