TOREY KRUG WRITES HEARTFELT FAREWELL TO BOSTON

Torey Krug hasn't said much since it was announced he would no longer be playing for the Boston Bruins, the only NHL team he has suited up for in his career. The 29-year-old, however, has broken his silence in a lengthy Instagram post where he said his goodbyes to fans of the Bruins, as well as his former teammates.

"I am so grateful that Melanie and I could call Boston home for the last 8 years. I have no words to describe how much the city, my teammates, and the fans mean to us. The truth is, I was never a fan of these types of posts but felt it necessary as my only means to connect with you guys."

"Thank you to the Bruins organization for the opportunity to grow as a player and a person. Thank you to my teammates for the amazing memories and what will be lifelong bonds. Thank you to the fans and the community for embracing my family as one of your own."

"I truly feel terrible that I couldn’t help bring another Stanley Cup to Boston but I leave with some amazing memories and having played with Hall of Famers on some truly special teams. I wanted to share a few pictures of some of these memories but couldn’t manage to keep the pictures to a minimum. So here you go.."

Krug was not drafted by the Bruins, instead signing an entry-level contract with the team out of the U.S. college hockey system back in 2012 when he was 21-years-old. In his first full season in Boston, the blueliner scored 14 goals and recorded 40 points in 79 games. He was headed for his fifth season in a row in 2019-20 with 50 points or more before the NHL suspended play back in March. Krug had 49 points at the time.



After nine seasons in Boston, Krug signed a seven-year, $45.5 million deal with the St. Louis Blues this month.
