Bruins Center David Krejci To Miss Week With Concussion

David Krejci will miss a week or more due to a minor concussion suffered in the Boston Bruins' Saturday night loss to the St. Louis Blues. Krejci was hit by Blues center T.J. Oshie during the overtime period.

Oshie body slammed Krejci onto the boards, causing Krejci to hit his head and face up against the glass and ledge separating the glass and boards. Krejci was able to skate off with some assistance.

Krecji's status immediately post-game was uncertain, but the Bruins released official word midway through Sunday afternoon that he would miss "at least a week" with a concussion. According to ESPNBoston, Krecji is also recovering from a "facial laceration" suffered in the hit.
