“He’s a two-time captain of Michigan State, was a lone captain as a sophomore. The kid’s got tremendous character. He’s not a big player, but he’s got a lot of heart,” Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said of Krug. “He’s a really good skater, has a very good head on his shoulders, sees the game very well and he passes the puck well. He’s a mature player.”MORE NEWS: NH Motor Speedway Mass Vaccination Site Aims To Administer 12,000 J&J Shots Over 3 Days
