Krejci deal to Czech Republic sealed
Bruins center David Krejci will sign with Pardubice in the Czech league on Thursday, his agent Larry Kelly confirmed to ESPN.com.
Krejci's plan to play in the Czech Republic during the NHL lockout was originally reported two weeks ago, but had not been made official.
Krejci is part of an ever-growing list of Bruins players lined up to play overseas during the work stoppage. They are Zdeno Chara (Prague), Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron (Switzerland), Dennis Seidenberg (Germany), Tuukka Rask and Andrew Ference (Czech Republic), Anton Khudobin (Russia) and Rich Peverley (Finland).
