“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.”
