A pair of Boston Bruins are doing well in their recovery from off-season surgery. According to general manager Don Sweeney, Torey Krug (shoulder) and David Krejci (hip) are progressing well.

“Both doing very well,” Sweeney said, per NHL.com. “I see Torey pretty regularly because he’s been around all summer. David just went down to Carolina for a few weeks. His rehab has gone very well. He’s got it set up down there for a little bit but he’s popping back up. Our doctors, our medical staff, they’re very comfortable where both those players are at in their rehab process.”

Krug is expected to miss six months from the date of the surgery (April 21). Krejci, who was operated on April 25, is supposed to be out for five months.

Both players are key parts of Boston’s roster. Krejci was tied for second on the Bruins with 63 points in 72 games. The 30-year-old should be back in late October or early November. As for Krug, the Bruins will definitely miss him on the power play. The 25-year-old had one power play goal and 19 points on the man-advantage in 81 games.
