Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy learned that the hard way this offseason when Torey Krug signed with the St. Louis Blues.

"'TK' was one of the first people who took me under his wing right away from the moment I got there," McAvoy told the "Cam & Strick Podcast," according to NHL.com.

CAA Seeks Court Order To End Legal Standoff With Writers Guild; WGA Responds – Update

  CAA Seeks Court Order To End Legal Standoff With Writers Guild; WGA Responds – Update UPDATED with WGA response: CAA has asked a federal judge to issue a preliminary injunction that would force the WGA East and WGA West to drop their group boycott against the agency. The move comes just two months after CAA said that it thought it had a deal with the guilds to end their long-running legal battle over packaging fees and its affiliation with wipp, its corporately related production entity. The WGA guilds, however, said no such deal had been reached, citing outstanding issues over the agency’s reduction of its ownership of wiip. Now CAA wants U.S. District Court Judge André Birotte Jr.

Bruins place McAvoy on IR; Krug returns. McAvoy still leads Bruins defenseman with six points after putting up 32 points last season. He missed 19 games in 2017-18, including sitting for a stretch when he had a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.

BRIGHTON – With the Bruins now having cost certainty with Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo in the last couple of days, the expectation There's little question that Krug holds big time value to both the Bruins , and to any suitors across the NHL that might be looking for him to hit unrestricted free agency .

Krug spent nine seasons with the Bruins, tallying 337 points across 523 games. He inked a seven-year deal carrying an average annual value of $6.5 million with the Blues on Oct. 9 when free agency opened.

It didn't appear as though Krug was eager to leave Boston. He was blunt following his signing, with the veteran saying he didn't even receive an offer from the Bruins.

McAvoy believes Krug's presence will be missed dearly.

"It definitely doesn't really feel real, showing up to training camp that he's not going to be there," the 22-year-old said. "(St. Louis) got a (really good) hockey player.

"He's an unbelievably gifted defenseman, especially on the offensive side of the puck. He just sees the game so well. He's going to make the Blues a very good hockey team."

When last season wrapped up in September, the draft and free agency followed shortly after. Though things seem to be stalled as the remaining free agents wait to see when the next campaign will begin, plenty of moves have still caught the world of hockey off guard.

Zdeno Chara also remains unsigned while pondering his future, which means Boston's blue line could look vastly different in 2021. Here's the team's projected top six:

McAvoy has already become one of the league's better two-way defenders. Now with three years already under his belt, many are projecting a breakout season for him offensively, especially if he gets some of Krug's power-play time.

"I'm definitely excited to be where I am and with this team," McAvoy said. "And I'm not really sure what's going to happen. This is kind of like a weird place to be. I (haven't) been in this position since I've been here where it kind of looks like we're restructuring a little bit on the back end.
