BostonBruins.com – For former Michigan State University defenseman Torey Krug, it wasn’t an easy decision to forgo his senior season and sign with the Boston Bruins.
But after a long deliberation with his coach, teammates, family and friends, he opted to make the jump from the NCAA to the NHL.
“This is my dream to play in the National Hockey League,” Krug said during his press conference at Michigan State earlier today. “I think it’s every hockey player’s dream and to have the opportunity that I’ve been presented with by the Boston Bruins organization is tremendous and I never thought this day would come.”
Deeply saddened to hear the news of 16 year old, Kyle Fundytus, who played for the Don Wheaton’s Midget AA team…He passed away last week after taking a blocked shot to the neck, sending him into cardiac arrest… Only a true hockey player can understand the meaning of “sacrificing the body”. It takes a very special type of individual to make this sacrifice. For those of us who understand, we know that Kyle risked his life for the betterment of his team-his brothers in uniform. I am calling on those who have ever laced up a pair of skates and laid themselves on the line to honor Kyle’s memory by re-posting this on their wall… RIP Kyle you were a true hockey player
