Boston Bruins forward David Krejci will have a little something to make him feel better when he goes in for surgery today: A three-year contract worth more than US$11 million. The 23-year-old Czech signed this week just days before he is scheduled to have surgery on a torn labrum in his hip. Krejci said he hopes to be back for the start of the regular season, but he could miss the first month. “I would like to return for the first game,” he said in a conference call with reporters. “I might miss the first month. We’ll see how it goes.” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he wasn’t concerned about making a commitment to a player who is about to have surgery. “He’s a young man. He’s a hard-working guy. All the indicators from the medical people that we have were positive,” Chiarelli said. Krejci led the NHL with a plus-minus rating of plus-36 this season and helped Boston to the best record in the East.
