The Bruins had a busy Sunday, announcing the signing of Justin Florek, Zach Trotman and Torey Krug all to entry level contracts.
Florek and Trotman will report to the AHL Bruins affiliate in Boston while Krug will report to Boston and be available to the media on Tuesday.
Florek, a Michigan native, just finished his senior season at Northern Michigan University. A 6′ 4″, 200-pound forward, could be a strong addition to the organization. Originally drafted by the B’s in the fifth round (135th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, he was in attendance at the Bruins Development Camp in both 2010 and 2011.
Trotman, a 6′ 3″, 216-pound defenseman; finished his junior season at Lake Superior State University.
Although both Trotman and Florek are sure to be positive assets in the future, it’s Krug who boasts the best resume. It’s being reported that Krug will report to Boston and is eligible to play in the remaining 7 games this season. Recently finishing his junior season at Michigan State, Krug served as Captain for the past two seasons. A 2012 Hobey Baker Award finalist, Krug was also named Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) player of the year. Posting 12 goals, 22 assists and 34 points, perhaps this defenseman will lend a bit of magic to the black and gold roster.
