David Krejci announces when he'll make decision on future

Could this be it for the veteran?



The historic season for the Boston Bruins came to an absolutely stunning end on Sunday evening, as they lost their Round 1 series against the Florida Panthers in a heartbreaking setback that culminated in a Game 7 overtime loss at TD Garden. 

Immediately afterward, speculation began to grow that it may have been the final NHL games for the likes of veteran forwards Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci; Bergeron embraced his teammates on the ice before saluting the fans, which many interpreted as his saying goodbye. 

Meanwhile, Krejci's future in Boston also remains up in the air. He was lured back to the Bruins this summer after spending a year playing in his native homeland, and appeared in 70 games while racking up 16 goals and 40 assists. But how much more does he have in the tank at age 37? 

"Yeah I'm gonna obviously - there's lots to think about. I'm gonna go home soon, talk to my family," Krejci said Tuesday from Warrior Ice Arena during Boston's end of season media availability sessions. "But definitely want to make a decision soon."

The sting of Boston's shocking upset loss to the Panthers is still fresh in the minds of all of the players, so it's understandable that Krejci isn't ready to make his decision so soon afterward. 

"Yeah I mean, those are things - like I said, I'm gonna get away from this, because everything's really raw right now and I don't want to make any decisions that I'm gonna regret," he said. "So yeah, I've just gotta get away from everything and really clear my head and think some things over to figure it out."

Krejci also didn't disclose any specific information as to the physical ailment that limited him to only appearing in four of the seven postseason games. Like Krejci, Bergeron was also limited by injury, as was goaltender Linus Ullmark.
