David Krejci of the Boston Bruins is a smooth skater, visionary passer, and lethal scorer. Although he weighs less than 180 pounds (tiny for an NHL centre), his offensive gifts make him Boston’s #1 centre. His production increases when the stakes are highest – in 2011, during the Bruins’ Stanley Cup-winning playoff run, Krejci was the leading playoff goal scorer, and in 2013, he again sits atop the NHL in playoff scoring. He’s also a first-rate defensive player and won the NHL’s plus-minus award in 2009. Internationally, he stars for the Czech National Team.
