7 Comments

The Boston Bruins have placed forward David Krejci on injured reserve and recalled Craig Cunningham from the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins.

Krejci is suffering from a lower body injury sustained during the preseason, which has bothered him throughout the first two months of the regular season.

The 28-year-old has been limited to 11 games this season including just two of the past 12 games. He has three goals and 10 points to go along with a plus-4 rating this season.

Cunningham, 24, has four goals and 13 points in 18 AHL games with Providence this season.

Originally Boston’s 2010 fourth-round selection (97th overall), Cunningham appeared in the first three games of the season with Boston before being assigned to the AHL.

Krejci will miss all four games of the Bruins’ upcoming four game western road trip, which begins Monday in Anaheim.
