Boston Bruins center David Krejci retires from the NHL for the second time. And, like Tom Brady, his retirement is expected to be his last.

“After 15 full seasons in the National Hockey League, I have decided to retire from the best league in the world,” Krejci wrote in a statement released Monday morning by the Bruins.

Krejci was selected by the Bruins in the second round of the 2004 NHL Draft and spent the first 15 seasons of his career in Boston. He returned to the Czech Republic to play for family and friends during the 2021-22 season before returning to the Bruins for the 2022-23 campaign. Craigie played well in his comeback, scoring 56 points (16 goals and 40 assists) in 70 games.

In his statement, Krejci expressed his desire to spend more time with his family now that he is retired.

“To my wife, Naomi, and children, Elina and Everett–As I write this and hear you and your children playing loudly, I am glad I get to experience it in real life rather than over the phone when we are away on trips.”

“…now it’s time for me to try to be the best husband and father I can be and support you in the next chapter of life.”

Craig is 37 years old. He has accomplished a lot in his career, including a Stanley Cup title with the Bruins in 2010-11. He goes away as one of the most productive tacklers in B history. He ranks fifth on the Bruins career leaderboards in games played (1,032), fifth in assists (555), nine points (786) and tenth in steals (1,848).

The second midfield is often delivered when it matters most in the Stanley Cup playoffs. His 128 points in the postseason was the most since his playoff debut in 2008. Craigie led the playoffs in scoring when the Bruins reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2011 and 2013. They also advanced to the Cup Final in 2019.

Krejci’s departure leaves the Bruins without solid depth and talent in the tackle position Patrice Bergeron retired earlier this season. Charlie Coyle and Pavel Zacha are expected to be the team’s first and second basemen, respectively.
