With Brandon Carlo and Charlie McAvoy needing new deals as restricted free agents, it’s easy to forget that Torey Krug’s contract will be up at the end of this season.
On the first day of Training Camp, Krug was asked about going into the last year of his deal and getting some clarity regarding his future.
“It’s something I’m comfortable with,” said Krug. “I’ve played on one year deals before. Always had to prove myself. It’s definitely something I’d love to get some clarity on my future.”
Krug’s slated to earn a large payday next offseason due to his value as an offensive defenseman and elite power play quarterback.
“For myself, my family, to know where I’m going to play,” he said. “Something that eventually I hope can be discussed and hopefully move forward with. We’ll see where it lands.”
His current deal carries a cap-hit of $5.25 million and was signed prior to the 2016-17 season.
Krug recently told ESPN.com that he’d be interested in taking less to stay with the Bruins.
